Family law questions? Ask a family lawyer online.
Hi I am Eileen and I will assist you. This is just general information, not legal advice, no attorney client relationship is created.
I have some questions Is he going to grant the house to you or is this some sort of child support or spousal support?
So what he is saying is that the mortgage payments are child support, and the house is your portion of community property? Is that correct?
Wow, OK, this sounds good but honestly I would not sign anything without having a lawyer review it, there is too much potential for him to renig later. So a useful procedure would be have him give you a proposed settlement (which lists ALL community property) and have a local lawyer review it. This keeps you from regretting it later.
BUt it should not cost a lot. Do you know a lawyer or can I help you find one?
OK, ask around of course but try this too: www.avvo.com Its like Yelp for lawyers
You can see reviews from clients, get a feel for price, write to inquire about an interview. Great site
If you want big guns, go for the American Academy of Matrimonial lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, www.martindale.com
Don't play games with this Remember: child support is NOT forever.
This agreement must be worded very carefully. Not something we can do here. But now you know how to protect yourself and more importantly your children
Does this help?
Wonderful, glad to help. May I ask a favor? JA will not credit us if we are not ranked for a question. If you could be so kind as to give me 5 stars (upper right) it would sure help me, and I would appreciate it. I have my fingers crossed for a good outcome for you and your children
Thank you ,and best of luck to you
