My ex wants to modify our non-modifiable divorce decree

My ex wants to modify our non-modifiable divorce decree because he's claiming decreased income, however his home has increased a million dollars since we divorced. He's a very high powered sports agent and was averaging 500,000 a year before he started his own business . Truth is he's burned out and doesn't "want" to stay in his field. We have a non modifiable w/ a cohabitation clause. I have currently moved in w/ my fiance, but could move out tomorrow . He hasn't filed anything yet. We were married 20 years and I'm receiving 4,000 a month until 2021 then 3,000 until 2023. Does he have a winning case?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: californiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: i think i covered How much is the entire question so I know

This is for John. If he is not available within the next hour I will wait for him. When requesting an uncontested divorce do I need to be at the hearing or can my lawyer represent me. Or at least can I just call in if I am out of town?

My question is about social security. I am the widow of a 19

My question is about social security. I am the widow of a 19 year marriage but remarried before age 60 so would not have a survivor spouse benefit. However, if I am divorced prior to receiving social security, would I be eligible to draw on my dead husband's benefit and switch to my own @ 70? If so, is there a period of time I must be divorced prior to filing? My deceased husband did not receive any benefit prior to his death @ 60. I am 64 and work full time and my current husband makes much less than I or my deceased husband. Trying to figure out the best plan to maximize benefits. Thank you!JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OklahomaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NOJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of.

Pease: I need help understanding this. I am exlploring my

Pease: I need help understanding this.I am exlploring my legal options to own or invest on a company in the US. I'm on H1 status, my wirfe is on H4 and my mother in law comes to visit on a tourist visa.Multiple lawyers have told me that me or my wife or even my mother in law1. can create an llc or be part of it AS LONG AS I, MY WIFE OR MY MOTHER IN LAW DO NOT WORK FOR THE LLC.AND2. THAT FOR ME, MY WIFE OR MY MOTHER IN LAW IT IS LEGAL TO RECEIVE DIVIDENDS FROM THE LLC.A LAWYER FROM THIS WEBSITE WROTE THE NOTE BELOW: Please read and help me understand what he meant. What does he means when he says that:A. my wife could not receive any income from the company on h4 status? can she get dividends legally if she's the owner or a member?ANDb. that it would not be possible for my wife to earn any money from the business if she's an owner or a member?I need to have clarification on this as I need to make sure that if we decide to create an llc or invest in an llc we will not be in violation of our migration status which is h1 and h4.'....The attorney was partially correct and incorrect. There are no restrictions on your wife opening up a business in the US and it can be of any size, any type of business entity, any amount of capitalization. The issue is that she cannot receive any income from the company in H-4 status so unless her position in the company would be such that she would qualify for a H-1B classification and the company would be in a financial position to petition for her H-1B status.However, it would not be possible for her to earn any money from the business. You could also not work at the business on the terms of your visa, until after you received a green card....'

I've been doing research and it looks like I can confidently

Hi Jen Marie- I've been doing research and it looks like I can confidently be part of an LLC in the US as long as I do not do any kind of work. An american citizen is inviting me to be an investor in a brand new LLC. He would be the manager and do all the work. I need to have full assurance that it is 100% legal that I can be a member of this llc. As I mentioned before, my current status is H1B and my employer is in the process of sponsoring me for a green card. I do not want that this creates any conflict with my current migration status or put my green card process in jeopardy. Is there any official website or any part of the law where it is stated that I can legally be a member of an llc? I'm thinking on possible future interviews with a US consul or representative as part of my green card process and If they ask me the question, do you own or are you part of any business in the usa? I have the law with me and confidently say yes I am part of an llc as an investor without creating any red flags.please advise.thanks
