The law allows you to go back to any former name when the divorce is granted. So if you have a previous married name, you can return to that name. If you have no former name other than your maiden name, you can still change your name to anything by filing a name change case. Basically, you say...Read more »
I claimed her because she's 18 and lives with me full time since June and half time before then. That's 91/2 months of the year. I interpreted that as she is no longer eligible for her to claim on taxes, but she's eligible for me to claim. Am I wrong, she is threatening to go to court.
It really depends on the wording of your decree. The IRS has its own rules about which parent can claim the children on their taxes and they often don't care what a decree says. However, and this is very important, a divorce decree is an enforceable court order and disobeying it can put you in...Read more »

Contact a family law attorney to assist you in...Read more »
He took me off joint bank accounts, cell phone plans and car insurance this past fall 8/21-12/21. 1/5 he turned off access to hot water and washer and dryer. I had surgery 1/7 and I'm currently staying with family in Missouri recovering.
In most situations there are automatic injunctions put in place to prevent the changing of bank accounts, insurance, and utilities and the like. You need to consult with an attorney on this so that you can be represented fully. To your other question, yes you can ask, and file a joint affidavit...Read more »
from paternal cousin who is going thru an alleged agreed mediated divorce with my maternal second cousin [aka “daughter”] - anything you can do about his narcissistic behavior besides ignore it? Yep. Wrap your head around that one. Lol
you would want to consult an Oklahoma attorney, but my read would be 1) this is one divorcing person with another--let their attorneys handle it; if they have decided not to use attorneys, be aware that the person texted is getting free information, ammunition possibly. Why stop the flow. (In...Read more »

While I can respect your position you need to contact an attorney to assist you with this because this is not something you want to try to do alone.

If you were guardian of your mother you could pursue her action on her behalf. Also a Durable Power of Attorney drafted correctly would allow you to proceed on her behalf. You can't "take it into your own hands" as the cause of action belongs to your Mother. Good Luck!
