I have supported him completely for the last 20 years. He has his own business, but none of the money from that business was contributed to the family income. I paid for the past two years of our daughter's college, have paid every bill, have made insurance payments for his life, car, etc., and... Read more »
You need an attorney yesterday. Anyone who has substantial assets needs an attorney. He should get half minus the value of his business but it appears you aren’t calculating it properly. You really need an attorney!
I am legally separated and have been for the past eight months. I am paying child support now. When we go to final decree, At which point is the gross income calculated for the new child support figure? In other words do I pay the existing child support amount or is it calculated by my wife’s... Read more »
Divorce final 02/06/17, he was given 120days to refi, he didn’t get the refi until July but it required me to sign not only quit claim but a release of judicial lien. He owes me 500/mo for 3 years so I asked my attorney before signing that doc. He advised me not to sign, my ex filed contempt... Read more »
The filing fee can vary by a few dollars county to county, but our office generally pays $ 182 for Porter county including credit card fees. There is an additional fee for personal service. This fee is paid by the client.

When I returned the house was completely empty including my deceased father's birth and death certificates and his guns, except for 2 pieces of furniture that were tore up and smelled like cat pee, a tv that didn't work and 2 other big furniture items. All that had to be burned. She was ordered not... Read more »
You need to file contempt charges(AKA Rule To Show Cause). Go to the clerk of court tell them what you need to file and maybe they have a form. If they don’t, type up a doc that has a similar heading to the others, number your paragraphs and say what happened in one sentence each. Ask for a...Read more »
Property deed is still in both of our names. He recently wanted me to sign a contract for people to buy it on contract however the mortgage company said that was a breach of our loan so I declined to sign contract for sale. I have since learned he had his lawyer draw up new contract for sale and... Read more »
You would file contempt charges against him if your order states he needs to take the house out of your name. Sounds like he has bad credit now so you’d have to ask the Judge to order the sale of the house.
This is not a question; a litigant in this situation needs an attorney who will demand statements of retirement accounts, by subpoena if necessary. Both the attorney and client need to feel satisfied that all discovery has been exchanged. In Lake County a “readiness certificate” must be filed...Read more »
You don’t. Having bank accounts separated is also irrelevant unless by agreement. Therefore, you can protect yourself by agreement only, no other method is foolproof. I would hire an attorney who would negotiate this with your spouse or wait until you have time to negotiate after filing.
Yes. You cannot get divorced in IN for 60 days post filing so it would be assumed you would file before the property settlement. In mediation you might do the two simultaneously but you still have to wait 60 days.
I highly doubt it. A decree has to be issued. If you haven’t re wives the decree either you were unreachable or it was never filed. If in Indiana call the office at 219-508-8607 Tuesday. I’m in another stare call the clerk of the court.
It’s possible. If your spouse lives in the old County you can keep it there, but you don’t technically have the residency requirements for three months after you move. Within the 3 months you could transfer by agreement.
First of all, most courts won’t let you finalize your divorce until paternity is proven, and that means the baby will have to be born. If he is violent with you, ask for a protective order. That way with the protective order in effect when your divorce is finalized, it will be easier to show...Read more »
If you have an order that says you have joint residential custody, you might be able to get the police to help you get your children. If you have joint legal custody but not residential, you’ll need to file for emergency custody.
