I remarried 1 year after my wive passed away in 2013. This marriage has gone bad. I have tried to talk with my wife but she consistantly refuses to come up with any ways we might try to help the marriage. I have not been unfaithful. Maybe twice I did physically grab her when I was upset. I have never hit her. We are hardly intimate anymore . It very hard for me to try to please her as she seem impossible to deal with. I might add that she has been divorced for 20 year before we married.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FlordiaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I own my home all by myself and many other things.

This is real estate/divorce related. My spouse and I married

This is real estate/divorce related. My spouse and I married in 1995. The home we lived in from 1995-1998 was owned by his parents. They quick deeded it to him in 1998. I then got my name in the title. We purchased another home and the previous became a rental. Now, we're divorcing. Spouse is claiming a separate property credit for its worth at time of quick deed. I understand that. However, I believe I should receive partial credit for the 3 years I contributed to the mortgage before it was deeded to my spouse. We both worked and contrubuted. My spouse and his divorce attorney says this is rent to his parents and I can't receive credit. Yet, I believe we made payments to the bank, not his parents. Do I have a legitimate claim to half the mortgage payments for those three years? My divorce atty says he doesn't know the answer.

Colorado divorce case Arapahoe County. I am married 24

Colorado divorce case Arapahoe County. I am married 24 years. My wife filed for divorce. The kids are on their own. She moved out on 10-7 with what she wanted and I received papers on 10-9. She has an attorney. I need to provide asses info in a few days.My questions are:1. My house was owns before we were married. It was paid in full title has never changed. There were never any loans on it. Can she trey to make a claim on the appreciation. I understand anything owned in Colorado before you were married is not community property.2. She has made some big purchases since leaving. Do those become community property to be provided? They were on a credit card that I pay. She has other cards of her own.3. Because the auto-pay on the checking account where only I sign checks (the account was established in 1974 - long before we were married, had me concerned about payments that I am not aware of. I changed the account number and relocated the funds (still keeping the old one open for now.) She claims I broke the law as outlined in the papers served on me for doing so. Is that correct? How much trouble can I be in for it?4. I want to change my will to my two grown kids. She says I cannot do so without violating the papers served on me about any changes in accounts or assets. Is that correct?5. She never worked or contributed financially (read a well-planned gold digger.) Am I really exposed for 50% of everything including IRA and 401K? I am 67 she is 59. I am still working. Can they force me not to retire? Since divorce laws are slanted toward the woman, I feel I need to ask. If I do, does she pay me alimony?6. Any idea of the wait time in Arapahoe County for a contested divorce trial?Thank you.

On This Order It says "This CAUSE came before the

On This Order It says "This CAUSE came before the undersigned judge upon Plaintiff's claim for Equitable Distribution of his military retirement benefits." Was my ED case a "cause" and should this not say it was a claim for overall ED? I didn't bring the case to distribute just my military retirement asset. It was to get fair and equitable split of everything we owned. Was this another slight of hand by her attorney? I still say the judge should not have let my adversary right up his court order.
