I have two children with my ex-boyfriend. We have never live

I have two children with my ex-boyfriend . We have never live together and I have full physical custody of them both . He signed a stipulation in his divorce papers that reads " his other children are not allowed to be around myself or our two little children until he has done everything possible to get an annulment and their therapist approves it" it was a very messy and complicated divorce but long story short..... my question is if I were to die , my little children I have with him would not automatically be turned over to him because of the stipulation .....? Would he still have to make sure he had an annullment because of the divorce decree?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MnJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: His divorce decree is finalized yes His divorce decree is finalized yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: But he has not started an annulment process

I'm legally separated and when my husband and me were

I'm legally separated and when my husband and me were together, he opened up a Paypal Credit account in his name only. He had his checking account with my name on it and I had my checking account with his name on it. Payments were paid out of both accounts. When I left I just keep paying on the account out of the kindness of my heart. Well the account has gotten behind and I've been unable to pay the monthly amount due each month but I would send like $10 to $150 whichever I could afford that month. Anyway, now he is acting like he knows nothing about this account and says he is going to get me for fraud. Can he do that? Our separation papers that have been filed state that I'm responsible for my debt and he is responsible for his debt.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Like what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.. I think that's it
