We cannot review full documents in that manner because we give information and guidance and such a review is considered giving legal advice which is against this website's Terms of Service
However, if you have specific questions I can provide information to you for, you can ask them
For instance, if there is a provision about spousal support - or division of assets
You can let me know what that is
How long have you been married?
Also, if you would like to find a local attorney in your area to review for you I can provide that information
Dear Madame or Sirs,
Thank you for your fast reply. I am married for 17 Years.
What are my provision for spousal support?
What is going to happen on the 28th of June 2013, in the final court hearing, since I have not agreed to anything, yet?
How do I find a local attorney, since I live in Germany and have also an address in Washington DC. or Virginia.
Is it to late to get my rights?
What are my rights?
Thank you for your follow up questions
1 - If you have never worked, are not able to work, have no skills, etc then your support is going to be higher and permanent. But if you are able to work, have worked, are employed then your support will be less and generally granted on a temporary basis until you can get better employment.
So if the Stipulation is granting you anything in the way of support for a permanent basis, I suggest that is a good thing
Support is always based on the need of one party and the ability to pay it by the other. There are no specific guidelines for spousal support as there is child support.
However, you may click onto this link for the VA Code that governs Spousal Support2 - I thought you had said you requested a postponement so you could get legal counsel. If you have not agreed to anything, then I suggest that you will want to be at the hearing or have local counsel there for you or the requests made by your spouse could be granted in default of a non response and non appearance.
3 - I suggest that you can use the VA Bar Association for a legal referral service1-800-552-7977 and consider having a local attorney assist you - and they can file the proper information to have this matter postponed for you.
It is not too late to have a VA Attorney assist you and make sure that all your rights are covered. If you have been married 17 years, you want to be sure that you are properly represented in any pension that your spouse may be entitled to. Additionally, your share of any joint assets. There is a lot to be considered and that is why I suggest you consider having a local VA attorney to assist you
can you give me a divorce lawyer in Alexandria VA. How is pro marriage and pro military spouse.
I suggest that you can use the VA Bar Association for a legal referral service1-800-552-7977 If you call that number, they will help put you in touch with a VA attorney in good standing. And you can tell them you want an attorney in family law familiar with military spouses.
Thank you and good luck with everything
I just talked to my husband. and he is telling me that if I do not sign the stipulation agreement before the final court hearing that he would loose certain amount of money. on taxes...
he really wants me to sign the agreement saying is the best for me. I really used trust him with everything. However, I feel pressured to sign something wich could be to my best.
Is he right that he would loose taxes on the amount of agreement if I do not sign it before the court date?
