I'm self employed as a sole practitioner of a medical practice. My spouse and I are negotiating an amount for "permanent" support in a divorce case. I've done some reading and it appears that if I pay her support from the earnings of the business,...
In some sense, it's "double-dipping", but, at least in California, it's still the law, though it seems unfair.
Look at it this way: if you and she bought a rental property together, during the marriage, and you wanted to keep the rental property you'd need to pay her half the value at the time of divorce. That's the division of property
You'd then have the rental property, and to the extent the rental property generated INCOME to you, your SUPPORT obligation would be based in part on that income.
To the extent she takes her buy-out money from the business, and invests it in something else which generates income to HER, the court will consider HER income in setting support.See question
Can I amend my divorce decree.? I was divorced in 1999...california...was married 21yrs. My lawyer did not fight at all for me. She was very ill at the time she represented me...I did not realize she was dying of cancer. She hid it well....she pas...
If you were 40 at the time of the dissolution, nothing would have been "automatic", and unless you agreed that the support was non-modifiable, it was and is modifiable. You've now been divorced almost as long as you were married, and you've been out of work for four years, why is this only becoming an issue now? Take your paperwork to an EXPERIENCED family law attorney, for review, NOW, since if you request an increase, it will only be effective as of the date you file the request. You may also wish to serve a request for a new income/expense declaration on your ex to find out his current financial picture.See question

Did you have an attorney representing you at the hearing? If so, talk to him/her. If not, the chances that you will get the restraining order revoked, or get it vacated by appeal, are VERY small.See question
Just wondering if the Petitioner files his Response to Joinder how will this delay further visitation? And, will Petitioner still need to appear?
Not enough information. Not clear what you are referring to when you make reference to "Joinder". A "joinder" adds someone, besides the two spouses/parents, to a case. Who's being added? Who's asking that they be added? Why?See question

Sorry, but :
Her attorney wasn't your attorney, and you weren't his client. He (or she) owed you no duty of care, and you can't (successfully) sue him for negligence, or report him to the Bar for negligence.
Your ex isn't required to finish a divorce.
If you didn't take steps to make sure it was done, then there's exactly one person legally responsible for any problems which yo now have because it wasn't.
I am involved in a divorce where I have to pay my wife's attorney a portion of her attorneys fees. The attorney is demanding I give her a money order made payable to cash.
Sounds slightly fishy. Issue her a check, or cashiers' check, and let her explain to the judge wht that's not satisfactory.See question
What can be expected in court.
Impossible to say without more facts, which shouldn't be posted on a public website. He should get a lawyer . If he can't afford a lawyer, he should ask for an appointed lawyer.See question

No can do. The judge will not dispose of the matter before the calendared date. Whether a judge considers a late response or not depends on (a) the judge (b) WHY the response was late ((c) how late it is and (d) what it says.See question

You can get a divorce, or you can get a nullity, those are the only two choices. If you're going to try and get a nullity, you should also ask for a dissolution, in case you are UNsuccessful in getting the nullity (it can happen).See question
