The best way to get the kind of help you clearly need is to hire an attorney to...Read more »
I am separated from my husband and we are going forward with a divorce. Currenrly he is paying child support and alimony but taking out taxes and medical. I’m unsure of how it’s calculated and what my rights are

It sounds like you don't actually have any custody/visitation orders (and child support) issued by the court. If you want to get some control and predictability over the situation, you should get formal custody/visitation orders. You can start by filing a petition for parentage and a request for...Read more »
Bought the house in 1983, married in 1990, added 2nd story in 1992, upgraded original floor in 2004 all with zero financial support from her. Refinanced many times but with just my name on the title. Do have a current HELOC under both names.
Because you purchased the house before the date of marriage, it is your separate property. The community acquired an interest in this property resulting from mortgage payments and improvements made during the marriage. That interest is not necessarily equal to 50% of the home's total value.
I think my husband will be difficult to talk to once we start this process. We bought a house together but it's not paid off. I only make about $1500 a month right now. Would the kids and I be able to stay in our house? I want to have equal custody rights, though I will probably be with the kids a... Read more »

There is an existing order and wage garnishment in place. The balance of back child support is in excess of 49 thousand dollars, will his wages still be garnished after she turns 18? If not how does that balance ever get paid off?
Support for the 18 year old should end when he graduates from high school, not just on the reaching of age 18. The arrears however, continues to be owed until it is paid off. The wage garnishment can continue for that purpose. You could even go back to court and get the garnishment amount...Read more »

His status as an adopted child is irrelevant to any part of your question. The impediment to his legal right to sue is his age. He will need a guardian ad litem to sue on his behalf. That being said, it is completely unclear what it is you think would be the basis for a lawsuit.
My wife and I have been married for a year I currently reside in Sacramento California and she lives down in Los Angeles she has a 3 year old son. Her and the kids father have a joint custody agreement where the mother has the son the majority of the time.
Informal agreements are not court orders. If you want something enforceable you need to get a court order or judgment. If what you have is a court order or part of a judgment then it should not be modified informally and only modified by a new court order.
Hi petitioner filed for separation of marriage (FL100) and then filed motion to dismiss 20 days later. Do I need to file a response if petitioner filed motion to dismiss shortly after she filed for separation of marriage?
A motion to dismiss? If she filed a petition and you have not yet responded, all she needs to file is a Request for Dismissal. It is not a motion and there is no hearing. If the case is dismissed, you do not need to file your response. If she filed an actual motion and there is a hearing date...Read more »
