Q: Married 12/2006. my husband recently diagnosed with HSV type 2, admitted to affair with prostitute starting 1/2010
A: Sure you can take it, I think the question is will you get into trouble. The answer to that depends on the circumstances and you should discuss it in detail with a divorce attorney prior to taking any action like this.
Q: How do you get a visitation agreement with the other party to be enforced?
A: Talk to your divorce attorney about bringing an action for failure to comply with the visitation agreement. Remember the court can always change issues on support and visitation for what is in the best interest of the child so if you bring up the issue, you may not like the results. You should discuss these risks with your lawyer before raising the issue in court.
Q: Can an ex-wife sue for payment of college for an 18 child and take father back to court for retirement benafter 10 years
A: One would have to look at the original documents and the circumstances but generally there is no obligation after 18 unless specified.
Q: Do husbands always pay the wifes lawyers bills
A: No, in fact some wives pay their husbands bills. Many times each pays their own.
Q: If there is no will, will the estate go to the new wife or the children of the decedent of homestead property?
A: life estate to new wife and remainder to children, unless wife makes election for 50%.
Q: My child has been adjudicated as an adult, he's seventeen Must i still pay child support?
A: You must file with the court to have your support changed.
Q: Inheritance money used for a house down payment that will be jointly owned by me and my husband?
A: You should either borrow the money from yourself where you and your spouse agree to the repayment or enter into a post nuptial agreement where you lay out the terms of how these funds will be used in the future. Be careful because when purchasing a homestead there are certain rights that a spouse has that if not waived in writing and properly cannot be orally agreed to.
Q: New husband has an exisitng will leaving everything to kids. If he dies is the new wife entitled to anything?
A: The new spouse, who is a surviving spouse, is entitled to 1/3 of the assets which are subject to the elective share, if the new spouse makes a timely election to take an elective share. The elective share assets are not the same as probate assets and is a complicated calculation so it would be important to discuss this with an attorney quickly to make the proper election.
Q: Can you rent a home that is in probate?
A: You can, but the home may not be a probate asset. You should look to see if it was determined to be homestead, if so, the home is not a probate assets. If the home was determined not to be probate the home can be rented by the PR.
