Hi, I was just wondering if a marriage certificate supersedes a custody order
For example, a man and a woman unmarried have a child, and then they go to court and have an order signed by a judge, joint, physical and legal and a parenting plan set in place and then they get married and then... View More
The Parenting Agreement IS relevant. However, it's relevance goes down, by the day. Because what the divorce court judge is supposed to do is decide what is in the best interests of the minor child. The Parenting Agreement is very relevant if it's only 4-5 months old when you divorce...View More

A QDRO does not override a Divorce Decree, it merely directs the Plan Administrator on how to divide a 401k or military or state retirement. It's simply the "instructions" on how to do it. So, the answer is probably YES you would have the right at this point to get a large portion...View More
As to your ex’s belongings. What I recommend is that you send him a letter, while he’s in jail, telling him that he has 30 days to have someone (preferably family) pick up his belongings and that if no one comes within 30 days, you will dispose of his things as you see fit.
He won't get help and I fear for my life. Can we file something with his mental and start divorce? He wants to hurt me after 55 years of caring for him and it has come to this. I am truly scared of him. What are my rights?

Yes, these two documents, Civil Protection Orders sometime continue through the divorce proceeding. However, the Civil Protection Order is a "stand alone document," and doesn't need a divorce proceeding to survive. The statute says that after the first continuance of the CPO, you...View More
If I were you, I would file a Motion for Contempt. This motion will put him on notice quickly, that you are NOT playing games and if he continues to play "keep away," he may actually end of spending time in jail.
