My husband walked out on us and locked me out of the joint account the very same day. At the time I had to focus on my kids. We both are retired military. My regular retirement was going to an individual account, as suggested by the lawyer, but th...
I assume that this is military disability. Attorney Hayes is correct, military disability is not a marital asset and cannot be divided by the Family Court. Federal law, the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act, found at 10 U.S.C. 1408, exempts VA disability payments from division in a divorce. You will need to file suit against him in circuit court.
My wife and I have been separated for 13 months. No court order separation but family court said the text she sent saying"I packed my stuff and I'm leaving" was satisfactory. She established a new residence with her current fiancé and has not been...
Mr. Holland is correct in that law enforcement is unlikely to get involved. Contact a divorce attorney and file for a divorce based on adultery. The family court can divide the marital property and make her return any that is yours including the dog.

It appears that you own an one fourth undivided interest in the property. They can legally sell their three fourths but not your one fourth. However, they can take you to court and have the property sold at public auction. Since you live out of state, it would be in your best interest to retain an attorney to review the sale for you.See question

Since there was no will, the house and all of his other property will pass by South Carolina probate law and his children will share and share alike. Unless you and your mother can buy out her sister, it is likely the house will have to be sold. Your mother should consider filing to be appointed the personal representative of the estate.

In South Carolina you cannot disinherit a spouse. A surviving spouse has a right to claim at least one third of the estate and it does not matter whether she is incapacitated or not. Since it appears that you have substantial assets and they are located in multiple states, you need to consult with a probate attorney, especially if you want to insure that your children receive what you want them to receive.

I am not clear whether there was a will or not but it seems as if there was. If the will is valid and it leaves his entire estate to your stepmother, then she will receive all of the proceeds from the estate as there is no requirement that the children be left anything. If there was no will, then you and your siblings should consult with a South Carolina probate attorney before signing anything or if you think the will may not be valid.

(3) educational background of the parties;
(4) employment history and earning potential of the parties;

It appears that there may have been more involved than just driving with an expired tag. She needs to consult with a Greenville traffic attorney to discuss her options.See question
