Thanks for previous answers. Continuing with my ex wife's lawyer, being as the debt is void, I assume I don't have to list him if I file bankruptcy, unless he can use the divorce stipulation as a collection method, what's your opinion?

For a divorce that was contested in California but later the parties have agreed on the terms of settlement and have signed a Marital Settlement Agreement, please advise what forms specifically need to be filed and by which party to finalize the divorce. The court website lists a number of forms but it is not entirely clear to me whether all need to be completed. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks.

In Georgia, if I am divorcing my husband after 1.5 years of

In Georgia, if I am divorcing my husband after 1.5 years of marriage, thus requiring no alimony from me to him (he did not work our entire marriage by choice, just got a job in light of the divorce proceeding)...in fact he will have to pay child support for our five month old baby… What may be required of me if anything if he is unable to take care of himself on his current wages (the house will remain with me since it is in my name and I am the only person who can financially pay for the mortgage payments and need the house to raise the child)???I am trying to understand what will happen when the divorce is final in court, likely in approximately 45 days from now, and knowing that he will not have made enough money to get an apartment or really to sustain himself at all on top of having to pay child support. I am sure the courts will not allow for him to be homeless without a plan… So I'm trying to gauge what the possible scenarios would be in terms of what is likely to happen to enable the physical separation despite his low wages…?

I am assisting a friend in a divorce proceeding in the state

I am assisting a friend in a divorce proceeding in the state of New Jersey. We have a final marital settlement agreement, but are questioning the advice on a number of points. I would like to post the agreement and have it reviewed with any concerns itemized. The actual dollar amount for the alimony, child support, and equitable distribution is not under question, nor does this include any review of other information -- purely an analysis of the clauses of the agreement and if any changes should be made in the concepts, or if anything is outright missing.

In behalf of my friend,. We tried calling for lawyers who

Hi. This is Dahlia in behalf of my friend, Michael. We tried calling for lawyers who would accept cases under Family Code 2030 but unfortunately, no one would take my friend's case. Anyway, we decided to just go through the process following guidelines and asking help . Tomorrow, Michael will meet with his wife's paralegal as they will offer him a Marital Settlement Agreement. I told Michael not to sign anything but just get the settlement offered and reason out that he will think about it. Anyway, my question is, since MIchael will be in the office of the paralegal tomorrow, can he just give her (paralegal) completed FL-140, FL-142 and FL-150?...or does it have to be somebody else?

I am looking to file for divorce for irreconcilliable differences. I am curious about what the divorce laws are in South Carolina for a marriage of this length with a child.
