Part of our property settlement agreement in final divorce papers was for my ex-spouse to pay me $800 a month for 12 months for his share of the marital debt. The first payment was due in June of this year. He has made all payments on time up until this month, and he is now a week late. What is the... Read more »

Unfortunately, if you do not quitclaim the house to her, and the order required it, then you are in contempt. Usually, when one assumes all of the indebtedness, that just means that they continue to make the payments on the property. From the looks of it, there should have been a plan in place that...Read more »

Based on the facts as you've told them, you have several grounds for a divorce. Feel free to reach out to any attorney on this forum, as most of us are happy to provide a free consultation to discuss your case, and advise you accordingly.
Although you do not necessarily need an attorney with you in a divorce action, it is highly advisable, particularly if there are allegations of fault, and even more so if the other party (in this case, your wife) is likely to seek custody and child support.
In Mississippi, you can receive either an irreconcilable difference divorce (where both agree) or one based on cause (desertion, etc.). Assuming that you live in Mississippi, you would be eligible for a divorce in the county in which you live.
You can, depending on the circumstances. Typically, to change or establish child support, you will need to show that there have been a change in circumstances that warrant modification of the divorce decree to establish child support. Of course, the wording of the divorce decree is also important,...Read more »
She has received all monies due her by me. I have been divorced for almost 2 yrs and she refuses to payoff, sell, or refinance the house we owned together while married. I have moved to another state and am wanting to buy a house and this mortgage is on my credit report. If she decides not to pay... Read more »
Since you got divorced a few years ago, as part of the property settlement agreement, there should be a provision that speaks specifically to 1) who keeps the former marital home; and 2) who pays the mortgage on the home. In most property settlement agreements, and with most divorces, each party...Read more »
You likely need to consult an attorney on this one, so that they can get some additional information. The first question that I have is whether the divorce decree stated who got the house, and who was responsible for the mortgage on the property. That naturally leads into the second question, which...Read more »
Generally, judges do not like it when a parent allows their children to spend the night when there is a member of the opposite sex also staying the night, unless the other person is related by blood or marriage.
On Jan 17th 2018, the wife ask me to leave the house, since then Ive been staying with friends and family, I am unemployed, and asked her if I can come home and stay in the spare bedroom until we get a divorce. She gives me a "not no, but hell no". isnt this still my house as well?
Not necessarily. It tends to be a bit trickier to get an annulment rather than a divorce. In order to get an annulment, certain criteria have to be met, and those criteria are different than those required to get a divorce. Your best bet would be to contact an attorney to give them a rundown of the...Read more »
