My soon to be officially ex-wife asked me to move out as she wants a divorce. I agreed. She expects me to keep paying our bills such as mortgage and her car payment (she's unemployed and looking for work) for awhile. Eventually she also expects me...
Sounds like you are getting divorced. Your decree of dissolution will spell out the details of who occupies the house, who pays for, and what happens if the payor defaults on the house payment. The decree of dissolution will also spell out who pays how much maintenance (spousal support) if any, and for how long. The parenting plan will determine where the children are on any given day. The Order of Child Support will establish who pays what in child support. You really need to speak to an attorney to make sure you are getting a reasonable deal.See question
We bought property three years ago. I have always paid mortgage . We have two children.
You can't remove your husband's name from the deed unless he agrees to it. In addition, it sounds like you have 2 children, are living alone, but don't have child support or a parenting plan. I suggest you get divorced and move on with your life.See question
I've been living with my girlfriend since 2011. I purchased a home in 2014, and have lived in that home for about 2 years now with her. I purchased it and pay the mortgage, bills, everything on my own. What precautions can I take before getting...
A court will enforce a pre-nup that is procedurally fair. That means both sides have an attorney, full disclosure on both side's financial picture, and the pre-nup is signed, IMHO, at least six months before the wedding date. If a pre-nup is not procedurally fair, a court will look at its terms to determine if it is fair.
If you don't get a pre-nup and you get married, and then, years later divorced, the court may award her some of your separate property.
If you don't get married and continue living together for years, and then you split up, she can file for dissolution of committed intimate relationship. The result might be that she gets 1/2 the community property, but she would not have a legal claim to any of your separate property.
If you are worried about protecting yourself, you should hire an atty.
I have a parenting plan that no longer works and my ex wouldn't budge on changing it. I can no longer visit my child on weekends like we have laid out in parenting plan due to work schedule. My ex refuses any mid week visits. He also has decided t...
NEW WORK SCHEDULE. A change in work schedule that prevents you from exercising the current residential schedule qualifies as a substantial change of circumstances so that you file a petition to modify the parenting plan. File a proposed new residential schedule at the same time as the petition. You should talk to an attorney about whether you can file a major modification or a minor modification.
STEP PARENT. You have the right and obligation to exercise all the time allotted in the parenting plan. Your ex is obligated to make the child available during you allotted time. If he doesn't, file a contempt motion. The parenting plan is enforceable against the father, not the step mother. However, if the step mother is truly being difficult, you do have a few options. You should speak to an experienced family law attorney to explore what some of these options are.
My divorce was final 5/26/16, we still live together in the home. I want to move out. He will not follow advice of our realtor and lower the price in order to sell. He has been making every effort to make the sale of the house difficult, i.e listi...
I suggest you come in for an office consultation to discuss what to do. You need to enforce the decree, that may mean filing a motion to enforce and to appoint a special master to sign any documents necessary to drop the sale prices and, perhaps, the purchase and sale and other agreements necessary to actually sell the house.
I infer from your post that you can't move out until the house is sold because you don't have any money. He recognizes this, and doesn't want to sell because he doesn't want you to move out. This controlling and improper. I suggest you hire an atty to apply the strong arm of the law.
In my recent divorce my ex-husband has awarded me a certain amount of money towards a house when I find a home to purchase. I want to purchase land and put a home on it. He is refusing to give me the money to do this and says that as the time come...
I suggest you bring your divorce decree and any other related papers for an office consultation. If you have a judgment, you can collect it at any time. However, there may be strategic reasons to collect it at specific times. For example, right after you know he has extra money from sale of stock, a house, or some other assets. If you don't have a judgment, then you probably should go to court to convert the award in the decree to a judgment. You really don't want to be in the position where your ex tells you when and how much he will pay you. This is controlling and unhealthy.See question
My parenting plan states: "Each parent may practice his or her religion with the children during his or her residential time. Each parent may observe his and her own religion with the children. Regardless of the religious differences between the ...
The court will enforce the parenting plan. This provision is rather detailed and somewhat unusual, so it sounds like this issue was discussed and negotiated before you signed the parenting plan. This makes it more likely the court will enforce it.
I don't think it would be reasonable to withhold your consent unless there is some genuine conflict. For example, if your son is already baptized Catholic and neither religion allows dual baptism. The court wouldn't find that there was something improper about the religion unless it was off-the-charts awful. For example, a cult where the girls get raped by the leader when they are 12 years old. Whatever you may think of "Mormonism," it doesn't fit into this category.
Our parenting plan states we can have 2 weeks vacation with the kids every year by notifying the other parent in writing within 30 days. If I have given him more than 30 days notice and he objects to the vacation, can I still take my kids out of s...
Before I gave you a definitive answer, I would need to read the parenting plan and any other relevant orders. For example, does the parenting plan say neither parent can travel with the children outside the state or country? if it does, then you need to engage in the dispute resolution required by the plan before you travel.
If there is no such restriction, then you prob. can travel unless he gets a court order preventing it. In this scenario, I would send him a letter informing him that you will travel despite his objection and provide an itinerary where the children may be reached during the vacation. Tell him if he wants to prevent the travel, he will need to get a court order.
My co-parent and I have agreed via email to an issue concerning our children. I would like to make this agreement a permanent part of the parenting plan and he agreed to sign whatever addendum/form needed to incorporate this provision. I've looked...
I would enter an agreed stipulation and order. No need to enter an entire new parenting plan, in my opinion. There is no form for an agreed stipulation and order. However, a decent family law attorney could prob. interview you and draft the stip / order in an hour. Agreed orders involving children usually must be entered in person, rather than by the clerk, so that may take another hour or so.See question

CAN SHE FILE A LAWSUIT: Of course, she can do whatever she wants. The question is, does the lawsuit have any merit?
CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR INSURANCE WITHOUT RUNNING AFOUL OF YOUR ORDER OF CHILD SUPPORT. You haven't said anything that indicates you are preventing from changing insurance. However, she has the option to adjust the order of child support every two years based on a change in income / expenses. If, by changing your insurance, you changed her uninsured medical expenses, then she can change the transfer payment. So, it is quite possible that you are simply robbing Peter to pay Paul. In other words, your insur. premium will go down, but your transfer payment will go up. To figure this out, you need to run the worksheets under the new scenario to determine if you have actually saved yourself $ by changing the insurance.
