Hello and thank you for using our service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. I just ask for two things: 1) Before you sign off, please remember to rate me positively as that is the only way that I am paid and your question does not close after you rate me so I can still answer additional questions without additional charge if you have follow-ups even weeks or months later; and, 2) IF I have bad news for you, please remember I am only the messenger. When you rate me, it is my service to you that you rate, not whether the news is good or bad. I will try my best to give you a solution, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.

 

Do you have a copy of the Iranian marriage certificate?

Did you file joint taxes in 1984 - 1989?

I think my husband has certificate


but he is denying


we filed taxes together .it has been long time


how can I get those tax returns

YOu can contact the IRS by phone and request a copy of the tax transcripts. Also, think of any other documents you may have had that showed you were married, such as joint ownership of a house, insurance policies (car, health, life) and also friends that can testify that they knew you were married in 1984. Your child's birth certificate. These are just suggestions, there may be other documents that you can think of.

 

He is trying to claim the car dealership is not marital property. If he took out a loan when he purchased the dealership your lawyer can subpoena those documents because he would have shown his marital status on those loan documents or any other loans he may have taken out during those years. Don't be afraid because he is now trying to claim 1989 as the marriage year, there are a lot of ways to show you were married in 1984. I hope this helps clarify.

 

Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance to you. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If you do rate me positively, a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just make sure you type: FOR GEORGETOWN LAWYER on the subject line. Thank you!

if in worse case the judge agreed we were married on 1989


when we did american wedding do i get any thing from 1989 to now


or i do not getting anything from his business

Worse case if the judge said 1989 you would still be entitled to spousal support, child support for any child under age 18 and 50% of all marital assets, except the car dealership. I hope this helps clarify. Thanks and kind regards.

i talked to you last week can i ask you a question

sure, what is the question?
Ask Your Own Family Law Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

my husband moved out of our bedroom to next bedroom on 2004


and moved out 2006.i filled for divorce dec 2012.whatever he made


and bought after 2006 is mine or not.as i told you before we were


married aug 1984

VA statute 20-107.3 states that valuation of the property would be as of the date of the last separation so since you separated in 2006 you would most likely not be entitled to anything income he made or debt he acquired after that date. I hope this helps clarify. I am signing off for tonight, so if there is a follow up you can post it and I will reply to it asap in the morning. Thanks again and kind regards.

we went to court jan 10 and judge said we were married in va 1989and


she did not recognize the Iranian marriage a legal one because was


not registered in va and i did not have any tax return from 1989 a to 2000


showing that business did not make any money and he lied and said


that from beginning he had 15 employee and he did massive advertising.


and judge said i have no evidence of how much business worth and


any other evidence of tax return,so i do not take any part of business.


do you think if i find the taxes we filled from 1989 and if i appeal


is it work or is waste of money.and how long i have time for appeal


the judge gave the house which has 500,000.00 loan on it .house


worth 1,400,000.00 ,so i have 900,000.00 in house and she gave me


18,000.00 a permanent alamoney. but i end up with 100,000.00


lawyers fee.and judge recognized 16 years of marriage not 29.and she


said that he was out of house from 2006.he paid 225,000.00 for my


lawyers fee.my total fee for lawyers came to 325,000.00.i am already


in dept 100,000.00.do you think appealing works because i do not want


to end up with more debts.please advise immediately

Only you can decide if it is worth it to appeal. You can only appeal based on what you gave the judge. YOu cannot bring in new evidence in an appeal. If you find the tax returns or value of the business (your lawyer should have told you that was needed by the way) you can file a motion to reconsider with the judge if you find the evidence of what the business is worth. If the business is worth a lot it may be worth it to get the judge to reconsider the decision once you can find the evidence. You need to ask your lawyer how much time you have to ask the judge to reconsider. .Does this help clarify?

by the law if you find the new evidence,can you open a new case


if i can i will try to do that and asked my lawyers but they do not


want open a new case.it looks like all along they did not show my


case the way suppose to be.if i change lawyer can i bring new evidence


but i do not want also loose what i have.

That is definitely a question best addressed to a local attorney. you should consult a new attorney and discuss your case. Thanks and good luck.

Hello,

I’m Wendy, and I’m moderator for this topic. It seems the Expert has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the Expert thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new Expert to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right Expert can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from another one of the Experts?

Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question.

Thank you,
Wendy
