He doesn't show up for court so I don't know if he even knows that he's been ordered to pay me. I am trying to do this without a lawyer since it is so expensive and the money actually is owed to my daughter (for reimbursing tuition) and the legal fees would almost be as much as he... Read more »
You may be able to obtain this type of order from the court, but as you were advised by the judge, you'll need to do it properly, and you will need to be able to prove that your ex-husband was served. If your ex-husband has failed to comply with the provisions of prior orders, he could be held...Read more »
I used to pay the mortgage and a credit card, but he has taken over payment of both and I need to get our decree amended to show this as I am looking to purchase a house and need it for underwriting purposes.
You can file a petition with the court for an agreed amendment to the original order. However, it would be highly advisable that you at least sit down with - if not retain - an experienced attorney to help you walk through this.
Myex filed a protection order as part of divorce dissolution. 14 pictures of sunburn entered as evidence. Have the texts stating I put sunscreen on the kids several times. Just want to show that to the judge. Also is sunburn really enough to keep an active father from his children for almost a... Read more »
However, the property is in both of our names. Infidelity on his part has caused me to research my potential options going forward and I would like to discuss my legal options.

The issues you raise are complex ones, and detailed answers would require a more in-depth review of your situation.

(home, recreational property, 401Ks, etc.). Minor child just turned 17 years old. I need to start the divorce process. How should I proceed/what do I do? Covid 19 protocol for face to face meetings with a lawyer? I never thought it would come to this.
Based on the information provided in your question it would depend on the lawyer if they are doing face to face meetings or not. Additionally, no one ever is prepared or ready for this in their life, so finding a lawyer in your area that fits your needs is important.
I am unsure how to properly fill out several sections of the documents required, such as the summons and divorce decree section. I would love some assistance so that it is done properly before I submit it to my county courthouse.
You need to use whatever your legal last name is at this time. Also, I would highly recommend that you seek assistance from an experienced divorce attorney. While the courts do allow parties to go through this process without representation, generally this is not DIY territory.
It is not clear what your question is. However, if your ex-boyfriend owns the house outright, he will have the right to force you to leave. Whether or not an eviction would need to be filed would depend on a variety of factors, and there is not enough information in your question to answer that....Read more »
My friend lived in Indiana. She got married and had a baby with her husband. He didn't want to sign the birth certificate. They are now separated and they have not established paternity (but he is in fact the biological father). Does he have any rights to the baby even though they are married?
If a child is born during a marriage, the husband is presumed to be the father, although that can be rebutted. If the husband and your friend are still married, he does have custody/parenting time right, although exactly what they are would need to be decided by a court.
My house, car, and bills are all in my name. He had absolutely nothing but a bag of clothes when I met him. I already had my car when I met him, and built and moved into a new home right before we got married. He does work and contribute to the household, but I dont feel after 2½ years of... Read more »

Yes, unfortunately, the apartment can still come after you for the debt that you signed on for with your husband, and any of your other creditors for the same type of situation can also come after you. While your divorce agreement is a court order and does make your ex-husband liable for the debts,...Read more »
At least one of the parties will need to have lived in the county of filing at least 3 months prior to the date of filing. Therefore, if they are both living in northern Indiana and have been for some time, they should file in their county there.
After I filled for divorce one week after, I was obligated to leave the family house with a PO. is this considered the final separation?, or is final separation when the Divorce its is settled in the court?
She was initially self admitted, however is being transferred from a stress center to "another facility" that the staff will not disclose to any one. The will not even confirm that she is at the stress center at this time, although her mother confirms that she is there.
My ex claims she has 3 jobs! 1 babysitting job under the table for 2 friends. 1 babysitting job for a legit company down the street. And 1 job at the YMCA paying less than $9/hr and less than 15 hours a week. She says her total income is $215/week. I can get her a bus driving job making $608/wk.... Read more »
She filed for divorce in a county we do NOT have residence in (her mom and dad's home). She moved herself there with my son under the pretense that she would be seeing a specialist for his health and doing work while her parents babysit. I was more than taken by surprise by the divorce... Read more »
Based on your question the residency requirement is 3 months in any county in the State of Indiana. You are still the biological parent and should have custody and parenting time. You need to seek counsel to address these matters.
