I'm going through an amicable divorce at present. there's no

I'm going through an amicable divorce at present. there's no alimony/child support etc. each just goes our own separate ways. But, I just learned that the wife has been texting/phone calls and probably everything else while I was still living in the house. I moved out in Dec. But, about 12 years ago, I was in a similar situation, calling/texting an ex. out of state. is there a way she can bring this up, if I were to go after her now for adultry?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: SCJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, legal separation papers. One thing in that is that it does state that each can act as "unmarried" adults. But, that was filed/heard before a judge in Dec. These phone calls, texts, meeting occurred starting at the end of October of 2016JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. I'm not rep. by a lawyer at present as i thought everything was fine, although I suspected something going on. I now have the phone bill(s) proving my allegations. I spent 25 plus years with her. Her Dad recently died and I'm sure left her with alot of $$. I just feel I'm entitled to some of that, maybe not 50%. She makes more than I , about 10 to 12K more. I had to move out sooner than what was originally agreed in June 2017, which cost me more $$, distress, etc. I wouldn't have an issue if she met some guy after I moved out 12/1, but it does hit below the belt while I'm still in the house. Yes, I dd same in 2004. OH, also, we never had sex after that incident. We tried, but she accused me of having an STD on 2 occassions, which was not true. She denies ever say this.

2nd opinion please: My granddaughter found out her estranged

2nd opinion please:My granddaughter found out her estranged husband filed a public notice in newspaper in Tennessee (she is in California) for divorce. She was given 30 days to respond to the courts and the atty. She has two weeks to file a defense. She is not in opposition of the divorce, but the facts he presented in grounds for divorce through his atty. are not accurate.1. He states there was never a child in the marriage. There was a child and she was killed in car accident when my ex-husband, my granddaughter and baby were traveling from Washington to Calif. for baby 3rd birthday. Her husband was under court ordered restraining order from seeing them due to spousal abuse at the time. We had to agree to lessen the restraining order so he could travel under the watch of military to California to accompany Brianna to California for funeral once she and grandfather where released from hospital. He never attended any criminal court trials against the driver of which there were 2. Only time he came back to California was when settlement check for him in loss of child was ready and I had to pay his flight/housing.2. He claims malicious desertion or absence which is not true, despite multiple tries and another spousal abuse conviction she tried to travel to Tenn. where he was stationed in Army to see if marriage could be restored.He claimed inappropriate marital conduction, of which he is quilty of multiple times and is currently engaged to another woman while still married.3. He has filed bankruptcy and ruined her credit and she would like courts to acknowledge that she is not responsible for his debts over last three years4.. He has been receiving off base housing allowance for being married of which he was to give her and percentage of and did not send it monthly as stipulated but not enforced by military.She only makes $12 an hour and cannot afford an atty, nor travel to Tenn. Is there a format that should be used to respond and address the discrepancies in this document, ask courts to not hold her responsible for his debts. and should she attach the legal documents supporting her claims with it?He filed complaint for absolute divorce in the Chacery Court of Montgomery Count, Tenn at Clarksville, and published in local newspaper rather than serving claiming he did not know her where abouts which also is a lie. He also owes over $10,000 to her grandfather and I for his half of moving expenses after death of child, and for legal costs during his spousal abuse issues so he could at least remain in military until they settled issues and hopefully were able to restore marriage.There are forms on line for agreed divorces in Tennessee but nothing for filing defense with the Clerk of Court and copy to attorney, Court clerk stated there is not a particular form, just type up and have notarized. Again is there a format that could be suggested to respond as directed.Thank you

I have been married for 16 yrs. 2 years ago my husband

I have been married for 16 yrs. 2 years ago my husband completely abandoned me, financially, emotionally, physically, socially etc. We are still married and living in the same house. He took down all pictures of me, put a lock on bedroom door and makes me sleep on the couch. Whatever food or household supplies he buys he keeps locked up so I cant access. I have been diagnosed with 3 autoimmune disorders but continue to work about 30 hrs a week against medical advice. He managed the finances for our entire marriage and he worked from home while I worked 50 + hrs a week as a hospice and home health nurse.I have discovered that he has removed me from accts like our homeowners insurance.Also found concrete evidence of multiple other online and local bank accts as well as stocks and retirement accts. I have the names and some of the full acct #'S and others just the last 4 digits. But because he does everything online and keeps them passwordprotected. He has ruined my credit and I am going without medical necessities as well as necessities of daily living trying to just keep car and health insurance paid. There are other things going on that have kept me from filing for divorce at this time. Is there anything I can do to make him fulfill his responsibilities at least financially? He denies having these other financial accts. and the divorce lawyer I consulted with said it is very hard to prove those kinds of things. I have the acct names and #'S and at least one of them has my ss# ***** to it. How can I access this money that I have worked myself into poor health to make while he stashed it away secretly.
