I am filing for divorce. I put on the paperwork

I am filing for divorce. I put on the paperwork irreconcilable differences because we live in CA so I know its a no fault state. I also put I want full legal and physical custody of my two children (age 3.5 and 5 months) and no mandatory visitation. I also put $1600 child support total. My spouse (husband) is the one who wanted to divorce and also has stated that he was okay with all of this. I just want to make sure I am filling the paperwork out correctly to have this outcome achieved. A little back story, my spouse has a drinking, drug, and sex addictions. He has also been to prison for 3 months during our marriage which he now has a felony. He is the one who doesn't want to try in this marriage anymore and I am perfectly okay with that because of his problem. I am trying to do what is best for the children, myself, and our future.I want this to be as quick and easy as possible. please help guide me

I appealed a ruling by a family court - the family court

i appealed a ruling by a family court - the family court made a ruling that went outside of the child support guidelines and tried to say that i was intentionally underemployed- which i am not. This has been tyranny quite frankly and to add insult to injury at the onset of the divorce i lost my job due to the actions of my ex- ( she took my name off of a cell phone account for work and turned my phone off resulting in a loss of my regional manager position- she was held in contempt over a year and a half later) The court has been completely incompetent and has allowed insanity to rule through incompetence more than a structured thought.question: So what i would like to know is that while i am appealing what is my requirement for child support in the meantime? I have a child support ruling that i have been trying to maintain-please note that i want to be in my children's lives however my ex has made a effort to keep them away from me through false allegations ( i proved that she and her attorney committed purjury but nothing was done - now i am considering going to the criminal courts and to the bar to see if i can get help for them to hold someone accountable) - it seems to me a very dangerous place where it seems pretty apparent that there is a bias and a lack of interest to hold one party accountable ( the judge literally forgot about a hearing she was to have on 4 contempt items and basically did not hear them after she agreed and made a date for them last year- the judge also was presented with proof that there was embezzlement of funds yet she said she wanted to close the case because it was time to go home- to add humor to this my ex is a CPA. - the custody evaluation could not find anything wrong with me so they required that i get tested 2 additional times ( which yeilded nothing-) and my ex only answered 1/2 of the questions and where they said she was the worst they had seen in 17 years- I am an educated loving man, literally living in a bizzaro world where i believe i have fallen into a banana republic. ---

My daughter has two children, one mentally ill, recently

My daughter has two children, one mentally ill, recently released from hospital. He's 13. My daughter's ex husband has been, more or less, unemployed. He now has a job, however, while telling my daughter the "news" he didn't mention that he would be paid based on commission. In the past eight weeks, he has sent her less than $100. Hospital bills are mounting and my daughter has a good job, she's barely making ends meet. Can a judge compel him to find more lucrative employment, and/all give her a set amount of funds each month not based on income? He is remarried, has a son, but his wife has been supporting him for years without looking for a job. The last order filed with the court he was to supply her with weekly updates re seeking employment.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: She lives in Joliet, Il, Will CountyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: She hasn't been to court for several years. She had been in contact with Will County child support court, but because he found a job, she dropped the matter.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I am assisting a friend in a divorce proceeding in the state

I am assisting a friend in a divorce proceeding in the state of New Jersey. We have a final marital settlement agreement, but are questioning the advice on a number of points. I would like to post the agreement and have it reviewed with any concerns itemized. The actual dollar amount for the alimony, child support, and equitable distribution is not under question, nor does this include any review of other information -- purely an analysis of the clauses of the agreement and if any changes should be made in the concepts, or if anything is outright missing.

I have reason to believe that my son is not my biological

I have reason to believe that my son is not my biological child, and that the mother cheated on me while we were married. How do I prove parentage? Would I be reimbursed for the child support that I have paid if he is proven not to be mine?
