I'm in a process of divorce. I've been married years. We

Hi, I'm in a process of divorce. I've been married for 14 years. We have 2 kids, 14 and 7 years old. We have an issue, we disagree. We have one asset, a house. Situation looks like this. We purchased the property 11 years ago. We purchased together with his parents. Parents payed and moved in 1 year earlier, we were still trying to sell Denver house we lived in as a married couple for 4 years. Once we sold the house in Denver, a year later we paid for the house in Elbert with the money that came from selling Denver house. There are two houses on the 45 acres in Elbert Colorado. We paid 150.000 in cash, and parents in law paid same amount, 150.000. Together was 300.000. Since we could not divide this property easily, Parents in law's names are ***** ***** title, my husband and I are not on the title. We signed an agreement between each other, a contract agreement that says we own half of the property and we paid half, 150.000, then we signed both the paper. This paper is with parents in law and the copy is with husband. I do not have one. When I requested it they did not wanted to give it to me. I moved out a year ago, I'm renting now. He lives in the house with morgage free. We are in process of divorce. Went to mediation. He is saying that he does not own a house so he I do not have a right to any money from the house. My question is do I have a right as a wife for 14 years to fair amount of equity, even we are both not on the title. Also husband paid for the Elbert house with the money that came from the sold house in Denver which was bought by him before the marriage. What is my right? Is it really complicated case?

After two failed attempts to settle at our settlement

Hi. After two failed attempts to settle at our settlement conferences, my wife's lawyer is taking this divorce case to trial for only Spousal Support. Everything else has been agreed on and stipulated. Her lawyer has already reached the maximum interrogatories back during discovery a few months ago. With this going to trial, does the discovery reset? Meaning, can he now seek another 35 interrogatory questions/demands?

He is concern that she may have ta***** *****fe insurance out on him and wants to ensure no such life insurance policy is active upon their divorce

Lucy I have attached the clauses I am concerned with. My ex

Hi Lucy I have attached the clauses I am concerned with. My ex site not listing the property at a reasonable price or marketing it. In the divorce clause 14.f it requires that I have not put the property on the market for 6 months after he states and moves out.?i had put it on the market and listed it as well as advertised it with several peers ant sites. ( I had not social meda marketed it) I waited to do that until I had painted multiple rooms which needed painting snd 'decorating) With that said my position is that it was already on the market so his evoking the clause is incorrect, not applicable. That said I am including an email in paragraph 2 I made a statement which he may be planning to use against me. What do I do? I included his complaint see 4 14fii of the divorce decree and the email see paragraph 2

My ex is taking me back to court . In addition to this he

My ex is taking me back to court for contempt. In addition to this he has made a point to claim I am not fairly marketing the property. I feel this is his only reason for making his claim. We are at the point of discovery. He asked for a schedule the judge has not approved his schedule. She ordered a hearing to bring forward, and made no further order. How do I find out who he is bringing as his witness to prove Zi am not marketing the property correctly and how do I find out what that person will say?
