Q: 

How to get a mutual divorce

A:  If you have no idea how to start you probably need a lawyer. But you can start by calling the family law facilitator in your state and asking these questions. ONE of you has to have lived in the county for at least 6 mos. "My wife and I have agreed to get a mutual divorce." As opposed to? "How do we go about it?" A "friendly" divorce CAN BE a do-it-yourself project, but the prudent path is to hire a lawyer. If you were hoping someone will walk you through the process, that simply won't happen. "What all agreements should we be looking at?" A properly drafted marital settlement agreement that...

Q: 

getting my ex to comply with the divorce orders and my right

A:  Laymans guess: 1. The exact words about the joint account may matter but unless they directed you to turn over account  as a whole to EX I fail to see the point about the joint account--and its extremely hard to divine that you stole from own account--at worst you failed to follow the order --but your post suggest it was HE who failed to follow the order to get your name off!    Sis is probably full of hot air in defense of brother! 2. In a sense your lawyer blew it not to link title transfer  of home to his completion of refinance  and to set a reasonable deadline  to get said steps done together . (or perhaps its in fine print but you forgot to post it.) The error is so bad as to invite a debate as to its being...

Q: 

How to set-up an external audit

A:  Dear Timothy, Congratulations for being proactive and taking your responsibility as a Board member that way. Having an audit may or may not be a requirement for your organization. If your organization is required to have an audit because of the level of revenue, it would take care of your concern. Make sure that your accounant takes vacation and someone else takes over his or her responsibilities. This is a strong internal control that each organization should implement. Below I am including a helpful document issued by geocities.com which I believe will help you out with your concerns and role as well. FINANCIAL SYSTEMS THAT PROTECT NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS:   Management is responsible for making sure the organization implements and maintains appropriate...

Q: 

How to file for a divorce if you can''t find your husband?

A:  "During that time I have lost contact with him and can longer find him." Have you tried? "I would like to file for a divorce but I wouldn't know where to serve him papers nor do I know if he has tried to divorce me either. How is the best way to handle this situation?" The best way to handle the situation is to track down your husband. Any private investigator should be able to handle it (and can also check if there's any record of a divorce initiated by him)....

Q: 

How to bring up Landlords criminal past in court

A:  Why? What does his history have to do with being a landlord that you rented from? How do drug charges pertain to this situation? "he is still known as a very shady character who takes the law into his own hands when it comes to tenants." What proof do you have that you could take to court? is normally NOT admissible to prove poor character of the other party. Your state's Rules of Evidence will govern this. Conviction of certain felonies may be admissible to attack credibility. You would normally get this evidence in, if possible, through certified copies of the judgments of conviction and through examination of the landlord. If you are using a good attorney he or she probably will be able to make sure the court gets a whiff of this guys...

Q: 

lawyer trying to mess up the case?

A:  "all we have is our gut feelings and the word of the client who is mentally ill and often gets things confused." If you are so concerned, have a guardian appointed for the relative and then the guardian can deal directly with the attorney and sort out the issues. The relative does have a court appointed guardian who is also their lawyer. This is how it works: the relative was charged with the crime which I''m sure is a civil case, not criminal. So they got court appointed lawyer "1", the relative did have a court appointed guardian but he was not at all sympathetic to the mental illness and I guess is no longer the guardian (I''m not sure because we haven''t seen him in over 2 years). Then the relative was charged with...

Q: 

i''m not a US citizen, how I file for the divorce

A:  I don't see why you need to go to the US. Assuming that there are no marital property division issues or children, why don't you just investigate what it would take to divorce him in Ukraine.  In the U.S. the person seeking a divorce has to serve the legal papers on the foreign spouse, whenever possible.  But, even then, there may be a process in which you can divorce him by publication if you can't locate him.     Well for starters to get remarried while still married is probably a criminal act in hubbys home state and may make his new marriage void as well . Is his new "wife" aware of his criminal acts? And her precarious legal position as not...
