Whenever you have a chance I'm hoping you can answer one

Whenever you have a chance I'm hoping you can answer one more question. Financially does it make any sense to just get legally separated instead of divorced?

A few months back I lost my employment and subsequently was

A few months back I lost my employment and subsequently was unable to pay my huge child support obligation (set by divorce stipulation in better financial times), and subsequently moved out of state to live with my Girl friend while looking to get back on my feet. Subsequently I was unable to attend a hearing in Suffolk county NY as I am 1500 miles away and despite me telling the court I am unable to get there due to financial hardship, the magistrate issued a warrant for my arrest for a non-appearance... The Question I have is now my family in NY told me that another court document just showed up stating I need to appear for a "WARRANT REVIEW", of which I still have not been able to return to NYS for months and can not attend this one either. What is a Warrant Review? (**Ive asked for a phone conference several times and have been denied each and every time.) I'm just trying to get back on my feet so I can see my daughter and pay my ex in full. I'm scared. Thanks for your help.

This is a little embarrassing, but some verbal abuse lead to

Hi.This is a little embarrassing, but some verbal abuse lead to me looking for love in other ways, which eventually resulted in divorce of a 20 year marriage. I got all the blame and there was a lot of fear and anxiety associated with my former husband threatening things that he wasn't allowed to do to the person in my life that wanted to help me. My former husband had me sign over my marital property rights so he wouldn't do anything verbal or otherwise.My question is, having been diagnosed with MS in 2007, and basically being thrown out of our home and not receiving any assets, do I have any just cause for revisiting the stressful events of the divorce? The fatigue and anxiety has been overwhelming. The depression and anxiety about having "temporary housing" is so serious.It's been extremely difficult. Thank you for your kind help, as finances are difficult. I am trying to seek Social Security Disability Insurance. I don't even get alimony. I do receive help for rent, but it's not part of an agreement. He refused to put it in writing.Best,Julie

My parents have been married for nearly 25 years. He was

My parents have been married for nearly 25 years. He was active duty for 20 of those years and since 2012 has held a high security clearance working as a civilian for the military. I am the second oldest of 5, ages 23, 19, 13, 10, and 7, the two youngest of which are autistic. My mother never got her degree from college and has been a stay at home mom during this time. It has recently come to light that he had been having an affair with a woman since 2012. He claimed this ended when he received a job as a civilian at a military base oversees in January of this year (Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany), he moved her and the three younger children from Florida, purchased their first house, but recently went back to her. Throughout the past several weeks, however, it has come to light that he had not been happy since the first child was born 23 years ago and the only reason he never left was because he never found anyone good enough. He claims this woman was the only woman, but he's been for so long it's hard to tell. My mother wants to leave him, but has no money to do so and to my understanding he would lose his job and possibly retirement if this comes out. He says he couldn't afford a lawyer, but we have also recently discovered he has a secret bank account with over $100,000 without her in the account. He also refused to give my mother access to any other of his secret accounts as he has spent more than he'll admit on women for an unknown amount of time.She wants to leave him, but he needs his job to pay for all of the children's tuition. He said if they learned of the cheating, he'd lose his high security clearance and chances of getting another high paying job. Myself, 19 and my older brother, 23, are both in college in Texas and there's little I can do.I would just like to know, taking military law into consideration, and the things he has done, what are my mother's options?Also, my father changed his residency to Texas for my school purposes, but my mother didn't get around to it and still is a Florida resident. Would it make a divorce easier if she changed her residency?

I need a lawyer who is familiar with Louisiana divorce law.

I need a lawyer who is familiar with Louisiana divorce law. If you aren't familiar with Louisiana law, please don't answer. Just refund my money. Louisiana is like another country. I married in 2007. We had a pre nup but we only had one attorney, we did not disclose our assets and liabilities to each other so I question the validity of the pre nup. At the time I was making way more money than him and owned the home that he moved into after the wedding. We never established community property. I got really sick with a neurological illness and could no longer work in June of 2014. I took from my savings and paid off my 3200 sq ft. 4 bedroom 4 bathroom home and my BMW 335i. So he continued paying the monthly bills that he had already been paying. The only thing he paid that he wasn't paying before was the grocery bill. Before that we took turns buying groceries. I always paid the mortgage, the taxes, and the insurances on the house, as well as my own car insurance and car notes. One morning in July of 2015 at 5:30 am, he was leaving to go to the gym (or so I thought) and he walked up to me and just said he wasn't happy and he was leaving. I could no longer drive. He was supposed to take me to a dental appointment that morning. I had to cancel the appointment. I was also prepping for a colonoscopy which he was supposed to take me to the next day. We had slept in our bed together the night before. This was a Tuesday. He had secretly been moving things out of the house and from the back yard for days. He even had the dish network turned off and took all the tvs in the house. I had to prep for the procedure all alone without even a tv to watch. He filed for no fault divorce that morning. I was served a couple of months later. When it got closer to the time of the divorce, he presented me with an agreement to sign that he would hold off the divorce for a few months so I could have health insurance and he wanted $40,000 for the pool that he had paid to put in the back yard, which I never wanted. He cut down two 20 year old beautiful live oak trees and a 20 year old cypress tree. I signed the agreement because I had so many medical bills and was desperate. The attorney who did the pre nup won't fight against his own pre nup. I am currently being represented by an attorney who is a family friend. He says that I can petition the court as a "sick spouse" and can get up to 1/3 of his income. I still am unable to work. My present attorney also says I can petition the court to compel him to go to counseling. He has never even allowed me to talk to him about reconciliation because he feels so guilty. I know I can't stop the divorce entirely, but I need to stay on his health insurance. With my health issues, it will be hard for me to get insurance that I can afford. I know I need to get another attorney that will move faster with all of this. So please tell me with the information I have given you ---what can I do? I don't want this divorce. He only left because I got sick. We are both 57 years old. Please help me.

My husband and I married in 2014in alabama. I found porn of him with two other women on his computer. He then change and started asking me to do very disturbing sexual things. Like urinating in his face, taking nude photos, sharing one another, etc. I wouldn't pertisapate in this actions. I had to return to ky until my daughter, his step daughter finished school year. He wouldn't let me return back to alabama. I'm not working due to not being able to take my medications , knee problems and mental stress. He constantly asks me to come back , then changes his mind when he finds out I will not pertisapate in his sexual eskipads. Then he becomes very buligeran. He will not file for divorce. Says he will do it in his own time. He changed jobs and dropped my insurance. Can I collect spousal support and have him to pay a portion of my medical? We are not legally separated.

I live in Jefferson County Alabama. My wife and I separated

I live in Jefferson County Alabama. My wife and I separated several months ago and at that time we wrote up a lease to purchase option on the house. The house is in my name and was purchased prior to the marriage. We agreed that she could pay the mortgage for the next 5 years with the option to buy it during this time if she could get approved for loan. This contract was literally drawn up on the porch of a mutual friend and was never submitted to any court. Since that agreement we reconciled and moved back in with each other. We had 2 copies of this contract signed by both parties and witnesses. I agreed to tear up my copy and she tore up her copy after the reconciliation. Recently, again we separated and are in the middle of a divorce. I want to cut all ties and my attorney and I believe the contract is void since there was a reconciliation and both of us had willingly tore up the contract. My question is: Does she have any chance that the contract is valid? Thanks for your time.
