California law. Bought home in Dec. 2012 (mortgage). Got

California law. Bought home in Dec. 2012 (mortgage). Got married on Oct. 2013. Separated on Feb 2015, she went up north with family. I was helping her make ends meet each month. She came back to live with me on August 2016. Bad Idea. I was thinking of fixing her immigration papers (I figure I want her to work), and then maybe filing for divorce, but I want to know exposure.I make decent money. Bi weekly I bring home about $2350 net after deductions (taxes, medical insurance for the family, 401K that just started).I know I made a mistake by bringing her back, but I figure since she is here I might help her out. But I want to know exposure. My main concern is:1) Can I keep my house?2) Temporary spousal support while we are going through divorce (I don't think I can afford it).3) Alimony?She has a kid. It is not mine. (The kid was already born by the time we got married).

I'm currently awaiting a criminal trial. My husband claims

I'm currently awaiting a criminal trial. My husband claims to have filed for a divorce while I was in jail, but I have not seen any papers. Neither has my attorney heard anything of it. My husband says that the DA told him the divorce can't be finalized until after my trial. Can the state really do that? Or is he just bluffing?

My ex wife, who is mentally ill, is trying to evict my 19

My ex wife, who is mentally ill, is trying to evict my 19 year old daughter who has nowhere to go and is a full time, dependent College student. She has no legitimate reason to throw her out and is supposed to support and help her until she is 21. Can my daughter fight the eviction being as she's not a tenant? Will the courts even enforce an eviction case like this? The mother is still the legal custodial parent and my daughter is not a renter or a tenant?

So if I file my tax with my slary, my tax would be lower than he paid.If we refile tax as joint, I have to pay about $5000 more than filing only with my income. If he finds out about that in the future,do I have to pay him back that amount?
