This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in. My

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?

I have a divorce decree in Pennsylvania. I recently

I have a divorce decree in Pennsylvania. I recently attempted to register to get remarried in Ireland. The civil servant reviewing the case indicated I could not get remarried till I had a final divorce decree. The divorce decree I have, issued in the court of common pleas of Allegheny county is, I believe, final in that it my ex wife and I are divorced it reads:Decree in divorce, the date, the court having received this case, Agreement incorporated but not merged in this decree.Any existing spousal support order shall hereafter be deemed an order for alimony Pendente Lite if any economic claims remain pending and it si decreed that the Plaintiff Robert McDunn (me) is divorced and separated from the bonds of matrimony between himself and the defendant. The court hereby retains jurisdiction of any claims raised by this action for which a final order has not been entered.I need to understand if first, the decree is final and allows me to get remarried in Pennsylvania, and second, how to document this fact for the Irish civil service to provide proof of my ability to marry.

My parents have been married for nearly 25 years. He was

My parents have been married for nearly 25 years. He was active duty for 20 of those years and since 2012 has held a high security clearance working as a civilian for the military. I am the second oldest of 5, ages 23, 19, 13, 10, and 7, the two youngest of which are autistic. My mother never got her degree from college and has been a stay at home mom during this time. It has recently come to light that he had been having an affair with a woman since 2012. He claimed this ended when he received a job as a civilian at a military base oversees in January of this year (Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany), he moved her and the three younger children from Florida, purchased their first house, but recently went back to her. Throughout the past several weeks, however, it has come to light that he had not been happy since the first child was born 23 years ago and the only reason he never left was because he never found anyone good enough. He claims this woman was the only woman, but he's been for so long it's hard to tell. My mother wants to leave him, but has no money to do so and to my understanding he would lose his job and possibly retirement if this comes out. He says he couldn't afford a lawyer, but we have also recently discovered he has a secret bank account with over $100,000 without her in the account. He also refused to give my mother access to any other of his secret accounts as he has spent more than he'll admit on women for an unknown amount of time.She wants to leave him, but he needs his job to pay for all of the children's tuition. He said if they learned of the cheating, he'd lose his high security clearance and chances of getting another high paying job. Myself, 19 and my older brother, 23, are both in college in Texas and there's little I can do.I would just like to know, taking military law into consideration, and the things he has done, what are my mother's options?Also, my father changed his residency to Texas for my school purposes, but my mother didn't get around to it and still is a Florida resident. Would it make a divorce easier if she changed her residency?

My husband is a stay at home dad, for the past 5 years. He

My husband is a stay at home dad, for the past 5 years. He home schools the oldest two. We have 4 children together. I work fulltime. I left him about 6 weeks ago. I'm giving him child support for taking care of the kids through the week and I get them on the weekend. He has no desire to get a job to take care of himself. We would both like a dissolution rather then divorce. The problem is that the kids are missing their milestones, and he's lax on hygiene. How do I make sure the money I'm giving him goes to the kids, rather than him? He still pays his bills, yet he doesn't have to work. I'm currently staying with my mom. He has grounds for divorce based on adultery, although we both agreed on an open marriage ahead of time; that was over a year ago. What should I do?
