There is still a minor child with my divorce paperwork that is 17 years old. The child lives in Germany with my spouse and has never been to the US. Before I left Germany my spouse and I had signed a separation agreement with the Staff Judge Advocates office that stated there would no end to the child/spouse support unless my spouse remarried.How should I proceed with the paperwork and this issue?

Greetings, This is a family law question in NJ. I am

Greetings,This is a family law question in NJ. I am considering divorce by bed and board and realize this is not a complete divorce.I have a chronic, expensive medical condition and want to keep the medical insurance coverage.I am unable to find anywhere in the basic insuring agreements ( I found some type of policy online) or even during a search whether or not Cigna PPO excludes or does not recognize this type of legal separation. I understand many insurance companies do accept and allow coverage to continue with bed and board. I am having trouble finding language anywhere that address this.. (also, yes, I am aware most bed and board separation agreements eventually turn into a full divorce)..In short, ,my question is;1. Where can I look to find language on divorce from bed and board in relationship to my medical coverage for Cigna PPO, NJ.?On that note, is there anything else I should be aware of with regards ***** ***** medical coverage?thank you Dee.

I live in Illinois and would like to file after 28 years of

I live in Illinois and would like to file for divorce after 28 years of marriage. My wife and I (in our 50's) have discussed divorce and I believe it would be amicable but I still believe that I need to be represented to make sure I protect my best interests. We have no minor children. I do have my oldest daughter temporarily staying in my home while she transitions from school to work. My youngest daughter will be going to college in August.I have an appointment with an attorney in two weeks to begin the process. To my knowledge she has not talked to an attorney Our home has no equity and a couple of tax liens on it. I believe the best thing to do is to allow it to go back to the mortgage company through a voluntary foreclosure, short sale or other means. We really do not have any other financial assets to speak of.My wife and I do not fight or argue and the current situation is peaceful and amicable but I know that can change. In the interest of full disclosure, my wife does know that I am currently seeing someone else.My question is this: If I move out of the home now, while waiting to meet with my attorney do I put myself in jeopardy of getting stuck with a "status quo" order where I could possibly be responsible for maintaining the house payments and her standard of living? I have seen some articles online about "moving out" being the worst thing a man can do in the divorce process.Thank you

My husband and I have agreed to separate, though we haven't

My husband and I have agreed to separate, though we haven't done it officially yet.He is living separately, but still treats my house like it is his when it suits him - he lives in an RV on my driveway right now.I have three children and I work full time. I own the house I live in, and my name only is on the title.I am a British citizen (and permanent resident of the US) and would like to take my kids back to the UK to live. He hasn't been opposed to this, but I get the idea that if I tried to have him sign something, he would fight me.He has no interest in our children.He is on 100% disability from the Navy, and is going to school through the GI bill.How can I protect my kids?Thanks,K

My divorce decree has been finalized. In the original

My divorce decree has been finalized. In the original petition for divorce, in section VI., it states " The parties now own no community property. Petitioner requests that each party be awarded their own separate and personal property.".We live in Texas, the decree was finalized on 5/19/16. My ex wife is now wanting me to sign the QDRO and give her 50% of my 401k. So my question is since the petition states the neither of us own any community property, do I have to give her 50% or can I request her to have only 25% as an example? Can I request that she gets nothing and refuse to sign the QDRO? The 401k is through my employer for the past 15 years.

My husband abandoned me And our home. I know he's been having an affair but just left one day before I got home from work no explanation just said he didn't love me anymore but I have proof text messages and calls the girl sent me from him. He planned this. Turned my life upside down. Our home about 3 years ago I refinanced via seterus it was in foreclosure his name only on mortgage. He had home when I met him. The loan is upside down with a 40 year mortgage through setrrus.: what are my rights so far as keeping home about 10 feet sits on land owned by him and his first wife. I've continued to pay mortgage 1 month behind because he was already behind. I can't refinance on my own but want to stay in home indefinitely. I live in sc. What can I do he won't communicate or sign a separation agreement. I can afford mortgage he was 27000 in arrears do financed 67000 and 27000 on back in payoff 91000. He left when he received the last bit of money I had. There are countless hurtful financial emotional abusive drinks vodka nightly left me many nights in a row stayed with this girl wine and dined her while I was in an accident that totalled my car physically hurt me memory balance issues and no car well on that end things have gotten better but I just need to know what I can do to stay in home I am self employed.
