She wants me to pay maintenance until she is licensed and can sell, probably by year end. If I move out and have to pay for apartment and new bills, how would maintenance be calculated if all my income is spent on rent/mortgage/my bills/her bills? Could she be forced to get a FT job to help support... Read more »
The property sits on an acre of land on my mother-in-laws farm. What would happen if my husband and I divorced? Since she doesn't live with us I feel as if she shouldn't have ties in the share value of the home. Also, what would happen if my mother-in- and father-in-law divorced? Would he... Read more »

He was severely mentally abusive to the point I had to see several specialists because they thought... Read more »
One of the children is under joint custody, and the report for one of the incidents has been substantiated by CPS (he admitted to hitting the other child - who is fully in our custody, not related to her ex - with a dog leash). The other records indicate abuse may still be present with the child... Read more »
They are confidential records but are certainly the court should know about them (especially if the CPS case was before the same court). Idk why the lawyer would not submit them or make the court aware of them unless it is possibly a matter of strategy and timing. You should ask.
That is to say, a contract that spells out how everything would be divided in the case of a divorce, not filed immediately, but would be upheld by the courts in the case of either party petition for divorce in the future
You have to file a petition for dissolution of marriage and have it served on him by certified mail restricted delivery, sheriff or special bailiff. Once that is done, you will have full access to the court.
We were married in 1995 and he was deported in 1997. I did live in Chile off and on for 8 years but came home in 2007 with our 3 children and NEVER looked back. Two are over 18 and one is almost 15.
