My husband and I have been married for 20 years. We own a

My husband and I have been married for 20 years. We own a home and have owned and operated a small business for 10 years. We have both worked there. As of the present time we are talking divorce but I feel he is trying to screw me over financially first. I have reason to believe that he has deposited accounts receivable checks into an account excluding me and has let our jointly owned account dwindle down to nothing. I think he is also trying to refinance our jointly owned marital home to keep me from receiving 50% of the equity. He has been hiding money. He has made threats to cut me off financially and he has. He deliberately provokes me into reacting with anger than records it so he can use it against me. I am not aware he is recording. I had no choice but to open credit cards in my name so I can buy what I need and he wont even pay those bills. He cut me out of our health insurance and did not tell me. Can he get away with all this? Am I protected in any way? Should I press charges for the recordings and threats? I need some advice.

Hi, I have a question regarding how stock proceeds are handled if there is a pre-nup.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: PAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I'm seeking advice for my cousin who is presently incarcerated. He and his wife are going through a divorce and there's a pre-nup in place that states she is not entitled to the stock. However, he gets a monthly annuity from the sale of that stock. His wife has asked a judge to freeze the payment from the company because his current girlfriend is in charge of his income.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, I'd like to know if the monthly income is considered martial property that the judge could freeze. The stock is worth about $2.5 million, which includes a 6% interest over the course of 20 year. The monthly income he has is about $17,500.00.

I was recently approved for Survivor Benefits from second

I was recently approved for Survivor Benefits from second husband. SS requires that "work and earnings" be reported to allow them to adjust payments. I am 62, still employed. Do I need to report my property settlement (third husband) from recent divorce as income even though it is stated that I do not have to claim this for tax purposes? Also, I took $8000 (before taxes) from my 401k to cover debt from attorney fees and medical bills. My plan is to use the medical debt to offset this withdrawal. Do I still need to report this withdrawal to SS? Please do not advise me to refer to my attorney, that relationship no longer exists.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: To SS?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time..
