(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.

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.
No kids, but solely involves a single dollar amount he was to pay. He has not paid it and his lawyer is failing to respond to any phone call and email I make and send. I was going to file a contempt motion but was not sure this was the best route.
I had until 12/16 to be paid the money and move out. I did so and signed a quit claim deed in order to be considered by my new mortgage company for a loan on a new house. Now the ex won’t sign the loan assumption papers or refinance... what can I do?
Your redress is through the court that ordered your divorce. Your ex has violated the court order. You will file a Rule To Show Cause, and because he has violated the order you might be able to get an attorney to represent you to get an order demanding he pay your fees. If you don’t want to hire...Read more »
Our divorce decree does not state whose address is her legal address. My address is used for health insurance as I carry it and her dad's address is used for school. She will be getting her license soon and we are not sure what address should be used.
My soon to be ex-wife wife was ordered by the Judge over the PO Hearing to return my personal property that she was refusing to return. Her parents were to drop it off at the end of my parents driveway and they did not do it. I wrote a letter to the Judge requesting that he hold them in Contempt of... Read more »
There's not enough information in your question to say for sure what the document pertains to, but in general, a Motion for Rule to Show Cause is what is filed when one party is requesting that the court find another party in contempt for violation of an order.
