She had 2 years to get refinanced and now it 4 months past that. I keep filling motions because it was already meditated, but she won't comply and won't agree to a new mediation. My last motion to go back to the original order has been denied. What can I do ? She's just prolonging... Read more »
We are going through a divorce and the town has now rented a property purchased by us, the town to him for one year. This act caused many problems and turned an amicable divorce ugly with children involved.
I am sorry to hear about your situation. This question is not covered under domestic relations law. It sounds as though your question may relate to conflict of interest employment issues. You may wish to post in employment law.
You do not necessarily need a separation agreement just because you and your spouse are separating. You will need a "Separation Agreement" in order to finalize a divorce. This agreement contains details regarding your property division and support issues. Leaving the house is not usually...Read more »
how do we go about changing the custody agreement? the state we moved from is too far away to fly out just to alter one part of the divorce. I live in Colorado now and he and the children are in New Mexico.
I cosigned for an ex partner, the relationship was abusive and I no longer have any contact with her at all. She has since missed 23 payments on that car and is still affecting my life. How do I go about getting my name off of the car and not hurting my credit anymore than it is already hurt?
If you are married, you can file for dissolution and property settlement. If not, when you co-signed, you agreed to pay if she did not. Absent her consent to refinance in her own name, you are legally obligated to pay if she does not.
You will have a claim on the increase in value that occured during the marriage. That increase is marital property, subject to an equitable (meaning "fair", not necessarily "equal) distribution in the divorce. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.
My ex husband filed a motion this week to modify medical decision making of our daughter. Our divorce decree states we must go to mediation prior to filing a motion but he and his attorney skipped this step. Could this be considered contempt?
I do not think contempt is the right response. You could file a response pointing out the failure to go to mediation. The court is likely to order mediation in any case. You should get a lawyer to help you with this.

You can argue that he is capable of working full time. He could respond as to why he is not working full time. It is always helpful to have an attorney with spousal maintenance because although there are maintenance guidelines, they are discretionary with the court. An attorney can make arguments...Read more »
I am sorry to hear about your situation. The Court is limited in time so does not do a detailed comparison of a financial statement to other documents. If there is a discrepancy, it is the responsibility of the person alleging it to bring it to the Court's attention. It would be important to...Read more »

I am sorry to hear about your situation. In divorce, you split marital equity. Title does not matter if the home was obtained during the marriage. if he had it before the marriage then you still have an interest in the appreciation of value during the marriage.
This depends on what the decree says, not just what you requested. IF the decree requires him to get you removed, it may be contempt IF he has the ability to do so. However, most lenders will not remove a co-signer unless the loan is refinanced.
Technically everything you both own right now is still marital property so you each have an interest in that unless it was obtained before the marriage. You can ask for child support to start from the date of filing if you have children under age 19. You may also be eligible for spousal maintenance.
The equity that existed in the house at the time of marriage is your separate property. However, any increase in that equity that occurred during the marriage is marital property, subject to an equitable distribution by the court. Equitable means fair, not necessarily equal. You should get a lawyer...Read more »
