I have a question on divorce or disillusionment. I have been

I have a question on divorce or disillusionment. I have been separated from my husband for three years in Ohio. I left him because of physical and emotional abuse. We had three kids together, the youngest will be 18 years old in two weeks. We bought a house together in the marriage, money invested, 20,000 roughly, have paperwork. Also, have police reports and children that witnessed the abuse.Now, current situation, after a year of separation I moved on, I am with someone else and 27 weeks pregnant. He also moved on and is dating someone too. We wanted a disillusionment, but since he is making things complex, thinking about a divorce. He claims he would file for adultery, but obviously we both moved on through the years and found someone else. What would be the best situation for me?Thinking about a lawyer near the Middletown OH area, thanks!~Crystal

I live in NJ. I am 2 months pregnant and filed a consensual

I live in NJ. I am 2 months pregnant and filed a consensual annulment which should be granted at my hearing date in about a month, since I had solid legal grounds.My soon to be ex husband has no interest in being a parent, and I do not plan to put him on the birth certificate.I know in NJ there is a statute that states a man is presumed to be the father if the woman was married to him within 300 days of delivering her baby.Does this mean I am required to place him on the birth certificate? Will the hospital ask me if I was married within 300 days?I am not using social services or anything, so I do not know that I need to put the father's name down, since he is not interested.I'm not sure if the presumption of paternity means his name must be on the birth certificate? Or only if he were to file for rights would the presumption of paternity be activated?Basically I want to keep things simple and just put my name there, and he is agreeable to this as he has no interest. Can you advise me if I can do this?

My husband is a superintendent of a luxurious Condominium in

My husband is a superintendent of a luxurious Condominium in Manhattan, NY. With that he gets a free apartment where two of our kids and myself live there as well.We've been married for 30 years and About a year and a half ago, I had suspicions that he was cheating on me. When I confronted him after he came back from a trip with his mistress, he admitted to me that the affair has been going on for four years.After the confession, he decided to move in with his mistress at her house, but he left the apartment to me and our grown children.He told me that I can stay with his paycheck every week since he earns extra on the side. This way, I can save for a down payment to get my own place.Well it wasn't too long until he changed his mind and now he splits the check in half, between us. His comment was why should he pay me his whole paycheck if I'm not the one working for it. Well I'm not the one that broke our marriage contract either.A few days ago, he told me that he was offered another building earning twice the salary. So he wants me to move out, so that he can stay in the new apartment without me and the rest of the family. He said he'll pay rent for a new apartment for our children and myself, but I told him that beats the purpose of saving for a down payment to get my own place.Isn't it true that if I move out that will be considered "abandonment"? Why should I move out to a lesser apartment and he gets to live luxuriously just because it might affect his relationship with his mistress?Please help!

I was married in MA, now I live in CA. I have a 6 years old

I was married in MA, now I live in CA. I have a 6 years old from this marriage who was born in Boston. I spent 1 year and half in Brazil and while there we split and filled for divorce there. With that I got full custody of my son and came back to the USA. His father had already returned to live in MA. Last November I filed for divorce in CA but I didnt include assets in Brazil neither the custody because we already have an agreement on a final order from Brazil. I filled in CA only to have the marriage dissolved in the USA. My ex for revenge decided to include custody is he is asking for 50% physical and legal custody. What are the chances of him winning when we already have a court order where he lost it, he leaves in a different state and he is not stable with issues of being an alcoholic person?
