Q: 

husband abandoned me-need him to pay money

A:  "Isn't he responsible for half our bills? Half the credit card debt? Half the bankruptcy fee?" Probably. Don't sign aything until you can get a hold of legal aid. Some lawyers give free consultations so call around. For now try getting your fiances in order. You need to get a job asap. Are you getting child support for your daughter from her dad? close any joint acounts and open up accounts in your own name. I would not sign anything until you talk to an attorney. You've been free from moment he left to seek spousal and child support. Not sure why you wouldn't have rented out rooms after he left though, and worked as many jobs as it would take to address at least part of the $$$ situation. If you filed for bankruptcy or were in...

Q: 

wife soliciting for prostitution

A:  "... my wife of three years has served me the divorce paper without me being aware of her doing so...." Er, please clarify; evidently you ARE aware. "... and some men talking about paying her for good time." And I trust that you have evidence that she was soliciting, vs. simply "some men talking about paying her for a good time." As for how you bring it up, not sure what you mean. You discuss with a divorce attorney whether it's relevant vis-a-vis her seeking "money [you] do not have." Note that bad behavior on the part of a spouse is not penalized in terms of marital property division. You don't give details about the money she's seeking or what it represents,...

Q: 

IMen plz tell me why you do things like..cheat on ur wife and get mistress pregnant too?

A:  Why haven''t you served him the divorce papers yet? I think you''re with the wrong kind of man--I''ve never even known someone who''s behaved this way. People cheat for all sorts of different reasons and some don''t even need a reason. Cheating is a deal breaker for me. I''d serve him with divorce papers and let her have him. What goes around, comes around. Once a cheater, always a cheater. Move On I have only been with my wonderful wife of 14 years and never come close to cheating so I guess all men are not like the one you are with! ! ! DON''T GENERALIZE MEN So to answer your questions: I have no idea because I am not like your man! i''d...

Q: 

How can you serve your spouse a divorce from jail?

A:  The laws regarding dissolution of marriage vary in each state.  However, all courts require both parties to be present in court or be represented by legal counsel.  Your case also depends on whether this is a contested divorce proceeding or not.  If your spouse agrees to an uncontested divorce, neither of you will have to appear in court.  Some states require the petitioner to attend the final hearing in an uncontested divorce, but the respondent is not required to appear.  Most jurisdictions require that the petitioner filing for divorce must have lived in that state for 180 days prior to filing.  The best way to approach this is to contact the clerk’s office of the...

Q: 

Can my husband pull this off and get away with it?

A:  Yes, its possible that he could get away with any number of "scams" unless someone stops him. One way to do that would be to regularly check (at least once or twice a week) with the courthouse in the county where you believe he may file, to see if a case has been filed there. Then you would have the opportunity to get copies of the paperwork and make the necessary challenges against it. Of course, it should go without saying that you should thoroughly read any paperwork that he asks you to sign.....and refuse to sign it if it contains inaccurate facts or is inequitable....

Q: 

Division of Property

A:  You don't take advice from the enemy! You get your own paid expert gladiator.... Odds are your investment in his education is not recoverable--UNLESS it resulted in some sort of formal license--and that property is up for debate Don't know your state but his separate property arguement as to home may get weaker the more you ca show you put into actual home equity--the fact that you bought groceries while he paid mortgage may not help you--but this varies by state as to if property transmuted in whole or in part to community asset. You probably cannot require him to get a real full time job--BUT if you can properly posture his earning ability the court may take that as his imputed income. Say the guy just completed pharmacy school and pharmists in your area start at about 200,000 a...

Q: 

Can I file a civil lawsuit?

A:  Why don''t you just have the process server for the divorce action sit outside the residence where the child is being held until they locate the wife to serve her? They started in Alaska, moved to Oregon, then Washington, and now word is they are headed to Florida. The process server in the past has knocked on the door and someone answers and they ask for my wife. They are told that there isn''t anyone by that name and shut the door. I paid a PI for several days to find them. They see our son and the boyfriend outside of the house but not my wife. I have now run out of money for PI''s. I''ve thought about trying to talk to the DA in my town but I don''t know if they...

Q: 

Being ripped off by a Collection Agency.. HELP?

A:  At this point they are probably bluffing about the court action, but let them go to court and you take all the PROOF you have with you. Keep it clean cut when explaining and to the point. Even though well written your post is to long so try and condense it for a court appearance explanation IF that should happen. At this point the only thing I would say to them would be "let''s let a Judge decide this issue". Do those receipts you received at least have a printed (not hand written) Company name on them? Please say yes! thanks for the replies.. i agree with you about the wordiness of my post.. gonna have to work on that one LOL and yes, actually, there is a rubber stamp with the company name on it at the top of the page on some of the receipts.. two receipts are without a stamp or...
