My wife MAY BE filing for divorce in New Jersey. I moved to

My wife MAY BE filing for divorce in New Jersey. I moved to Dallas in June 2016 and she was planning to move here with our 1 yr old baby but things have turned south. She filed a TRO against me on Feb 2nd after coming back from India where she was for 2 months. I bought a house here which is under construction and delivery scheduled in April 2017. I already have money invested as part of downpayment and the 20% i have kept in bank (after selling our house in Jersey). She did not contribute a penny for this house or the earlier house in Jersey. But what should i do, forget about the house and back out leaving 38K on the table or I can still own the house? Second, she was a co-signee on the loan but loan was entirely on my name because of her bad credit score, so what happens with loan? Can i take her out and re-do paperwork with just me on the loan? How do Texas laws work with regards ***** ***** property?

I have been middle of divorce in CA about a year now. My

I have been middle of divorce in CA about a year now . My husband is business owner and he kept hiding his income. My attorney cost is already over $100k and running out of my money. I and my attorney had to file motion to compel for discovery and spending more for CPA to discover his true income for TEMPORARY support. The judge is already aware that and she already told us that she is going to order sanctions and order him to pay my attorney fee, but question is how much? I thought he has to pay ALL of the cost for me to discover his lies.... Is it true? My attorney said it will be only a partial. If that's the case, my only choice is to settle with nothing, no alimony, no community assets.

NJ DIVORCE ATTORNEY QUESTION. I have been married 25 years.

NJ DIVORCE ATTORNEY QUESTION.I have been married 25 years. I'm 50 yrs old and my wife is 47. My children are 20,19, and 16. The 20 and 19 year old are in college, 19 yr old living at school, 20 yr old at home, 16 yr old, 10th grade. After working since I was 18 and the last 20 with the same company, in insurance sales, and making 100k plus average for the last 10, I became permanently disabled in 2012 and my only income has been SSDI. I receive $2500 monthly and my spouse $1100.1.) if divorced does my wife's SSDI payment get affected, she is only receiving the benefit due to my disability. If not till what age does she collect, assuming she does not remarry.2.) At my kids ages, is there any issue regarding custody. The 16 year old wants to move with me. Can she legally make that decision. Will either of us be required to pay child support? I am assuming the other 2 do not make a difference since the are adults or does their status as students change that? Is there any issue with child support with them? Is each spouse responsible for half of college tuition?3.) My wife's income is all "under the table" and not claimed on taxes. I have asked her to document the money she is making because it should be part of any financial equation, assuming we can make a agreement outside of hiring attorneys should that be approached as regular income and part of any divorce settlement? I assume, if we have to hire attorneys, the attorneys have no right to report the unclaimed income to IRS due to attorney client privilege?3.) I am in the middle of a lawsuit with my long term disability carrier due to them cutting off my payments and denying to continue my claim after 2 years. The policy allows coverage to age 65. If the claim is settled after the divorce is finalized is my wife entitled to any portion of the proceeds? If I receive a settlement, it should be a lump sum.4.) We own, with mortgages, our primary home and a summer home, also with a mortgage. I will have to leave the primary but assume we are splitting time at the seasonal. What are my obligations to each?I understand these questions are case by case but if you can give me the precedents in each case test will be great. I just want an idea. We have agreed to work these things out on our own, but Having an idea of how these things usually turn out will help me for informational purposes. I appreciate you time and help. I will not hold you to any of your answers, I understand any solid answers would need a total review of our situation.Thank you, ***** *****

My same sex wife purchased a home after out marriage &

My same sex wife purchased a home after out marriage & signed as "a single woman" which she was not. Now we're facing a divorce. I had left my home & all of our possessions & furniture because she wanted to keep her own or we purchased new. Now, 9 months later after losing everything, we're divorcing. Am I entitled to anything?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: UtahJA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The person I married was my children's therapist for several years. I was very sick, had several surgeries, was on a picc line & many medications. As a "therapist" she began hanging around our house during non-therapeutic times. She invited herself for thanksgiving & our family couldn't understand why she was always showing up at our house. On thanksgiving evening, she told me she was in live with me. SHOCK!! She pursued a relationship with me even tho she continued to see my children as a therapist for a month afterward. She informed me she was leaving her husband because she had to be with me. She wanted to adopt my 5 children. She sold her house & moved into mine. We were married as soon as her expedited divorce was final. She's been able to get 3 expedited divorces because she lies about why she needs them & is friends with the commissioner. We were married on January 9th. Bathe purchased a home for our large family in mid February but signed the papers as an "unmarried woman". My children & I had to move from our home, leave behind ALL of our possessions, furniture, beds, ect.. Now she wants a divorce & my 5!children are penniless & have no where to go. Do I have any rights?

My spouse has filed. We were living together in Raleigh, NC,

My spouse has filed for divorce. We were living together in Raleigh, NC, where he currently resides and where the divorce has been filed. I currently live in my native home of Milwaukee, WI.As of now, I have received a Separation Agreement and Distribution of Property Agreement.He has an attorney; I do not as I cannot afford one. My husband has told me I am entitled to nothing except my own property due to the fact that I had an affair and the laws relating to that issue in the state of North Carolina. Is this true?I am wondering what options there are for me and if there are any free or low cost legal services available? Or perhaps any attorneys who will sit down for one session of legal advice at a reasonable rate?
