I am writing to inquire about a postnuptial agreement my

Hi,I am writing to inquire about a postnuptial agreement my wife and I are working on.Background: we got married 3 months ago in Tennessee, both of us are on work visas and undergoing the naturalization process (we are from different countries). We were working on prenuptial agreement but we had to advance our wedding date because of family emergencies.Two things I am concerned about and hoping to cover in the agreement:1. My family is still living overseas and I am also planning to retire overseas. I am planning to set aside a maximum of 20% of my annual income (after taxes) and wire it to my account overseas. This money will help support my family (parents and sister, they have access to the account) and what is left will contribute to my retirement. I want the remainder of this 20% to be out of any settlement in case we ran into problems that end up in divorce. My questions:a. Can such term be written in a postnuptial agreement in Tennesseeb. How do I need to word that in an agreement? Meaning, in the unlikely event that we end up divorcing, will I be responsible for all the wired money? What is left of it?2. My family have property overseas and it has huge sentimental value, not much monetary (around 15 K in value). Eventually, I will be inheriting that property. I am hoping to keep the land in the family, can I write a term in the postnuptial that any land I inherit is out of reach in the event of divorce?

I need help with a potential divorce in Iowa involving 2

I need help with a potential divorce in Iowa involving 2 children ages 8 & 10. I am an overnight accountant and I'm wondering if that will hurt my future custody arrangement. Their father is very good to the kids so I believe we would agree to 50% joint physical custody. He makes 4 times my income and I also need help with estimated child support figures and alimony. I make $30,000 and he makes $120,000 annually.

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 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?
