My husband and I want a low key, inexpensive and expeditious

My husband and I want a low key, inexpensive and expeditious divorce. He has volunteered to hire his own attorney (i.e. I am not represented by my husband's attorney), and have his attorney draw up a non contested divorce agreement including what my husband believes is a fair financial settlement for my signature. What is my risk if I do not hire my own attorney to evaluate if this is a fair settlement versus doing a more traditional court filing approach?

She was only married for 6 months and is seeking divorce on account of irretrievable breakdown.

My husband, married in Mexico, has a huge child support

Hello. My husband, married in Mexico, has a huge child support arrears. He is now paying for it, but has been forced to retire in Mexico. He went to court to try to get it reduced, as he only receives a pension from Mexico equal to the arrears payments here inCalifirnia. The court refused to lower it. He had tried to make a deal with his ex, children are in their 30s, but she wants 122 thousand dollars to settle. He doesn't have that, more is peeing in interest and he can pay off the actual support owed of 60 thousand, but she refuses. So, unable to pay now, I am afraid he will just leave me to spite his ex and stay in Mexico and not pay anything. My question is, I have a house in my name, can his ex put a lien on it or come after my personal assets that are only mine and only in my name?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Just his court order to pay $700 monthly for arrearsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, why wouldn't the court reduce the amount seeing that he can't make it? I basically have been supporting him so all his pension goes to arrears.

I went to court for modification of child support and since

I went to court for modification of child support and since I own my own business, the court has asked me to provide documentation i.e. credit card statements, personal and business tax returns for 2015, 2016, banking statements, loans, leases, P&L, paycheck stubs. Today I received from my ex wife attorney demanding CCP 2031.010 demanding all these items to be given to her by 10:00am Mar. 3, 2017. There's no way I can provide all the information she's looking for by that date. What are my options to this demand?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Orange County, CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, I only have 7 months left for one of my children and a year and a half for the other. I thought they would do the calculation like they have always done and be done with it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: what are my rights and options at this point?

I found out today that my ex took money out of a savings

I found out today that my ex took money out of a savings account (that I didn't know his name was on). I can track all contributions into the savings and show that none of them came from him and that all of them were made after our divorce papers had been drawn up. Some contributions into the account even occurred after the divorce was final. Can I legally do anything to him to get the money back or file charges?
