My friend's wife insisted they get married in Jamaica

my friend's wife insisted they get married in Jamaica when their both from Missouri. Missouri has laws that revoke life insurance upon divorce but he would like to know, does the fact he was married in Jamaica make a difference or will the fact he was married in Jamaica prevent Missouri laws from revoking life insurance he may not know about. He is concern that she may have ta***** *****fe insurance out on him and wants to ensure no such life insurance policy is active upon their divorce

Pearl, I'm Ivy. Are you familiar with CA divorce law and

Hi Pearl, I'm Ivy. Are you familiar with CA divorce law and real estate law? I was married in 1995, we purchased a home in 2007. My name is ***** ***** the title. We divorced in 2010, he filed stating "no property to split". I signed under duress. I attempted to retain a lawyer that said my statute of limitations had lapsed. That didn't make sense to me. I was under the impression with real estate law I have 10yrs from the divorce to petition. I believe once he found out my ex was a state patrolman he decided not to help me any further. What are my rights?JA: No, just the one happy marriage. OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Are you a real person or is this some generated reply? I just said I consulted a lawyer.JA: I'm an assistant to the Family Lawyer. I work with them to help customers like you.Customer: I already mentioned I had previously consulted with a lawyer. I also stated what his reply was. I am confused by your response.JA: Is there anything else the Family Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: He is remarried, but had the affair before we were divorced.JA: OK. Got it.

Question...may require someone faikiawith nj divorce law...I

Question...may require someone faikiawith nj divorce law...I have been divorced 16 years...I have residential custody of my son. I our divorce it was written that we would alternate claiming him as a dependent. ..because as my ex remided me aai tight it wouldn't be fair otherwise. Now according to the irs Web site, my son because I have residential,custody and he sleeps at our home more then 6 months out of the year I am entitled to the deduction. Now because I am afraid of my ex I have always gone along with this swap of every other year but never filed the form or gave him anything dated each year he has taken him stating it was ok..so he tells me tonight the divorce supercedes irs law is that accurate?

I need an Attorney very familiar with DC divorce law and use

I need an Attorney very familiar with DC divorce law and use of a Legal Guardianship. Q: Can I use my court-awarded Guardianship (Fairfax Courthouse) --to represent my Mother in last-stage Alzheimer's (who resides in a secured community, Springfield, VA)-- in filing a totally uncontested divorce in Washington, DC, under DC's Pro-se "no-fault divorce" program on my Father (a DC resident who has been legally-separated from my mother 33 years)? The incompetent spouse would benefit medically and financially by removing the competent spouse from her imminent and long-term interests. The competent spouse (who's only attachment has been his FEP Fed Health insurance at her insistence back in 1983) would benefit by being independent and able to make personal decisions with his "domestic partner" of 22 years. To be clear, the spouses/parents have zero contact but we all concur on the need for divorce.
