my wife moved out almost two years ago and has establish domicile in another city with her boyfriend. How long am I responsible for being liable for the safety and storage of her posessions as we enter the divorce process?
If you are entering the divorce process now, I would recommend that you send official notification to her or, if she has an attorney, to her attorney, that you are going to start throwing out unused property in the house. Give her a time frame and a way to getting the property. Be businesslike in the communication and send it certified mail, restricted delivery, signature required.See question
My wife and I have been separated for over two years. I have created my profiles on online dating sites. Now we started the divorce proceedings, Since we are "technically" still married, can she use it against me in court once we go for divorce? I...
The courts of PA do not take into account activities engaged in after separation. It might be different if you living in the same house and bringing women there, but you have been separated for two years. In addition to this, your wife would have to have filed for a fault divorce. But even then, the fault would have to have occurred prior to the separation.See question
My work schedule changes about 3 to 4 times a year as union contracted. I can only pick a schedule that my seniority can hold. Would my schedule changing 3 to 4 times a year affect a custody matter ?
The court will attempt to work out a schedule that fits both parents' schedules to reach as close to a 50-50 split of custody as is possible. For most people, this is never a perfect split of custody time. In your case, however, you know ahead of time that your schedule will change, so you can have the court take account of it in the custody order. You can also file to modify when you know a change is coming up. This is not a perfect solution because the court takes time to hear to a case, so making the court aware of your scheduling changes when your case is being heard is very important.See question

Many people represent themselves adequately in child support conferences. The good thing is that, should you fail to have your issues addressed, you may request and shall receive a hearing date with a support master. The master can address your issues anew, and you can bring an attorney with you even if you did not bring one for the conference. It sounds like you need to file for a modification as soon as possible. Do so now - the date with be around a month from now, possibly longer, but the change will reach back to now.
You should receive credit for overpayments. Raise this issue with the conference officer. However, you may need to deal directly with domestic relations in Harrisburg on this issue. Call again and see if you can find out anything else. Also, ask if you can speak with a higher lever supervisor about the overpayments when you are at the conference. Someone may be able to help you at the office who you would not be able to speak to on the phone.
Good luck.See question
We never lived in the home together because it was still being remolded before we separated
Your question does not state enough facts to give a complete answer. However, if he purchased the house before the marriage, and he can afford to keep it, he will be able to. If the increase in value of the house, combined with other marital assets and considerations in equity, creates a situation where he wants to give you the house in order to get something else that he wants, then you could get the house. Many issues go into equitable distribution, so you need to sit down with an attorney in order to get a clearer idea of your situation.See question
Her payments fell behind on the house she owns (mainly due to no support from her ex-spouse). Anyway she does not live at that residence - no one does. She received a letter from a lawyer stating that she is being sued for the balance. Is this ...
Your sister's house was sold to pay off the mortgage. The difference between the amount that the house sold for, which hopefully was fair market value, and the amount due on the mortgage, is called the deficiency. She is still liable for the deficiency. If her husband was on the mortgage, he is also liable for it. Different banks handle the deficiency differently.
The question of what to do now needs to be asked of a bankruptcy lawyer. Generally they handle collections cases as well. I am re-posting this question in that category.See question
My ex husband and I share 50/50 custody of our two daughters for the past two years. I had custody and gave him 50/50 two years ago when he moved to my area. Our children attend the school in my zone by my address. Now, we are thinking of enrol...
Many factors go into determining the best interests of the children. The address at which the school district believes the children live is not really a factor if the actual living arrangements do not change. The courts in PA favor 50-50 custody arrangements. If father tries to move from the area and take the children with him, he would have to prove that it is in their best interests, as you would if you wished to move from the area. But since both of you are in the same school district, I do not believe, absent any other facts, that the court would be willing to change the schedule in his favor.See question
We've been married for 29 years he's an alcoholic we both live in the house he's cheating on me I want a divorce will I get half the house or not even though it's only in his name
I agree with Mr. Noble's answer. I would like to emphasize that you have rights to the house. Over 29 years, the house would have increased in value, even with the market downturn. So even if the house is pre-marital, you have rights to some amount of value in it for which he will have to compensate you.See question

Child support belongs to the child and not the parent. The answer, therefore, is yes, if she has custody again, then she can file for child support. If she does not have the child, then she cannot file. Keep in mind that whoever has the child can always file against your husband.See question
