I live in Texas. My ex-husband lives in California and has primary custody of our now 15-year old son.My son and two of our grandchildren were just on vacation with us. When I could not find my usb drive that was in my computer, I asked the grandchildren if they had seen it (my son flew home last Sunday). They said my son had taken the usb and put it in his backpack. Now my ex-husband has copies of off my documents. He has a history of embezzling from me and "legally extortion - pro per vs. llc". He is constantly looking for money from me. Is there anything I can do at this point regarding this theft of information?

What is the legal procedure in a motion hearing for a

What is the legal procedure in a motion hearing for a continuance for a divorce case? I'm currently pro se and am asking for a continuance for the final trial in the divorce case because of my attorney terminating our relationship based on me being hospitalized for several weeks due to mental health reasons, then I cannot afford the retainer for a new attorney without time to save up and I was hospitalized for several weeks on different occasions in the last six months making it nearly impossible to either represent myself or find another attorney. I've consulted with several attorneys and the retainer is way too costly to afford prior to the scheduled trial date of Sept. 28 and 29. I need to know if opposing counsel can request or subpoena information such as medical records or bank account statements prior to the hearing. I also need to know if the hearing is just me and opposing counsel presenting my reasons for the motion and his reasons he disagrees with a continuance or if witnesses may be present at the hearing. This is set on the motions docket which means it can be heard in 20 minutes or less. Opposing counsel agreed that it was enough time to hear the case. This is in Loudoun County, Va. Circuit court and the clerk's office is unable to give me any specific information.

My wife purchased a home prior to marriage in 2011. the agreement was I pay for the wedding, and later we would buy a house together, or add me to the title. We both shared paying the mortgage for about six months. A year later we refi and then again in September of 2014. At that time I was put on what I believe was the trust deed not the title. She filed for divorce in November 2015. In California law, once I was put on the deed either trust or title... does the property become community property? Am I entitled to some equity?

My fiancé and I were at court yesterday because her ex sued

Hi! My fiancé and I were at court yesterday because her ex sued him to modify the child custody agreement that they settled 5years ago. My fiancé has primary physical custody and they have joint legal custody. She sued him that the number visitation days she's getting is over 40% and wants joint physical custody. During the hearing the judge allowed them to negotiate. My fiancé went ahead and waived the child support but we only got 9hrs a week back when they child is at school (no use for us). We're unhappy with everything and being in court yesterday was nerve-racking. Now we're thinking that we should have fought it or got a lil bit more for waiving child support. I don't if it matters but the judge made them swear not to go back to court again or the person who files a motion will pay attorney fees. The new agreement is still currently being prepared and we should be receiving it soon to be reviewed and signed. Is there anything that we can do to make other changes that benefit us other than the 9hrs a week that the child is in school? We're afraid that letting our attorney know about this will just rack up our attorney fees. Every time our attorney reads an email or talks to us on the phone pretty much increases the bill.

Can I combine a Response to a Motion for Contempt, with a Motion to Strike?

Other parts of her Motion should be responded to however.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No, just that question on whether or not a Motion can be combined with a Response.
