Anything you acquired during the marriage is considered marital property. It doesn't sound like you can reach agreement with your spouse for you to keep that mobile home. Even if the mobile home is in your name, Maryland considers the home as titled tenants by the entirety. Depending on the...Read more »

Your defamation claim would be against your coworkers. You have to have evidence that you did not say what they reported. Regarding HR, since Black and Decker is a private company, you should check their disciplinary action policies to see if you have any recourse.

Support is based on the child support guidelines. Its still the mother's responsibility to help raise the child. You should contact an attorney, but if SSI does not meet the minimum requirements, I believe that the mother is required to pay support.
