I am in the process of divorce and no custody agreements have been set. I do not want him as a friend to post or comment on my Facebook. But I can still use Messenger to let him video chat our child. Will this risk even joint custody?
If we do get divorced, he wants to file online for it's cheaper, faster, and easier. But I would have to agree to all his terms he has set out.

I agree with the other attorney's answer. Most of the time the Court will "break the trust" especially if the trust is revokable and for estate planning purposes. One the court decides if it will break the trust then it will decided on the designation of the property ( separate or...View More
