Thank you. This concerns divorce and separate property. Mr and Mrs X married in 2007. Mr X retired in 2012, and received a lump sum of $550,000 for his 40 years' service in his job. In 2013 he sold a property he owned as his alone, and gained $345,000. These monies provided the basis for purchasing a home for $970,000, now valued at 1.5million. How does one work out what is community and what separate property? Thanks you so much.

I need help as soon as possible. We live in SC. My

Hi. I need help as soon as possible. We live in SC. My boyfriend's (ex)wife left him and their children about 2 1/2 years ago. They owned two houses and she moved to the other one. Shortly after, she filed for divorce. After the one year period was over, there were still unanswered business valuation questions, so the attorneys filed for an extension of time. In January of this year, she decided to act somewhat civil and they decided they could mediate the division of property and be finished, so they let go of their attorneys. Now- after 6 months of mediation- he finally received the agreement she wants him to sign and her demands are beyond anything he can do. I moved in with him on May 1, and she had a live in partner as well. He broke up with her and moved out, so she has returned to the same crazy state of mind that she was in before. She drinks two bottles of wine daily, takes a ton of medications, and is a narcissist. She has now threatened that if my boyfriend doesn't sign the agreement she wants signed by today, that she is moving back in to his home. Her name is ***** ***** the mortgage, along with my boyfriend's name, however, she left voluntarily a very long time ago and has not paid one cent towards the maintenance, upkeep, mortgage, utilities, insurance, taxes, or anything else. Her daughter can't stand her, doesn't visit her, and is having anxiety about her trying to come back here. Can she legally just move back in to a home that she deserted? Can she kick me out if my boyfriend wants me here? Do we have any legal protection at all on this?
