My wife purchased a home prior to marriage in 2011. the agreement was I pay for the wedding, and later we would buy a house together, or add me to the title. We both shared paying the mortgage for about six months. A year later we refi and then again in September of 2014. At that time I was put on what I believe was the trust deed not the title. She filed for divorce in November 2015. In California law, once I was put on the deed either trust or title... does the property become community property? Am I entitled to some equity?

I am 70 year old retiree with a disability. My wife filed in

I am 70 year old retiree with a disability. My wife filed for divorce in September 2015. Through examining banking, attorney statements and other documents, I realized that there was a retirement distribution of approximately $460 per month that I never received.My wife contends that it was community property and she deposited one month into her acct. and sent me a check the other month. In the 5 yrs. that she was doing this, I never received one check nor did I know of this acct. The checks were sent to our house in Van Nuys.My retirement distribution companies tell me that they are not allowed to share where the checks were deposited because of privacy issues..I want those records so I can find out where my money was deposited and who deposited that money.Can you help me?Joe Peters

My son is 16 years old and going into 11th grade. I divorced

My son is 16 years old and going into 11th grade. I divorced my ex-husband 7 years ago and I am remarried now. My son has lived with me since my divorced and I've been receiving child support, but now he wants to live with his dad. I know legally the court system goes off my income and now my husband's income, but I am concerned, because I own a business with my husband and my husband works a full time job. In the business my husband and I own we are partners and each receive K1 from the company we own. My husband and I both received a K1 2013 for around $6000 (together $12,000), and my 2nd year 2014 K1 about $8300 (together $16600) and finally last year 2015 K1 around $8300 (together $16600). We take the K1 and add it to our joint tax return along with my husband's full time employment to create our yearly taxes. After we deduct my business mileage with the company we have a yearly loss. So here is my question:Does my husband's income with the business or his full time job have anything to do with the amount of child support I will be ordered to pay by the courts when my husband takes me back to court to stop his child support and get an order for me to pay? If I lose money every year (because it takes a few years to get a profitable business) will the court impose a minium income on me or should I just use my K1 as my income. When I calulated overnight visits with my personal K1 and my ex's net income it shows he will actually owe me child support. But I entered the $8300 as net (even though I write off my mileage) and he would still owe me child support.
