After 2 years of marriage, my husband wants a divorce. I have no money. Husband has about 300,000 in assets.
I want to make a small reasonable request so I can have money to rent me somewhere to live. I live in TN.

That short marriage does not give you an interest in his separate properties. Instead you should have your lawyer demand what you need to transition for the next five years, and not agree to an ID divorce until you get what you want. Without an agreement, he will have to prove grounds for the... Read more »

We made 1 court appearance and that was to get permission to run an add in the local paper. Soon thereafter, my attorney quit,... Read more »

I assume the $1,000 does not include your filing fees, service fee, publication fee, or the ad litem’s fee.
Even then, $1,000 is awfully skinny to start a divorce case particularly if the attorney knew in advance you didn’t know where your wife is.
While you can sue, you might... Read more »
He marked "hand directly to parent" on the papers and when I mentioned this to him he said he's just going to wait for them to come out of his check on its own. Do I need to take him back to court or what do I do because he doesn't want to pay it and the papers was filed March 2, 2023.

It sounds like you did not go to Court, so you do not know what if anything is going on. Call Court and find out when the divorce decree was entered. Order for CS starts then. If no case at Court, then you are not divorced. If CS is not paid, then you must file a Petition to hold him in... Read more »

You should discuss all this with your attorney. But if she passed during the divorce proceeding, then there's no more divorce. Depending on her estate, you may and likely are entitled to some, if not all, of her assets. The issue would need to go to probate in Illinois since that's where... Read more »

Annulments are very rare and difficult to obtain. You might have grounds, but if you can get him to agree to an Irreconcilable Differences Divorce, it will be far cheaper and quicker. Hire a competent attorney to advise about this, including looking for divorce grounds in the near future.
Home is in both names he is disabled and gets ssdi. Can I force him to sell the home and give me half? Or does the laws protect him on this?

Need some more information. But it sounds like you've been divorced but still have the house? If that's the case, an attorney would need to look at the deed. A divorce would sever the tenants by entirety status and make it tenants in common. An attorney would also need to review the... Read more »
We want to file uncontested because we both want to keep paying on the home and reside here until we are financially able to relocate separately. Is it possible to file uncontested in our situation?
answered on Jul 14, 2022
Yes. It's possible. But you can also sell the house during the divorce and split the proceeds and move on. First recommendation is that you get everything in writing in a proper marital dissolution agreement, which you'll need anyways. Second, you would be wise to get an attorney to... Read more »

Start calling various Court Clerks with divorce jurisdiction in any County where he may have been a Party. It could be in another State. Another Relative probably has an idea where the Divorce occurred. It may help to suspect a certain time frame.

You should have called law enforcement. You might be able to file an Action To Recover Personal Property in General Sessions. Use TN terms only, not foreign. Otherwise you will need to file for a Divorce and have to prove grounds.
America under the pretext of marrying him and divorcing five months after her arrival, what is the difference in the law or legislation in this matter?
Wife is pregnant by someone else
answered on May 26, 2023
Yes and it will have to be addressed. Husband is presumptive, legal father liable for support. Probably need a divorce for adultery and get a paternity test ordered.
answered on May 26, 2023
You either need an agreement, or at least two witnesses that will testify that he is abusing you.

It likely has to do with title to property.
For example, if she was awarded a motor vehicle in your divorce decree but the title registration was not changed before she moved, she might have recorded the decree in Texas so she could register the motor vehicle in her sole name in Texas.

It depends on the divorce judgment and the equity involved. But you may be able to file for Partition. Hire an attorney.
This is the house she and her husband live in. Can she sell the house, he is not on the deed. This is in Tennessee
answered on Jan 16, 2023
From your limited facts, I don't see why not. If she's solely on the deed, she could convey it. If there's a pending divorce, the situation would be different. Consult local counsel to address any concerns you may have.
