My divorce decree states that I am to get a portion of the ex husbands Federal Thrifts Savings Plan but it has been 3 months and I have not received anything nor any information about it. Was I supposed to do something? I assumed the courts would...
The Court will not do anything to actively assist in the division of the TSP. Either you will need to figure out how to accomplish the division or you will need the assistance of an attorney.
Here is a link to a booklet that explains the process: https://www.tsp.gov/PDF/formspubs/tspbk11.pdf
Many attorneys that respond on AVVO will be able to assist you with this issue, even attorneys that may not be in the Ocala area, since much, if not all, of the work involved to divide the TSP is not litigation in the courtroom.See question
My boyfriend wants to get married but he's on child support for his daughter and he's currently going through a case for his son. Will I be responsible for any of that child support at any time. Will my 401k be up for grabs at anytime?
From a legal standpoint, if you married your boyfriend you do not become obligated for his child support. From a practical standpoint, however, his child support obligation will drain the household finances. Also, to the extent that you have joint bank accounts and/or file joint tax return refunds, those assets could be attached for failure to pay child support, should that be the case.See question

It is not a good idea to include your name in your post. Also, in order to get a response, you need to ask a more clear question.See question
Hello, I'd like to know how to go about changing from paying child support directly to the courthouse, to directly to my ex-wife instead. It's just easier to do it this way and my ex wife is in agreement with it. Is there a simple form we both...
If the change is by Stipulation and Order, you can avoid filing a Petition and having a hearing. The issue is that the necessary language is a bit tricky, so I would recommend that you use an attorney to assist you. Many attorneys will do this on a small flat fee basis.See question
I got divorced last year. My ex did not show up because he was trying to avoiding being served for child support. In the divorce paper, it stated "the court reserves jurisdiction on child support and future enforcement of this judgement." Now I fo...

I'm military retired. Getting divorced after 16 years. Spouse just went back to work and does not have money as of yet. I have evidence that spouse is having sexual relations and is using my money to do so. She currently does not want my retir...
Florida is a no fault state, which means that the unfaithfulness of your spouse would not prevent her from receiving part of your retired pay.
The possible good news for you is that if you served 20 years and you have been married to your spouse for 16 years, then, theoretically, the marital part of your retired pay is 16/20 and her part would only be a maximum of 40% and not 50%.
Your military retired pay is a very valuable asset. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you consult with an attorney, who is not only experienced in family law, but in handling military divorces, since there may be certain things that you could do to minimize your risk.
Good luck with your case!See question
He's living in Ohio
You will either need the assistance of the Department of Revenue, Child Support Enforcement, or a private attorney. The benefit of the private attorney is the personalized service that you will receive.
With the two of you in different states, it is unlikely that this is something that you can handle on your own.
Seek a consultation with an experienced family law attorney in your area.See question
I divorced in 2004. Our support order does not include a termination date or any type of termination language. My son turns 18 in a few days. Department of Revenue tells me that I can send my final payment in January, but almost every attorney I'v...
The answer to your question is entirely dependent on the specific language of your Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage and Marital Settlement Agreement. Assuming that you have accurately stated that there is no specific end, such as "reaching the age of majority" or "upon graduation from high school" or some time frame, then child support ends on the child's 18th birthday. There is nothing, however, that prohibits your former wife from filing a Petition to Modify Child Support to extend it through high school graduation, but not beyond age 19. Until there is a ruling from the Court on such a Petition, the advice given by the Department of Revenue is correct.
To be sure of your position, I recommend consulting with an experienced family law attorney, being sure to provide your Final Judgment and Settlement Agreement to the attorney for review.See question
My ex and I agreed in the mediation to alternate years on claiming our daughter on income taxes. This will be my first year claiming her (the 2016 tax year). In our agreement, it states that I can claim her on my years, unless I am behind on c...
Under the case law in Florida, unless your agreement specifically provides for a different date for the determination of "current," "current" is determined as of the last day of the year, which, if you are trying to claim the child for 2016, means December 31, 2016.
I always advise my client to check their child support account no later than December 20, so that the client has time to bring the account current before the end of the year.
Also, some judges take the position that current means not only current in periodic child support but also being current in all child support, including reimbursement support, such as timely paying your share of health care expenses, for example.See question

Under the circumstances that you describe, it would be highly unusual for your wife to be awarded alimony, other than, perhaps, a small lump sum to assist her in moving out and establishing herself in another apartment/residence.See question
