Please. I have been disabled since 2001. I was single then

please. I have been disabled since 2001. I was single then and receiving ssi and ssdi, which I had my medicare and medicaid at the time. I had got married in june of 2012 and they stopped my smaller check along with my medicaid because my husbands income was too high. Now we'll be officially divorced in a bout a week give or take few extra days, will my medicaid and my ssdi start up again automatically? I'm still disabled and that most likely will not get better.

It's not totally finalized but we have no kids together, I dont want anything from him and I don't have anything regardless of if he wanted something from me.. We both waived it so we don't have to go to a final court thing, date, not sure.. We'll just be divorced and I'll be homeless then as well as I am having a hard time being able to afford housing.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm sorry Im in Goffstown, NH currently but will be trying to obtain some kind of housing in Manchester, NH because that is where all my doctors and things are atJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I wasn't sure if I could tell them before hand because the process is started and almost complete, So I guess no not yet because I figured I would need the final judgement or whatever it is the actual Divorce DocumentJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's about it, just want to know what to do and what I am entitled to again if anything

We have always paid child support through online banking,

We have always paid child support through online banking, recently we had to close the account due to fraudulent activity that we used to pay out of that was connected directly to my husband's ex-wife online bankaccount. We are now sending her money through email request, where she would need to link her account once again. She is refusing to do so and also states that our banking needs to remain the same and that there's no reason for her to change the way that she is receiving child support from us. I don't know why she thinks she has a say in where we bank. We have already closed the account, so there is no way for that to happen. She's refusing to accept the payment by not setting up the link to her bank account. Are we obligated to send child support in another way? Can I just keep a record of all the times we have attempted to send payment, and put the money in a separate account? She has also stated that she will not accept a check. It is also our fear that she will amass a numerous amount of checks (if we send them to her) and cash them all at once. We are ordered through the divorce paperwork to pay her child support, back child support, back spousal support, and back reimbursement for medical expenses School tuitions and therapy appointments. We are in California in Los Angeles county.

I was married for 19 years 10 months. I have been divorced

I was married for 19 years 10 months. I have been divorced since 1994. I am a Canadian resident but lived in California from 1987 to 1994. I separated while living in California and filed for divorce. At the time I had full custody of 2 minor children and decided to move back to Canada. My ex spouse has been paying family support of $1900 @ month since then. Recently he lost his job. He has filed for the support to be discontinued. I was advised that the support had exceeded the time limit and his unemployment were grounds as well. I have agreed . His lawyer has sent a proposed stipulation regarding termination of support. He has advised that I cunsult a lawyer before signing. My question is this: the document states that I cannot ever request spousal support again. Is this a standard clause? If he were to become employed again, is there any chance the court would allow spousal support at this stage? My ex spouse is 62 years old and I am 61. I have never re-married. He has remarried.

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in. My

This question is for a woman lawyer only: We live in Virginia. My husband and I are divorcing after 23 years. He has fully supported me financially for the entire marriage. I receive only 600.00 per month from Social Security. He receives approximately 1,500.00 from Social Security and about 1,000.00 from military retirement. He will also receive an inheritance from his mother when she dies (She is now 90 years old). He wants to have an uncontested divorce and give me nothing. I am a senior citizen and past working age. Am I entitled to receive any portion of his income and inheritance? What are my rights?

I am 70 years old and retired 1 year ago. I started working

I am 70 years old and retired 1 year ago. I started working part time 10 months ago, because it was obvious that I could not afford to continue to pay $900. a month alimony for the rest of my life. My ex is on disability and receives half of my military retired pay along with the alimony. She hasn't re-married and I have. She hasn't worked since 1972, because I let her get away with not working. We got divorced in 2000. My wife now is retired and has a small pension from her late husband and gets her share of his social security. I average $1000. per month from my part time job and get $2571 from social security along with half of my military retirement. The court (in Arkansas) wants to use my wife's assets as some of my usable income to determine my ability to pay alimony still. My wife came into this marriage with a house which she sold and we used the proceeds of that to help to pay for our house which I have paid off with my income after living here about 3 years (paid off in about 2003). My attorney says that I might lose this court battle and have to pay her court and attorney costs. Also, he and the ex's attorney agree that alimony could be increased if the judge thinks that my wife and I are being evasive about our savings. We took out a substantial amount of money from the bank and deposited it in a safe deposit box AFTER my attorney advised me to do so. Now, with our financial affidavits and bank and credit card statements for the last 5 years in the hands of the ex's attorney, they think we are being evasive and hiding money. But, my wife intends on the money she put in the safe deposit box, should and will all go to her children upon her passing. It's her money and this should not be a factor in the ability to get the alimony dropped. Please help us and advise what you would recommend as our next step. The other attorney thinks she will prevail, especially if the judge thinks we are being evasive and has made an offer to check with her client on whether or not to settle by me dropping the motion and she would pay all of her attorneys fees to this point. My attorney wants to know how to proceed.
