My wife purchased a home prior to marriage in 2011. the agreement was I pay for the wedding, and later we would buy a house together, or add me to the title. We both shared paying the mortgage for about six months. A year later we refi and then again in September of 2014. At that time I was put on what I believe was the trust deed not the title. She filed for divorce in November 2015. In California law, once I was put on the deed either trust or title... does the property become community property? Am I entitled to some equity?

Should multiple contempt actions (conducted by my former spouse) be included in a single motion of contempt, or listed separately? If it can be done either way, is there an advantage to one way vs. another?

My fiancé and I were at court yesterday because her ex sued

Hi! My fiancé and I were at court yesterday because her ex sued him to modify the child custody agreement that they settled 5years ago. My fiancé has primary physical custody and they have joint legal custody. She sued him that the number visitation days she's getting is over 40% and wants joint physical custody. During the hearing the judge allowed them to negotiate. My fiancé went ahead and waived the child support but we only got 9hrs a week back when they child is at school (no use for us). We're unhappy with everything and being in court yesterday was nerve-racking. Now we're thinking that we should have fought it or got a lil bit more for waiving child support. I don't if it matters but the judge made them swear not to go back to court again or the person who files a motion will pay attorney fees. The new agreement is still currently being prepared and we should be receiving it soon to be reviewed and signed. Is there anything that we can do to make other changes that benefit us other than the 9hrs a week that the child is in school? We're afraid that letting our attorney know about this will just rack up our attorney fees. Every time our attorney reads an email or talks to us on the phone pretty much increases the bill.

Can I combine a Response to a Motion for Contempt, with a Motion to Strike? Certain declarations within my Former Wife's Motion for contempt do not assert anything, they are just wild statements (i.e. Item 4. "Former Wife made an inquiry to the Former Husband, and he seemed very suspicious and strange." Other parts of her Motion should be responded to however.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No, just that question on whether or not a Motion can be combined with a Response.

I have been divorced since 2012 and live in Nebraska. I have

I have been divorced since 2012 and live in Nebraska. I have 14 and 12 year old daughters that I am paying child support for. I've read in some places that if they stay a non-custodial parent for a certain amount of time, that it may work out that I would not need to pay child support that month. Is this correct and if so, how would that work?It would make sense to do this, since I have a significant increase in expenses when they are staying with me for an extended time and I'm still sending money away.

My daughters relationship with her fiancé has gone bad. They have a 3 month old daughter together. My daughter also has a 2 1/2 year old son. Not from this man. Our daughter lives with us along with both children. We are the grand parents. We let her fiancé move in with us as well. Now things are not good. We want him gone. He has no place of his own He could possibly go back to his parents.I feel a big child custody battle coming?, What rights does he truly have? We feel he's a flight risk! Won't allow him to take the kids from the home? I guess my question is What should we do? Lawyer up and be prepared?

We are going to have a hearing of my granddaughter this

Hi, we are going to have a hearing for custody of my granddaughter this Friday. My daughter received the witness list. She is calling all of my witness's and asking them questions. She has told a few of them that if they don't answer her questions they may not be allowed to testify at the hearing? Is this correct? And how many questions do we have to answer? How long do we need to spend on the phone? Why can't this wait until the hearing on Friday with the Judge? Please advise, thank you!
