Curious... I have a friend who, in order to keep from lousing spousal support from her ex upon remarriage, has instead planned to go through a "commitment" ceremony with her current "fiance," and to then legally change her name to that of the fiance, but to not register a legal marriage. They'll be living as husband and wife with the same name, but specifically avoiding marriage so as not to lose spousal support from the ex.Is this actually a thing? That seems like a big loophole. I realize there are benefits from marriage she cannot get from the "fiance" without a legal marriage... and that a legal name change does not constitute a marriage, but this seems very sketchy to me.

My ex husband has told me he no longer wishes to pay the

My ex husband has told me he no longer wishes to pay the lifetime alimony awarded in 1999 in our divorce. He tells me he had a background check done on me, and I had two boyfriends since our divorce, so my alimony claim would be thrown out anyway, he is offering me one year alimony for our agreement to go away. He told me all his assets are in his current wife's name, so he has no assets. Is he right ?

My boyfriend and I are getting married soon. He has 3 boys,

My boyfriend and I are getting married soon. He has 3 boys, 2 younger ones whom he loves dearly and provides for. His oldest son is on his own. My concern is that the 2 younger ones mothers will put him on child support out of jealousy because he married me. Can they do that? Will it effect my income seeing as though I make way more than him? Can it be prevented? Of course he has a parental responsibility I just don't want the financial strain on us over pure misery and vengefulness from these bitter women.

My husband has been paying alimony to his ex wife for the last few years. He always sends her a check on the 1st of each month. His ex has been ill for quite some time and passed away yesterday. Does he just stop paying the alimony for next month or does he need to get a court order or some official ok?

My sisters husband is controlling every aspect of her life,

my sisters husband is controlling every aspect of her life, he also confiscated her phone, he intercepts her debit cards when she orders them, she started air b and b to make SOME money, he transfers all of it into his own account. She has consented to NONE of this, and she has to borrow money from him. Then he won't let her buy basic things for health and stuff because she 'owes' him. So now she has no $ to care for her 2 year old( whom he spends ZERO time with), let alone herself. What can be done?

I am currently "separated" from my husband of 10 yrs. and by

Hello. I am currently "separated" from my husband of 10 yrs. and by "separated" meaning we still live in the same apartment but in separate rooms. He originally wanted a divorce and announced it on Nov 2015. It's been 7 months and nobody has filed and his main reason for it is because he cannot afford it. He makes $50k a year and we have two children together both under 18. I am currently on disability due to an illness that requires me to be on dialysis 3x a week. I also recently acquired a weekend part time job (2x a week). He has consulted with a lawyer back in November and was told for both our incomes, I only get $500 for child support for both kids and alimony. I want to now file for the divorce because my situation at home is not the best for me and my children emotionally. My husband has now spent at least $10k on himself (since the separation) and his parents are helping pay for the apartment. So basically, most his paycheck goes to himself and whatever purchases he makes for himself. I wanted to get advice on what steps I should do to move forward with the divorce. I am unable to work full time due to my illness and he wants me to work full time to support myself. I just want to know if alimony and child support for me and my children is in fact $500. Thank you and any info would be greatly appreciated!
