Connecticut Family Law question. My wife has filed a divorce

Connecticut Family Law question.Hello,My wife has filed a divorce against me in the State of CT and we have a prenuptial that reads:"f. In the unfortunate circumstance that the marriage shall be dissolved throughdivorce, the following agreement regarding alimony is considered fair and equitable bythe parties to this document due to the contribution of Yvette to the start-up and successof the business:1. Marriage of less than one year - No alimony shall be paid to either party.2. Marriage of 1-3 years - Pierre shall pay alimony in the amount of 20% ofPierre's net income.'~Oj 3. Marriage of more than 3 years - Pierre shall pay alimony in the amount of kbr \J5"Z j6% of the Pierre's net income."The attorney who prepared this pre-nuptial attached a cover letter stating:"You have an agreement regarding alimony should the marriage dissolve, however there is noend date stated in the document. Is the alimony for 5 years, 15 years, or lifetime? If acourt is required to resolve a dispute in this area, it will look heavily toward the length ofthe marriage and the assets of the parties. It is very unusual for long term or lifetimealimony to be granted these days unless there is a stay at home spouse with no goodearning potential or there is some special circumstance (illness or disability) which makesit necessary."I have had major health issue (2 cancer, brain tumor and sugery) and had to stop my business and file a Chapter 13 that's been approved.My wife and I have been married for 10 years but separated for practically 7 years, visiting each other from time to time. She's residing in Connecticut and I am a FL resident since 2006.She's been the manager of her LLC and self-supporting since we met.How can I fight the alimony to reduce the duration or even the grant ?I cannot afford a lawyer and presently discussing about mediation with my wife.Thank you for helping.

Dear Attorney, thank you so much help. My question is: I'm

Dear Attorney, thank you so much for your help.My question is:I'm married, we signed with my wife Pre-Nuptial Agreement.I wanted that, because she is rich while I have nothing. I wanted to be correct. We worked together in her company, without huge success.Our relationship went wrong and she wants to divorce, because she lost her trust in me and the business as she says.How long takes the divorce if there is no mutual agreement and I don't want to divorce, just my wife want that? Honestly, I'm not the faulty party in this thing and I need time for the divorce, I don't want to do that immediately.Thanks a lot. Attila

My registered domestic partner and I agree to dissolve our

My registered domestic partner and I agree to dissolve our partnership of seven plus years. We have a prenuptial agreement prepared by an attorney which states that all property is separate and neither party has rights to the property of the other. We did not commingle funds during the partnership.My question is is there a way to indicate our intentions on form FL-160 without having to give valuation for each one's assets and debts?

I plan to get married in another country to someone of that

I plan to get married in another country to someone of that country by having only a ceremony. We want to be legally married in the US later this year which is when she plans to move here. Would it be too late to have a prenuptial agreement between us? Her and I would both get a lawyer to have it done in the state of Alabama.

I have some questions regarding marriage: I am planning to

I have some questions regarding marriage:I am planning to marry my girlfriend later this summer. Our initial arrangement was to do a dual religious (Muslim) and civil (court marriage). There are some differences between the two systems especially when it comes to custody and financial arrangements. My questions are as follows:1. Regarding custody: in the event we had kids and we end up divorcing, which of the 2 laws will be the main court reference? Should that be outlined beforehand or the system is default for everyone2. Regarding financial arrangements: it is my understanding that with the religious system, a financial agreement needed to be made before marriage, where a dowry and financial compensation in the event of divorce are made. Can these arrangement be made in form of prenuptial agreement? Who would write such an agreement, a lawyer or the religious clerk performing the wedding ceremony? The arrangement is for this agreement to supersede any other arrangement3. We might end up accelerating the wedding plans. Would it be possible to proceed with the wedding for now and add the prenuptial agreement later (1-2 years down the line) or should it be pre-specified before marriage.

I live in Henrico, VA. My husband has filed uncontested

I live in Henrico, VA. My husband has filed for an uncontested divorce. We have been separated for two years. We have a joint mortgage on a home I purchased October, 2006 prior to our marriage. He signed a pre-nuptial agreement forfeiting any monetary rights to the house if we divorced. We were married February, 2007. In 2012 he insisted I refinance the house so he could retire. He became the co-borrower on the mortgage. The deed on file with the county only has my name. We separated July, 2014. I rented the house out September, 2014. I have paid all fees associated with finding a renter, all repairs and any mortgage that wasn't covered from the rent income. My husband's attorney did not mention the disposition of the house or mortgage in the divorce papers. He wants me to waiver my rights to appear before a judge. What can I do to protect myself, and make my husband legally responsible for half of the mortgage if I lose the renter?
