Myself and my non-registered domestic partner jointly own a

Myself and my non-registered domestic partner jointly own a home in California. My partner's son lives with us. We bought the home four years ago and this has been the living arrangements since then. He has friends around that I don't "like" and also I am not happy with what my "stepson" does around the house. If I tell my 'stepson" that he is not allowed to visit (and live in) our house and I tell his friends that they are no longer welcome at our house and he continues to live here, and they visit - is that trespassing? If so, what are the legal / civil remedies?

My wife has filed divorce papers against me just a couple

Hi,My wife has filed divorce papers against me just a couple weeks ago. I am in between jobs and I will have to represent myself. She is contesting marital property and claims that she owns part of our house. In 2010, my father bought this house that I currently reside in, with cash. He also put my name on the deed to avoid any tax ramifications if he should pass away. Well, in March 2015 he passed away. Now I own the house but I have yet to put it through probate. I know it sounds weird that I haven't done this but he lived and passed away 400 miles away from me. I was name executor of his will and was eventually sworn in as executor of his estate. It took me 7 months, driving back and forth, to settle his estate. During this time I couldn't really work. Since Sept/Oct of 2015 I came back to where I live and have been looking for work feverishly and haven't seen too many results. 5 months later my wife files divorce papers. So my question is can she claim marital property on this house when her name is ***** ***** the deed and she has never made tax payments on this property? Again, my name has been on the deed since it was bought. Thanks.

My partner and I have lived together -four years,

My partner and I have lived together for twenty-four years, 14 in New York City and ten in California. In view of the Supreme Court's ruling on same sex marriage, we are thinking of getting married. We have never filed as domestic partners, but hold certain property as joint tenant with rights of survivorship. My question is when does the application of community property begin on California? Would all of my assets earned over the twenty-four years be subject to community property or only those after the date of the marriage or something else?
