If my sister 55 calls to come pick her up as she wants to

If my sister 55 calls to come pick her up as she wants to return home with her parents after she and her spouse were told to move out of the property, does that give my sister rights to the property again? .. (She married the caregiver a few years ago and things went downhill after her spouse insisted her parents were the cause of her relapse and not their own relationship) ....Can i prevent the spouse from entering or does the spouse have rights to enter if his wife is in my parents home and his wife is hiding here or getting a rest here? I can not have shenanigans because my folks are elderly and it will confuse them to have discord....over 90 years old. But my sister is welcome. although i prefer her stay somewhere else to not create more issues or take sides.....

My wife and I had our own bank accounts for the most part of

My wife and I had our own bank accounts for the most part of our 27 yr marriage, dividing the household expenses as a percentage of our incomes. We divided the expenses of our 4 kids, where she was responsible for the 2 girls and I was for the two boys. She is a spender and I am a saver. She has worked part time for the most part of our marriage but for the last 7 years she has been working full time. I want a divorce or legal separation in a year or 2 and I do not want to forgo half of my savings upon divorce. My savings are about 200k, including 401k and Roth ira, where as hers is about 20k. Is there a legal way for me to not to forfeit to her half of my money in my accounts, retirement and personal when we divorce?

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?
