I live in the state of. I'm a 36 year old female and I have

Hello,I live in the state of Virginia. I'm a 36 year old female and I have been married 16 years. My husband and I have been having marital problems for a long time. Well my question is before I consult with a lawyer here. Is there a law that protects a spouse whose spouse contacts their employer through email telling them personal matters that doesn't concern them? My husband done this today and it was brought to my attention. I would like to know if there is anything I can do to about this as it can or could possibly hurt my reputation or cause job loss at my job as a separation will probably be happening soon. Thank you.

I am in the middle of divorce proceedings and have a

I am in the middle of divorce proceedings and have a question on community property. My husband and I are applying for a mortgage and I just found out that we have a very high income-to-debt ratio. My husband has run up around $90K in credit card debt and mine is much lower. The divorce should be final in 4-5 months but what happens to the community property? Will I be liable for his credit card debt at that time?

I have been divorced since October 2001. My daughter was

Hi, I have been divorced since October 2001. My daughter was only two years old at the time so I chose to retain my married name. Now I want to switch back to my maiden name. I've been thinking about it for a number of years. What piece of paper do I need to obtain to show to DMV, and mail to those who require proof of my new name, etc., that proves I have reverted to my maiden name? My divorce decree indicates my decision at the time to NOT revert to my maiden name. As an aside, I still have my original social security card with my maiden name - can I just go back to using that one? My driver's license happens to be up for renewal this year in September so I thought this is as good a time as any to get this done.

For attorney's practicing in CA: My wife and i living

For attorney's practicing in CA:My wife and i living separately for 2+ years, after 10 years of marriage , one kid (stays 4 days with me)... i earn 5 times my wife's salary(25k), and right now i pay her 2k every month (nothing legal...just goodwill) + all costs related to kid.I am planning to file divorce soon.- we have 2 cars, one fairly new ($18K current value -wife driving) one very old ($1.5 k value-im driving). I told my wife that if you plan to keep driving the new car, then i need to replace the old car with a new one quickly....and she consented (chat record available).- Should i buy the new car (bank loan) now? will that then be considered in community asset and debt calculation during divorce?- Is it legal for her to dispute this loan saying its close to divorce etc.?- If i don't buy the car now, and file divorce first. Then can she legally have better chance of retaining the higher value asset on the ground that she is driving it?In that case am i courting a loss, just by being nice and letting her drive the higher value car?- Also, if i pay money overseas to support my parents...will that go against me when filing divorce and dividing community cash? (Note: i had been sending some money time to time for entire term of my marriage and even before) .- Till i file divorce.... do i must have to file tax together or individual filing is possible?

i obtained an injunction for protection(temporary until court hearing). the basis for the order was stalking which comes under dating violence per the protection order. a hearing was held on 8/29/16. i did not have an attorney, the respondent did. during the proceedings i used the term stalking and was told by the judge that "you can't use the term stalking as that is a criminal offence". i was in civil court in polk county, florida and want to know if the term stalking cannot be used even if it is what my case was based on?

I recently had mediation with the mother of my children, and

I recently had mediation with the mother of my children, and i walked out feeling like i am getting my time with my children taken away from me. I currently have Joint legal custody, and i have Primary physical custody, these orders were set in 2014. few months after hearing mother had to move out of state because she had no place to live so she moved in with a friend for a year, so i filed to modify current orders because she was not around that i have sole legal and physical custody of children which was granted to me, but once she moves back orders from 2014 would be reinstated. Hows is that fair when shes lived out there for a year, and children are then set on a new schedule because of her. since I have known her shes always had an issue with stability, been kicked out of relatives homes (till this day still moving from place to place) had no place to stay and no transportation. She moved back a year later from out of state, Orders are obviously reinstated, but when she moved back she told me that she wanted to avoid the courts and that shell get to spend time with the girls when she is not working, I had a schedule the children were use to, which was she would only have time with the children on the alternate weekends if she wasn't working, children had school from 8am to 2pm then an after school program from 2pm to 6pm, and while mother was out of state i had enrolled the children in gymnastics on every Saturday so they could have their mind off on why they were not seeing their mother. So we went back to court last week because she wanted more time with children which refers to orders from 2014, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm to 730pm.. and Friday Saturday and Sunday 5pm... which i just want to keep alternate weekends from Saturday at 11am to Sunday 8pm. I need help keeping that schedule because if she has time during the week during school season then it will reflect on children's academic performance homework wise, and if she takes Saturdays than that will take away from their gymnastics (again i dont rely on her, again because she has always had issue with stability)
