My wife's attorney is taking our divorce case to trial

Hi. My wife's attorney is taking our divorce case to trial because we cannot agree on SS, that is the only issue. In order to understand her financial position, I have requested how much sure has incurred in attorney's fees, how much she has paid-to-date and source of payment. He won't give them to me. I've been asking for over two months and our trial is Oct 4th.We have both hit our limit of interrogatories last December. However, one of my interrogatories did ask for the fees and payments which he provided the end of December.I am not looking for detailed invoicing, just fees and payments. How do I get this from him without having anymore interrogatories left? He continues to refuse to produce them saying it is an attorney-client privilege.

Curious... I have a friend who, in order to keep from

Curious... I have a friend who, in order to keep from lousing spousal support from her ex upon remarriage, has instead planned to go through a "commitment" ceremony with her current "fiance," and to then legally change her name to that of the fiance, but to not register a legal marriage. They'll be living as husband and wife with the same name, but specifically avoiding marriage so as not to lose spousal support from the ex.Is this actually a thing? That seems like a big loophole. I realize there are benefits from marriage she cannot get from the "fiance" without a legal marriage... and that a legal name change does not constitute a marriage, but this seems very sketchy to me.

I needed to ask you another question! Since she walked out

I needed to ask you another question! Since she walked out of the marital home, do I stand a good chance of keeping the home and getting custody of the kids? My wife walked out to be with a guy who is a current felon, which includes domestic violence and drugs. I do not want to risk them being around such a man. Our kids are 3, 9 and 11. I would fear for their safety. What can I do?

I own a home with my ex, never married but i left the home

I own a home with my ex, never married but i left the home because of drug use and the growing of weed and numerous other reasons like emotional and mental abuse. We've lived in the house since 2005, he convinced me to do a modification of the loan with the promise of no drugs being used, grown or sold and that his family would not stay there. None of that happened and the drugs, emotional, and physical abuse continued and even worsened so i packed my clothes and personal belongings and moved out while he was asleep. As of today he is 2 payments behind and has been since i've left and continues the drug use and the growing weed with selling it also. What can i do? I would love to fight for my home if that's possible. He doesn't have the income because he only receives social security. Please help....

Hi. In a divorce with children, if one of the parents walks out of the marriage and lives over 100 miles away, but the children remain in the marital home with the other parent, isn't it the parent of the children who left the city responsible to come and see the children until the divorce and custody is done? Thank you
