My husband and I are currently separated. He is a very sneaky, deceitful, cunning, manipulative and shady and has been threatening me financially. He has also been setting me up to make me look like the bad guy so he won't have to pay any support. In other words, I don't trust him. Would there be any way possible that I could lose my half equity in the marital home? Can he actually get away without paying any support? I am unemployed temporarily. Can a quitclaim deed be forged? And lastly, is a Marital Dissolution Agreement legally binding?

I am sending this on behalf of my daughter since I already

I am sending this on behalf of my daughter since I already had an acct setup. My daughter had been served divorce papers from her husband who lives in Florida and she has lived in Pa for the last 2.5 years. There are no assets to split up and no children involved. She had left him to move back up to Pa with us after she found out he was seeing another woman. She signed a release for him to buy a house in Florida as a sign of good faith as Florida makes the spouse sign off if they are not yet divorced. She requested for him to pay her for personal items that she had to leave behind since she flew home and he would not send them to her. She received a check for 3,000 dollars. He referred to this in an email to her as extortion which it was not! He is represented by an attorney and my daughter is not since it was to be a uncontested simple divorce. Everything was fine until it was determined that they both had to do financial statements for it to go before the court in Florida. She received his financial statement and found to hersurprise how much he was making and that she was suppose to see this financial report before even signing any initial papers. In lieu of his assets and how much he has made in the past two years she wanted to request alimony. He took her off his medical insurance soon after they separated which has caused her to be without medical insurance and she has had many medical issues and hospitalizations that we or she has had to pay for. Is it too late for her to request alimony? Can she still retain counsel? She had notified both her spouse and his attorney recently before she would do her financial statement for (which she literally has tons of debt and may need to declare bankruptcy) that she wanted to talk to a lawyer about all this. She then received a E-service from the Florida court today that a final hearing has been scheduled for May 1st in Florida? She literally has just started a new job 3 weeks ago and has struggled to get back on her feet. Can she contact the court to delay this hearing before as she is contacting attorneys right now??

My wife and I signed a property and marital settlement that

My wife and I signed a property and marital settlement that states the terms of divison of property. It also was where I gave the house over to my wife in return for this settlement. My wife and I have been separated for 3 years. In the contracts , it states she owes me $95k for my share of the marital property. She has been benefiting form this contract living in the house and when I seek to get payment under a special relief order her lawyer comes back saying they are moving to have this put in front of a masters for eq distribution. How can the 2 contracts that I have lived by the hardships created by them and my wife the benefts it gave her, all be ignored or overriden by a masters hearing in PA?

My friends Mirian and Juan were divorced in 2008 in Illinois. At that time a Marital Settlement Agreement was created since they had 2 minor children. In 2013, they remarried, but it didn't work out again so they would like to get another divorce now. At this time, they only have 1 minor child. Do they have to create another Marital Settlement Agreement or can the previous one still apply in regards ***** ***** minor child?

Our Petition for Divorce was filed in California in Nov.

Our Petition for Divorce was filed in California in Nov. 2016 stating date of separation in March 2016. We are working on our marital settlement agreement and I was wondering if my soon to be ex couldn't pay his medical bills or debts that he incurred after the date of separation if I would be responsible for those debts. I understand the new law in 2017 in California regarding the date of separation and I am reading it to state that I would not be responsible for my husband's debts if they occurred after our date of separation that was listed on the Petition for Divorce. Thank you.

I'm filing for divorce in maryland. It's uncontested. My

I'm filing for divorce in maryland. It's uncontested. My question is about how to file the property documents correctly. Two issues: The condo where we lived when we were married, and a house my ex-wife bought when we separated. We had agreed that I'll just stay in the condo, and she'll live in the house she bought. We have a signed and notarized marital separation agreement saying that. Do I need to fill out the dom rel 33 form or just file the marital separation agreement? if I do fill dom rel 33 out, should the house she bought in December go in the "marital property" section or "non-marital property"? We technically were married when she bought it but we haven't lived together in over a year by that point.

Otherwise we have no other property to divide.
