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.

I have been pro se in my equitable distribution case. I have lost the battle to keep my former spouse from getting the SBF benefits from my military retirement. Her attorney has written out the court order with language that states that both parties were in "voluntary" agreement that she would be awarded this. I was never in voluntary agreement because I wished to place my new wife as my survivor when I die--not an ex-spouse. Also the language says it was "just and necessary." I also disagree that it was just. If I thought it was just I would not have fought it. Her attorneys have sent this court order document for me to look at. Can I object to this voluntary and just language, or do I have no choice in the matter? Could this have consequences if I need to appeal this case later? The judge has not made the final ruling yet on other aspects ofd the case. Thank you

Sure thing... I want a divorce from my husband, we have not lived together in for about 28 years, children are grown. I was wondering if it is best to file for divorce in CA where I live, or in NY where we were married and where he still lives.

My wife and I had our own bank accounts for the most part of
My wife and I had our own bank accounts for the most part of our 27 yr marriage, dividing the household expenses as a percentage of our incomes. We divided the expenses of our 4 kids, where she was responsible for the 2 girls and I was for the two boys. She is a spender and I am a saver. She has worked part time for the most part of our marriage but for the last 7 years she has been working full time. I want a divorce or legal separation in a year or 2 and I do not want to forgo half of my savings upon divorce. My savings are about 200k, including 401k and Roth ira, where as hers is about 20k. Is there a legal way for me to not to forfeit to her half of my money in my accounts, retirement and personal when we divorce?
Can I get a legal separation and live in the same house if
Can I get a legal separation and live in the same house if my spouse agrees to the separation. Financially, both of us cannot afford to live separately. Also, if we get a divorce, what happens to my retirement funds. Do I have to eliminate everything and give him half?

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in Virginia. My husband and I are divorcing after 23 years. He has fully supported me financially for the entire marriage. I receive only 600.00 per month from Social Security. He receives approximately 1,500.00 from Social Security and about 1,000.00 from military retirement. He will also receive an inheritance from his mother when she dies (She is now 90 years old). He wants to have an uncontested divorce and give me nothing. I am a senior citizen and past working age. Am I entitled to receive any portion of his income and inheritance? What are my rights?
Want to divorce abusive, alcoholic spouse; have questions about it
I stay in NJ. My husband has anger issues. We have two minor children. He is verbally abusive, has a recurrent alcohol problem (twice witnessed when the children were in his care). I am the breadwinner. I want a divorce, but need to strategize, since he seems like he is ready to "take me to the cleaners." I don't care about the material things as much as custody of the children.We went to counseling for a while. Being the "forgiving wife," I have never filed anything. But I have emails with his admission, and a video of him "plastered" a few years ago.My net worth is not negligible. My husband refuses to leave the home, even though tensions seem to be escalating. Throughout our ENTIRE marriage, i.e. 8.5 years, the entire income was mine. His pretext being it was difficult to find a job. He is now a Permanent Resident through me; our relationship was lived between Europe, Africa, Canada and the US until he got his papers a year ago. I am at a point where I really would rather not share the same space as him. Thank you.
