Wife left state of VA in Oct 2015, summer of 2016 she sent

Wife left state of VA in Oct 2015, summer of 2016 she sent property settlement documents ... they were signed by both parties but she never filed in her state of residence. (Ohio) Now she says she wants half of everything. Can she do this? If so, how and why? Property she requested was a Vehicle, titled in my name, with a loan. I paid off the loan, have had title ready. The only stipulation of receiving the title was I wanted my VA vehicle tags back. Then I would send the title, free and clear. This was notated in the settlement. Should I go ahead and file in the state of VA? Can I use the settlement signed by both. What is my best and quickest option to get this divorce. I have an old address, but have no clue where exactly she lives.

Context: My wife left me near 4/20/14 after a fight where I

Context:My wife left me near 4/20/14 after a fight where I struck her for the first time in 27 years of marriage. She promised in anger when she left that I would wish I never lived when she was done with me.I thought she would come back, we did some counseling with friends and she ended up moving to WA (I live in Idaho). She claimed to be working on herself. When she left I offered voluntarily to support her ($2000/month) while she recovered herself and she told me that she thought it would take her about 2 years to get her nursing skills back and be independent of me.After 1 year elapsed she went to counseling with a counselor we have used in the past and two weeks later filed for separation. (I thought it went well but apparently it was a ruse to look good on paper for the court.)The separation papers had numerous lies in it but I didn't want to bring lawyers in and I still wanted to save my marriage so I agreed to her wishes and signed an indefinite support agreement which I meant to be till she could support herself. We split assets evenly however she had an inheritance from her father and I had some Gold/Silver she let me keep in exchange for the support agreement. With her father's inheritance I would guess she left with close to $1M in assets - I was left with about the same.At the time I had about $400k in liquid assets counting the Gold/Silver.I invested the Gold and Silver in several things hoping to generate an income to stay retired from it and they all went bad.Since 7/16 I have not been able to pay her support and I have explained to her I am broke and warned her well before I stopped supporting her. I have begged her several times to let me out of the agreement - which we can do if we both agree.She filed a contempt of court motion on me last month and the hearing is on 2/23 in Tacoma WA. (Pierce Co Superior Court - case # *****)I was told it would be good to file for divorce from Idaho to bring the issues under Idaho and then try to argue against the fraudulent support agreement which I signed under duress and without council. As I understand it, this approach could quash the past non-paid parts (which adds up to about $6000 as of now I am behind in) It has now been about 2.8 years since she left and thought she would not need my support after 2 years.So here's the question:Can I use a standard divorce filing from CompleteCase with some minor changes to get this opened up before my contempt of court hearing happens? I want an at-fault divorce because she did abandon the marriage and sued me for separation and hoodwinked me into this indefinite support agreement.I have just filed for a continuance and am hoping its not too late to gain at least 60 more days to act before I have to address the contempt issue.

2nd opinion please: My granddaughter found out her estranged

2nd opinion please:My granddaughter found out her estranged husband filed a public notice in newspaper in Tennessee (she is in California) for divorce. She was given 30 days to respond to the courts and the atty. She has two weeks to file a defense. She is not in opposition of the divorce, but the facts he presented in grounds for divorce through his atty. are not accurate.1. He states there was never a child in the marriage. There was a child and she was killed in car accident when my ex-husband, my granddaughter and baby were traveling from Washington to Calif. for baby 3rd birthday. Her husband was under court ordered restraining order from seeing them due to spousal abuse at the time. We had to agree to lessen the restraining order so he could travel under the watch of military to California to accompany Brianna to California for funeral once she and grandfather where released from hospital. He never attended any criminal court trials against the driver of which there were 2. Only time he came back to California was when settlement check for him in loss of child was ready and I had to pay his flight/housing.2. He claims malicious desertion or absence which is not true, despite multiple tries and another spousal abuse conviction she tried to travel to Tenn. where he was stationed in Army to see if marriage could be restored.He claimed inappropriate marital conduction, of which he is quilty of multiple times and is currently engaged to another woman while still married.3. He has filed bankruptcy and ruined her credit and she would like courts to acknowledge that she is not responsible for his debts over last three years4.. He has been receiving off base housing allowance for being married of which he was to give her and percentage of and did not send it monthly as stipulated but not enforced by military.She only makes $12 an hour and cannot afford an atty, nor travel to Tenn. Is there a format that should be used to respond and address the discrepancies in this document, ask courts to not hold her responsible for his debts. and should she attach the legal documents supporting her claims with it?He filed complaint for absolute divorce in the Chacery Court of Montgomery Count, Tenn at Clarksville, and published in local newspaper rather than serving claiming he did not know her where abouts which also is a lie. He also owes over $10,000 to her grandfather and I for his half of moving expenses after death of child, and for legal costs during his spousal abuse issues so he could at least remain in military until they settled issues and hopefully were able to restore marriage.There are forms on line for agreed divorces in Tennessee but nothing for filing defense with the Clerk of Court and copy to attorney, Court clerk stated there is not a particular form, just type up and have notarized. Again is there a format that could be suggested to respond as directed.Thank you

The divorce has not yet been finalized. Can I still file a counter-petition in FL since we are no longer in agreement, or do we now have to re-file in PA?

My wife and I do not sleep in the same bed, and haven't for

My wife and I do not sleep in the same bed, and haven't for approximately three years. She has allowed me to have sexual intercorse two times in 2016. May 15,2016 and Jan.25,2016. in 2015 we had sex three times. 10 times in 2014, 10 times in 2013, 11 times in 2012. I have it documented and marked on these year calenders. I and married but do not have a wife in the fullest intent. I'm 72 years old, have had prostate cancer surgery. I have ED and have to take Viagra or Cialis to get an erection..Viagra and Cialis cost between $40 & $45 a tablet. I'm in pretty good health for a 72 year old. I have needs and desires for an intimate, loving, buggy, touchy feely relation with my wife. I've asked, pleaded, begged. As to go to counseling, she refuses. I do not and will not continue this marriage without a wife. I'm a boarder in out home. Im very despondent and depressed. My life expectancy is 15 more years. I'd like it in a loving caring relation. I can and won't continue like this. I do not know wether to just walk out and leave or just file for a separation or divorce.i think my situation comes under Constructive Abandonment, I'm not sure. Thanks for any and all advise you can offer. It's 1:10am and I'm up can't sleep with this stressful situation. Sincerely KennethJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: South CarolinaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not lately, a couple years ago when establishing a will I mentioned in brief. It's my second marriage and her 3 rdJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She's mentioned in the past that her father left her mother, and she didn't blame him because she was a very cold woman. My wife has become her mother in my opinion. I know a lot of senior couples who are touchy feeling,hold hands, but one another, etc. And yes even had sex. This is Christmas time of year and I can't wait till it's over. I'm depressed beyond belief at this time, to the point of giving up on this life on earth. Thanks

I have been trying to get divorced from my wife who walked

Hi. I have been trying to get divorced from my wife who walked out on our marriage almost a year ago and left me and our 3 kids. We finally had mediation and she would not accept. She now tells me she cannot afford her attorney any longer and I am trying to get her to accept the offer frommediation. “IF” she no longer has an attorney and she does not accept my offer, how can I then get this divorce over with. She needs drug testing and her boyfriend is an absconder fugitive for drugs and battery and grand theft. I granted her, with judge approval the opportunity to come get the kids up where we live every other weekend but she never shows up. HOW can I get this over with. Our children are suffering due to her failure to even show up, and I need to move on with my life. One of our kids was only 2 when she walked out, he will be 4 in March. Thank you for your help.
