It was his house,he sold it,even if her name was on it or it was gonna be left to her in his will. If inheritance cant be shared by divorcing spouses... Read more »

The down payment by dad is non-marital in nature and will be restored to his daughter. After that, the proceeds will be divided 50/50.

You might be able to but without concrete proof the better move might be to report it to CPS and let them investigate first.

She still has an ownership interest in the house regardless of how long she’s been gone so she can still come and go as she pleases. The money her dad put down is a non marital interest that will be restored to her by the court. The best thing to do is get the divorce filed and moving so you... Read more »

She would be entitled to come back to the house, unless there is a court order, saying she is not. If you are having issues over property, division and money, and her returning to the home, I suggest you hire a lawyer and file for divorce or if you’ve already filed for divorce file a motion in...

Our families health insurance is paid for out of my paycheck. My husband and I separated. Is he responsible for paying me his portion and half of our children’s portion of the insurance?

Legally, you can’t keep him from coming back. Best to get the divorce filed quickly, get the house divided and buy him out of his share.

Ideally you should hire an attorney who practices both immigration and family law. This way the attorney will be able to make sure the grounds for the divorce are appropriate (limiting your wife's ability to sponsor herself for a green card) and protect you as to any potential spousal support...

My husband and I are separated. He is currently in jail for violating the restraining order I have against him. I want to sell the house, pay off the mortgage, and split the profit with him. Am I legally able to do any of this if I am on the deed but not the mortgage loan?
answered on Aug 25, 2022
Yes. The deed concerns ownership. If you are divorcing and he is in jail, you will need authority from the court to sell the property.

You need to file a petition for dissolution of marriage in the circuit court for the county in which you reside. Support and custody will be dealt with after you file your petition.
