Q: the court finds no community property other than personal effect has been accumulated by the parties?
My future ex-wife and myself are doing a online divorce since we have been apart since 2004 and this was on the final divorce paper. I raised all of our children myself with no help from her and all our property was divided back in 2004 so I want to make sure I dont have to divide everything I accumulated since 2004 since it was all purchase by myself. Also is there a lawyer that can look at these final divorce papers before I sign? The note listed above is what is written on final paper
A: Are you sure she is going to agree to not trying to obtain anything you have acquired since 2004? Doing an online divorce may not be the best route to take if there are any concerns about her trying to take assets. It’s a good idea to take the papers you have done online and have an attorney at least look them over to ensure that everything has been properly done. Also, an attorney can get more information about your situation and provide you with guidance. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
