I live in Florida and my husband filed for divorce after

I live in Florida and my husband filed for divorce after leaving me and abandoning our marriage to be with his affair partner. He left me with 2 kids all of the bills and I have no money to hire an attorney. That being said, I filed my response by myself and today received a letter from his attorney that a motion had been filed to strike my response because it includes requests for affirmative relief as opposed to affirmative defenses. What should I do next?

I m trying to acces the site. Thank you.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: NJ. My husband has anger issues. We have two minor children. He is verbally abusive, has a recurrent alcohol problem (twice witnessed when the children were in his care). I am the breadwinner. I want a divorce, but need to strategize, since he seems like he is ready to "take me to the cleaners." I don't care about the material things as much as custody of the children.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. We went to counseling for a while. Being the "forgiving wife," I have never filed anything. But I have emails with his admission, and a video of him "plastered" a few years ago.JA: I think they do a wonderful job.

My husband refuses to leave the home, even though tensions seem to be escalating. Throughout our ENTIRE marriage, i.e. 8.5 years, the entire income was mine. His pretext being it was difficult to find a job. He is now a Permanent Resident through me, our relationship was lived between Europe, Africa, Canada and the US until he got his papers a year ago. I am at a point where I really would rather not share the same space as him. Thank you.

My son is planning to marry a female from Ecuador in the

My son is planning to marry a female from Ecuador in the next four months. She is coming here on a fiance (K-1) visa in the middle of October. He presently own a house, a business and will inherit the building (from parents) his business is housed in before his fiance arrives in middle of October. Exactly what is she entitled to if my son does marry her within the ninety day time frame, which would be by the middle of January 2017??? Is a prenuptial agreement in order at this time? You always hope for the best outcome, but if a year from their marriage it does not turn out well and they divorce I don't believe she is entitled to half of his possessions. We live in New Jersey and NJ has alimony laws, so I am gessing she would be entitled to alimony? Also, if they were to have children, I believe that child at birth becomes an American citizen, so legally she would not be able to take that child back to Ecuador if she chose to return to her native country.
