I am living in Florida and he lives in California. I need to know how I may contest his petition correctly.
You can ask for your share of the community property in your Response, form FL 110. Your rights with regard to the pension will be the subject of your negotiations with your former husband. However, before you do that, you should make sure that CA has jurisdiction over your marital property. You don't say whether he moved to CA after separation or you moved from CA (or somewhere else) to FL. Even though you are in FL, the jurisdictional question can be answered by a FL family law attorney. Just tell that lawyer that CA has "long-arm jurisdiction."See question
I filed for divorce in 2013 and the divorce was never settled, she filed in 2016 in the state of Utah
I agree with my colleague's responses. I suggest that you take the answers to those questions and consult with a family law attorney. You can consult with a lawyer about your question for little or no cost through a lawyer referral service in your area.

I am a stay at home mom with 2 kids. My fiancé and i have been living together 6 years with our 2 kids. Situation is not healthy and i might have to leave. What am i entitled to if anything?
You would be able to ask for child support and health insurance for the children. Other expenses, such as child care to allow you to work, may also be available. Go to Child Support Services for your county. you can get more information at http://www.childsup.ca.gov/. Without costing you anything, they will assist you in finding the other parent and obtaining a child support order. Note that they have many more resources, including access to state and federal income tax and social security information.See question
My son is in NV, ex is in CA. She is/was pregnant (reported due date 2/14/17) but we can not be sure on paternity (she says it is my son's). Last we heard on 8/3/16 she was in the hospital for cramping but she has refused to respond to any communi...
You will need to await the birth of the child. At that time, he can file an action seeking to have a paternity test. He can consult with a lawyer about the question for little or no cost through a lawyer referral service in your area.

We are in the middle of a very bad divorce. We have a home we purchased 5 years ago, but the mortgage is only under my wife's name. She is threatening to put the house under her mom's name so I don't get half of the house. Is this possible for her...
If you are currently involved with the divorce and assuming that a Petition has been filed and that she has been served, if she did not file the Petition, then she is under the Standard Family Law Restraining Orders which prohibits such a transaction. She will be defying a court order for which she will be sanctioned. While you said that the mortgage is only in her name, you didn't discuss the title. However, for these purposes, It does not matter if title is only in her name.See question
My ex-husband and I wish to split a pension plan 50%/50%. The Pension was earned during the time we were married. Ex-husband no longer works there. He left the company before we got separated (and divorced). The Pension Plan is from a US-based ...
I agree with Ms. Straus. Check with the Plan Administrator with regard to whether or not it needs to be "joined" to the action. My experience suggests that will be an unnecessary step.
Since you seem to have returned to Sweden, you may want to consider rolling the entire 401(k) account into an IRA and then dividing the IRA. Dividing an IRA can be done with a fairly simple stipulation and order whereas a Qualified Domestic Relations Order is a sophisticated tax related order. If you go the QDRO route, it is generally better to take the Plan's form to someone who prepares QDROs. There may be choices about allocation or distribution that the Plan's form does not address, but that may be available.
Whatever you do: DO NOT distribute any funds to either of you without a "trustee-to-trustee transfer" such as a QDRO for the 401(k) or a stipulation and order for an IRA.

Check with the Recorder's Office of the County where you obtained the forms to see if anyone filed the form that says the marriage was solemnized. See http://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/birthdeathmar/Pages/MarriageLicenseInformation.aspx for further information.See question
Recently, I was informed I am married in the state of Texas in the US as a result of identity theft in January 2012. What can be done about a situation like this as I do not know the person being the spouse and someone probably used my lost stole...
I agree with Ms. Straus that you are not married and, therefore, don't need a divorce. Do a Google search for folks who can assist with addressing the identity theft as there are probably other issues that will arise, both financial and with regard to social security and income taxes.See question
Ok so my ex just disappeared after we seperated 3years ago. We have 2 kids together and he doesn't pay child support or anything. I just want to get full custody and my divorce how do I do that if I can't serve him papers?

I agree that you may need to serve by "publication" which is designed for situations like yours, but is somewhat complicated. What is the custody issue? While it's important for your daughter to have regular contact with both parents, it may need to wait until the other parent asks. Since you can't get divorced without proper service, you should go ahead with the publication and get the orders that you need.
