My ex-husband and I owned a business, a corporation based in

My ex-husband and I owned a business, a corporation based in New Mexico. A few years ago he began working in Texas outside of Dallas due to the lack of work (construction) in New Mexico. Although I went down frequently to help out, I never moved full-time to TX. About a year and a half ago he met a woman and became involved with her. She immediately began to take over control of the company and his life. We got divorced (finalized Nov. 30, 2015) and as part of the settlement, I signed over my 50% ownership of the corporation to my ex.Initially he was paying all of our bills, as well as paying me alimony, but several months ago he began saying he was broke. He began to suspect that this woman who'd taken over his business was taking money from the corporation but couldn't be sure. About a month ago I finally convinced him to get all of the bank statements, credit card statements, etc. so that I could prepare the books for our accountant so that he could file our 2015 corporate taxes. The upshot is that between making personal charges on the business credit card and taking cash withdraws from the business account (yes, he did put her on the account), she stole almost $300,000! My ex-husband is now completely broke, which of course affects my financial situation and has a credit card with a $60,000 balance on it. He is still living with this woman but wants to move back to New Mexico and start over with me. I realize that I probably can't sue this woman, but I would think that he can. What do you think?

I live in Florida. My husband bought a house (loan in his name, my name on deed) while we were married. It's now worth about $160,000. I make about 5-10k more a year than he does. I have asked for only a $400 tv, $650 bed, and our 3 dogs. He won't let me have all I've requested. He wants to take me for alimony. Can he? Also, if he's unwilling to accept my offer, I could go after him for half of everything, but will that mean I'll have to pay alimony? Lastly, can he kick me out of the house?

My husband has left me for a 19 year old. We are both 40. We

My husband has left me for a 19 year old. We are both 40. We rent a ranch house from his mothers investment. We completed the construction on the home. The verbal agreement was that we would split the profit if the home ever sold. She has decided to keep the profit and wants me to move out with our two daughters. My husband has already moved out. What I am concerned about is that I have worked full time since 2009. We were married in 1999. I was a stay at home mom before the economy turn bad. I have a good job and collect a consistent paycheck. My husband and I own two businesses that have not been profitable. At least he has never shown them to be on paper. If the state ever took a look at his tax returns it would show no income or very little. My question is if I have made more money than my husband am I going to be responsible to pay him alimony. Or will he be held responsible since he worked longer in the marriage than I did. When the economy was good he made great money. I feel since he has cheated on me and left the marriage I must have some advantage. I need your advice on what my best onions are in this situation

I am hoping you can help me. I would like to know if I can

Hello! I am hoping you can help me. I would like to know if I can file a Police Report on a woman who drained $5,000 of my Military Benefits from an account. The woman is my long-ago Ex-Wife. (she and her family have been in and out of court/jail for numerous things.) We officially Divorced in PA in 2011 with NO children, NO shared property, NO alimony, NO strings attached, etcetc. and I moved far away out of state.In 2014 I finally received a claim compensation for injuries sustained during my time in Iraq from back in 2009-2010. They transferred the funds into an old direct-deposit account that had previously been linked to myself & the Ex during my deployment, that had just been sitting empty but never closed. They notified me that it was where the funds had been deposited once they realized that this wasn't my current bank account. I said that was fine, dug up the old information to log in and went to simply transfer them.Well, the Ex had also gotten a notification that funds had been deposited and immediately drained all of the funds from the account. Upon learning this, I contacted her immediately to get them back and she claimed that she “thought it was the money that she applied for from a Government loan”, she “didn't realize that wasn't her money" and she had already paid her Mortgage Debt with them. She said that she “is not going to steal my money” (I have all of these many messages from her stating all of this) and that she would pay it back once the actual loan came through that she thought it was in the first place. I have tried to be nice about it (although this is not someone who is trustworthy and “innocently” does things like this) and eventually she gave back $2,500.(proof that it was admittedly stolen in the first place)It has now been TWO years and she will not return calls/texts/emails, etc and no further money toward the outstanding $2,500 has been paid back. This is a lot of money to me and leaves me no choice. I have been advised that this is actually a Law Enforcement issue, not a Family Law issue since this was the equivalent of her coming and stealing my car or other property instead of it being some “Divorce” complication...but would like to ask a Lawyer to be sure before I call her local Police Precinct...? Is there anything the Veterans affairs people could also be helping me with since it was direct Army benefits that were supposed to be paid only to me? Thank you in advance for any and all advice!
