Hello. I caught my husband cheating and when I confronted him,he said he's filing for divorce. Which is fine with me. But the thing is he's threatening to kick me and his stepson out of the house. I can't afford to pay for an apartment yet. Can I ask for spousal support?

California law. Bought home in Dec. 2012 (mortgage). Got

California law. Bought home in Dec. 2012 (mortgage). Got married on Oct. 2013. Separated on Feb 2015, she went up north with family. I was helping her make ends meet each month. She came back to live with me on August 2016. Bad Idea. I was thinking of fixing her immigration papers (I figure I want her to work), and then maybe filing for divorce, but I want to know exposure.I make decent money. Bi weekly I bring home about $2350 net after deductions (taxes, medical insurance for the family, 401K that just started).I know I made a mistake by bringing her back, but I figure since she is here I might help her out. But I want to know exposure. My main concern is:1) Can I keep my house?2) Temporary spousal support while we are going through divorce (I don't think I can afford it).3) Alimony?She has a kid. It is not mine. (The kid was already born by the time we got married).

I am the husband. I purchase home from wife on August 2015.

I am the husband. I purchase home from wife on August 2015. Wife paid rent in the amount of $ 900.00 per month for the months of August, September and October 2015. Wife monthly I&E had change from $ 9,258.00 on August 2015 down to $ $ 3,859.00. Her expenses dropped over 41% per month. Temporary spousal support was base on her I&E of $ 9,258 for this time period up to current status. I am contending temporary spousal support should have been reduced in the amount $ 1,781.00 per month in addition to the BK hardship of $ 1,750.00. What do I need to do to recoup my temporary spousal support over payment for this time frame?

My husband and s 2 brothers own a corp. together. I've

Hi...my husband and his 2 brothers own a corp. together. I've been married 30 years to my husband. We have 2 boys, 27 & 23 yrs. old. Their both on their own. Since I've been married, us 6 couples have bought several acres of land, improved it and have profited from it. However, the majority of the acreage (according to the property taxes) has been divided up into community property and the corporation owning it. Originally, the corporation bought the acreage and profited from it. In the last 5 years, the corp has deeded the acreage to us 6 couples as undivided community property and a percentage still showing the corp owning it also. We also have several acres that are on short and long term leases that show the corporation leasing the properties. All 3 couples have been involved with all loans that have paid for all acreage and leases (open line of credit in the millions). The 3 brothers are employees of the corporation and this is a C corp (double taxation) Why they have land in a C corporation is beyond me, but thats the way it is at this time. Now here's my question...If I were to divorce my husband of 30 years, (I didn't have a career during my marriage, (stay at home mom) but I held various little fun non permanent jobs to keep in the loop) could I be eligible for 50% of the properties we've bought together since we've married , and would I be eligible for Alimony?

I've been in a domestic violence and verbal abuse marriage

I've been in a domestic violence and verbal abuse marriage for over 15 years. My husband makes 6 digit salary and I only make about 80 a year. He tells me his only responsibilty to me and my son is to pay mortgage and utilities. He demanded my son go to a private school at me expense. I have paid everything for me and my child from day and buy all the groceries to feed him. I sacrificed a career so my son would not be a latch key kid while my husband travels and works late. His bank account, savings, pension has all grown while my accounts are depleting. He tells me in a divorce I am not going to get anything cause I have a job. He breaks my things, punches holes in walls, body slams me, isolates me from friends and family! I want out but financially scaredJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I just did aboveJA: OK got it.

I have a question about the DissoMaster calculation for

Hi. I have a question about the DissoMaster calculation for CS/SS. We have 3 kids. Because I make a significantly more amount of money than she does, she is a teacher, she is required to contribute to a pension, etc., we agreed that I would always claim 2 kids and her 1. A CPA ran the numbers and said just her claiming 1 kid, she is still paying minimal taxes. If she claimed 2 kids, her tax savings wouldn't really be that significant. However, with me claiming 2 kids vs 1 kid, it is a HUGE tax difference.What is weird is, the Disso's Guideline calculation of # ***** exemptions I should put on my W4 is way off. If I followed that, I would end up $20k short in taxes each year. And she would end up getting a $5k refund. But, then there is the "Proposed, Tactic 9". When plugging in the # ***** exceptions it shows, it pretty much evens things out.For permanent CS, do judges allow the Tactic 9 calculation? The calculation is more realistic, considering, if we went by "Guideline" I would be paying more CS and $20k in more taxes each year. The "Guideline" calculation seems to artificially increase my monthly take home by a significant amount.
