Recent Temporary Spousal Support questions

My husband and I have been together for 21 years married for

My husband and I have been together for 21 years married for 17. He is a surgeon I managed his office for 21 years. I have a degree in something else which I was never able to pursue. He is a difficult man, needy, moody, helpless. I had to retire due to health issues. So he does nothing to help me around the house. If I try to talk to him about it or anything else right away his response is let's just get a divorce. Well I decided to call a lawyer for a consultation which he does not know about. What are my rights? In this situation?

Are Alimony support payments always based on the total

Are Alimony support payments always based on the total amount listed on the 1040 tax form, regardless of where the income came from? If so in the state of Hawaii how do I calculate the amount to ask for? Note: I have not known what my husband makes for nearly a decade. My guess at this time with bonus 120k. Additionally he does many electrical side jobs.He currently pays all of our household bills. This has been for the last 3 years when our son became ill. (rent, electrical, car insurance) I pay expenses, medical expenses (which have created debt) and telephone.

I'm interested in getting a restraining order against my

I'm interested in getting a restraining order against my husband for emotional abuse. He has had a texting relationship with a female co-worker (the three of us work together) for about two years. He has referred to me in texts to this woman as a "twat" and that I'm very selfish, etc. This has made me very depressed and anxious in the workplace as well as at home. Despite the fact that I have begged him to stop this behavior, he persists in it. He refuses to go to counseling. In addition, he has repeatedly spent money from our joint account that has caused us to be unable to pay our bills.

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?
