The wife lives in Pennsylvania(address unknown) and my father-in-law lives between New York, Virginia and Jamaica. Thanks for your help.
Generally speaking, a court in the United States would recognize the validity of a marriage, had it been a valid marriage in the country in which it was performed.
A major question that arises is was this marriage registered in any state? If not, does PA, presumably where the wife lives, recognize common law marriage?
That being said, contact a local family law attorney with the details of the marriage to find out exactly what can or cannot be done.
My husband & I agree to divorce, I need more details on the process regarding assets, children custody, taxes & more.
The best thing you can do is see a local attorney. There are many attorneys that you can find through AVVO that will offer a free consultation in your jurisdiction that will give you a much better idea how to proceed.

Generally speaking marital property in DE includes all property acquired by either party subsequent to the marriage except: property acquired by either spouse by bequest, or gift, property acquired in exchange for property acquired before marriage, and property excluded by valid agreement by the parties.
DE law allows the court to divide, distribute and assign the property between the parties without regard to marital misconduct as the court deems as just after taking into account things like: length of the marriage, prior marriages, age, health, station, income, vacations skills, employability of the parties, whether the property is in lieu of alimony, value of property, contribution of each party to the acquisition, economic circumstances of each party at time of division, and the debts of the parties. This is not an exhaustive list of the factors will consider. The best thing that you can do is contact a local attorney to get a better idea of what you can expect.

You should follow the judgment given by the judge in the divorce decree. If you want to do something different from what the decree states you you should get a modification prior to taking action. Contact a local family law attorney to help you get that modification.

You should probably contact the local authorities to see if a crime has actually been committed in your jurisdiction. You can also contact the local states attorney or prosecutor as well.
my boyfriend pulled me by my wrist and cops asked if i wanted to press charges i told them no, but yet he is charged with it. how can that happen? and do the police have to read ur writes to you no matter what?
The police can charge your boyfriend with a crime if they feel like he committed it. You not pressing charges has a part to play in it as well. But its not dependent upon you. The state can then choose to prosecute him for that crime. Contact a criminal defense attorney in your jurisdiction to find the best way to handle the situation moving forward.

Contact a local attorney as soon as possible. Your boyfriend may be able to get a protective order against his wife if she is acting in a manner that could harm the children. Also, just because she is the one causing problems for the kids, doesn't mean your boyfriend is released from liability. If someone contacts child services, both parents may end up in a lot of trouble. The best thing that can be done is to retain local counsel.

To change a judge you have to show cause. This is a very difficult standard to establish.

The premise of child support is that you are no longer married. Since you have gotten married again, this is no longer necessary. Contact a local family law attorney and have this taken care of officially in your jurisdiction.
