Thirty years ago, as part of our divorce settlement, my ex husband signed a mortgage against our farmland to pay me $30,000 over ten years. In return I signed a QCD. He never made the payments and after three years filed for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy court upheld my mortgage and set up a... Read more »

Likely but you better move fast. Call an attorney who does estates.
My spouse told me if I filed she’d sign. She now tells me she’s not signing anything. We have no kids, and no assets at all. Been married 2 years. I’m trying to file electronically in ND, but don’t know what type of forms I need to file as the clerk can’t advise, and self service site... Read more »

I understand you believe you're capable of doing this yourself, but it seems the reality is that's not going to be possible because: 1) She refuses to sign; and 2) You can't file a divorce uncontested because, factually, it's not if the other person refuses to sign. You should... Read more »

You may be looking for 14-07-11 and 14-07-11 of the North Dakota Century Code. But the better answer is that you need an attorney to help you file for a divorce. Divorce can be quick and relatively painless if settled by way of agreement or collaborative family law.
My ex recieved a letter from the court stating that they would not sign off on the child support because its lower than the calculated amount

You need to use the child support guidelines to calculate the correct amount and resubmit.

This question cannot be answered here as it is highly dependent on the judgment itself.
Son in a nasty divorce in WA state. Soon to be ex-wife has moved to MT with kids. We live in ND. She will not let us call or talk to our grandchildren and won't allow them to call us. Is there anything we can do?

I am a family law attorney in North Dakota. I believe you will need talk to an attorney in Washington, if that is where the divorce is located.

There is not enough information in your question to provide an answer. Based on your question, it sounds like your filing may have been rejected due to a jurisdictional issue.
My spouse and I cannot agree on how to divide things in the divorce. He feels I should be left with nothing, which has left my couch surfing for the last 6 months. My lawyer sent a response to his 6 weeks ago and we still do not have a response. When I talk with my lawyer all she says is "well... Read more »

No. Child support is according to court order and the child support guidelines.

Ultimately, the division of assets will be at the discretion of the judge. In a divorce, you should usually (but not always) expect that retirement accounts will be divided in some manner.
Am I also required to pay the heating, water, internet, etc if I do not live in the house?

My ex husband filed the divorced and I can’t claim nor answer because I don’t have a lawyer. It was granted by default.

Possibly. However, this tends to be an uphill battle and you should not assume that the judge will allow your case to be reopened. I see that you are in Illinois, please note that the information I have provided is specific to North Dakota.

A judge may consider your preference at the judge's discretion. However, the judge is not required to agree with your preference.

North Dakota does not require that parties split assets equally. Instead, assets are split 'equitably'.

I answered your question on the other post you have made. Hope it helps.
So we haven't lived like a marriage. But he's getting out In April and he is threating me on taking my daughter away from me. But he found out I moved on and pregnant with a new baby. so I just need to know if there's anything I can do so he won't take my daughter from me.

He cannot simply take your child. The child custody arrangement is up to the court. Usually, the court prefers to provide each child with parenting time.
If both parents agree that child support isnt needed can they legally get by without it.
