What you were told is not true. Spousal support is not dependent on children being born and raised during the marriage. It is the spouse's need and the other spouse's ability to pay, among other factors.
This depends on what your divorce decree says. Your divorce decree probably gives him a deadline by which to get his belongings. If I were you, I would reach out to his family again with a drop dead deadline and tell him that you will get rid of the belongings by a certain date if they do not come...Read more »
I do not have the $3000 to $10,000 for an attorney for a divorce. He has not contributed to the household since stopping his direct deposit the last week of November 2021.

You would have to follow the Tennessee procedures to make the Georgia judgment into a Tennessee judgment. Once the judgment is "domesticated" into Tennessee, you can move for a writ of garnishment in that court. The place to start is the Tennessee statutes, more than likely online. You...Read more »
A notary should be a person not related or connected to the parties. That is not the ideal scenario when thousands of non-related notaries are available. If the case has not been finalized and the paperwork signed by a judge, I would redo all the documents and have a disinterested notary sign....Read more »

There are 3 children born during my marriage. 2 of them are my husband's biological children and 1 was born after we split. It is not my husband's biological child and he has never supported or raised this child in any way. What do I do regarding that child in the divorce process?
You need to speak to an attorney about this. It is possible to note the husband has no responsibility for the other child, but it must be done correctly. Legally, all children born during the marriage are legally the husband's.
The monies from the settlement were also deposited into a brand new account and the house bought from that account . The couple had been separated for 2 years already with an order of protection in place .
Any house purchased during the marriage is marital property. The court can decide to award the property to one party vs. the other or a certain percentage based on fairness. We are not a community property state.

The court cannot interfere in a marriage unless someone files for divorce or separation. So, he can take you off his insurance. The fact that he had threatened to do that while you are battling this illness probably tells you what should happen next. You should speak to an attorney immediately...Read more »
