My wife and I have agreed to a non-contested divorce in the

My wife and I have agreed to a non-contested divorce in the State of Virginia (Fairfax County). We have a signed property settlement agreement that was executed at least two years before the petition for a divorce. My wife is the "Plaintiff" -- I noted on the "Complaint for Divorce" that she requested that "she be awarded the following: a divorce on the grounds that we have been separated for a period of one year; and that the separation and property settlement agreement, dated April 3, 2009, be ratified, affirmed, and incorporated, but not merged into the final order; and finally, "that the Plaintiff be awarded such other and further relief as the nature of this case may require" It is this statement that concerns me as it infers that she may be requested something other than what we agreed to in the property, separation agreement. I was told this is "standard language" but I don't trust nor like this statement being included as I don't know "what else might be required by this case. Should I be concerned? Is this standard language? Do I need to have an attorney in the court to ensure this matter doesn't turn into something I did not expect?

I need to be rally clear. My husband and I are in Maryland,

I need to be rally clear. My husband and I are in Maryland, living in our home. I am filing for a no contest divorce. It is simple as we gave no debt, nobchildren, easy division of property. He will consent to sign the settlement papers. I will file them in couple ofcweeks. Now we wait for a court date. Right so far? Also, I am told that MD now allows cohabitation with no waiting. So he can stay here until all is finalized right?

I was behind on my car payment in New York State. Chase sent

I was behind on my car payment in New York State. Chase sent it to their collection side. I set up the 20% payment to be able to start monthly payments again. I gave them 1000 in May and had 2600 scheduled but I called them to tell them I wouldn't be able to pay it for another 15 days. He told me that he would no longer work with me because I had said I would pay it on the previous date. He is telling me I have to surrender my car. I told him I could pay off the remainder of the 20% and then give them 1000 dollars a month. My car payments were $312. Am I out of options? Should I ask to speak to someone else

When a person states responsibility and requests that

When a person states responsibility for damages and requests that repairs be done (not through your insurance company but by their own contractor) to begin on a specific date, then calls within a week of scheduled repairs (after 4 months of waiting) and says they are not going to follow through...is this breach of contract? Can they be sued?
