I am sending this on behalf of my daughter since I already

I am sending this on behalf of my daughter since I already had an acct setup. My daughter had been served divorce papers from her husband who lives in Florida and she has lived in Pa for the last 2.5 years. There are no assets to split up and no children involved. She had left him to move back up to Pa with us after she found out he was seeing another woman. She signed a release for him to buy a house in Florida as a sign of good faith as Florida makes the spouse sign off if they are not yet divorced. She requested for him to pay her for personal items that she had to leave behind since she flew home and he would not send them to her. She received a check for 3,000 dollars. He referred to this in an email to her as extortion which it was not! He is represented by an attorney and my daughter is not since it was to be a uncontested simple divorce. Everything was fine until it was determined that they both had to do financial statements for it to go before the court in Florida. She received his financial statement and found to hersurprise how much he was making and that she was suppose to see this financial report before even signing any initial papers. In lieu of his assets and how much he has made in the past two years she wanted to request alimony. He took her off his medical insurance soon after they separated which has caused her to be without medical insurance and she has had many medical issues and hospitalizations that we or she has had to pay for. Is it too late for her to request alimony? Can she still retain counsel? She had notified both her spouse and his attorney recently before she would do her financial statement for (which she literally has tons of debt and may need to declare bankruptcy) that she wanted to talk to a lawyer about all this. She then received a E-service from the Florida court today that a final hearing has been scheduled for May 1st in Florida? She literally has just started a new job 3 weeks ago and has struggled to get back on her feet. Can she contact the court to delay this hearing before as she is contacting attorneys right now??

I live in NC. My wife wants a divorce. Very angry. She says

I live in NC. My wife wants a divorce. Very angry. She says she's coming after me for child support, alimony and 401K. She's left many times over the last few years, signing leases and then backing out of them to return home (at least four leases, maybe more). She's diagnosed OCD and takes medicine. She hasn't left yet, but she soon will. No physical abuse issues, no adultery though I'm not sure what she will throw at me to get her way / outcome. I have a good job and pay for everything. She works part time and doesn't really contribute financially. She's coming after me hard and I'm wondering (1) How much child support should I pay when she leaves (or if at all) before getting a signed agreement and (2) given our wage differences, how do I keep from keeping her living the high-life while still providing for my kids? I live in NC, have four kids all below 12 yo, and will have to say no when she cools off and wants to come back.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Sorry, was typing as quickly as I could.JA: Do both sides consent to the divorce? Are there minor children in the relationship?Customer: Four children. We will consent. She may cool off and want to come back, but I'm done and she will accept that.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. Though I do have a separation agreement, signed and notarized from the first time she left that says we waive the right to alimony, set child support and disposition of property. The agreement is 2013.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

My ex-husband who is an attorney, cut child support, based

My ex-husband who is an attorney, cut child support, based on our Separation Agreement, which stipulates if a child marries that's grounds for emancipation, so he did reduce after her date of marriage 1/16/17. However, he petitioned in 2012, to reduce child support for said child above. I was helped by a Consumer Protection lawyer, here on this site, but I need an attorney that specializes in either family law or post-divorce law. I need legal advise as how to proceed., as I don't know how long and he's not required to tell me but I found out in in March 2017, that he is unemployed and although the 2012 petition he brought against me I appealed, and for my other daughter the family court referee stated in her appeal answer that child shall get certain amount until emancipated. So, he's trying to use the Separation Agreement Stipulation, when in 2012 appeal it states clearly all support going forward would be for the child living with me. If I go to court I believe he's in arrears now 3 months and by the time I get my court date and petition am I at risk for losing more money, if he is still unemployed? Or does the petition that states what I get will it still stand? I don't want to spend money to go to court if there is a chance the judge will reduce for said child because he is unemployed?? Or is it,"deadbeat dad," situation, and he truly is in child support arrears for what he cut each month he continues to pay the reduced amount?
