My DH and I filed separation in 2001 after I experienced

My DH and I filed for legal separation in 2001 after I experienced alcohol fueled domestic violence on a cruise ship. I thought it would get his attention and have him treat me better. Plus, he had 2 DUIs in 2 years. We never actually parted and bought a home together in 2002. We intended to have the judgment set aside but forgot about it. Now DH is not inclined to set it aside as he has a girlfriend for 2 years. They broke up but he won't dismiss as he says I would take a chunk of his retirement. Is there any hope for me?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes. She said I am screwed.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Nothing. I'm on SSD so poor. I put $74k (my entire 401k) down as down payment. Future looks bleak.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Since he wants to protect himself, I'm thinking he is a bad life partner. I'm 65 and he is 58.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

My girlfriend is 17, and in foster care. DHS wants to continue her case until she is 21, because she doesn't make enough money to support herself alone. If I marry her, is there anything that DHS or her foster parents can do to stop it? Would either parties be able to continue to claim legal custody of her?

Familiar with Texas Law?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: 36 year old daughter has been on crystal meth for 8 years. She has a 7 year old daughter, my grandaughter. She has kept this hidden of course, but her bizarre behavior and paranoia added to finding a bag of meth in the sofa cushions recently, I know she is using. She has had 6 bad fender benders and 2 serious wrecks in the last two years, multiple tickets, and I don't know how she still has a license. I cannot prove anything, the bag was destroyed right after I got a picture of it. The apartment is filthy.JA: OK got it.
