What happens if you have been married for 30 yrs. After med school and other business that has been built, what benefits does the woman have?

All I can say is documentation is everything. Write everything down and save for your court dates, save a paperwork and have it with you for each court date, again documentation is everything in this state. It took me 16 months to get divorced.

QUESTIONS

  • Divorce decree states my ex is to pay half of a credit card bill either in monthly payments or half of the balance. He is not paying me or the credit card company. The only payments he made were during the time we still lived together. I deducted his half of the payment from my half of the monthly bills. How can I get the court to enforce what is on the decree? Also, I no longer reside in the state of Arizona and do not have money for an attorney. Thank you.

  • My wife signed a online prenatal that was notarized that basically stated her debt is hers and mine is mine and her finances are hers and mine are mine. We tried to make it work for 3 1/2 years but it’s not working. I brought a house while we were married and put $75,000 down, all my money. We are both on mortgages though. She agreed if we divorced the $75,000 I put down. I would get back and would split any extra money from the sale of the house. Now she has changed her mind and wants to keep the house but there is no way she can buy me out. What are the chases I get my $75,000 back after
  • I got married to someone incarcerated in 2005, at the time I didn't know he had a life sentence. I soon heard that a marriage was not legal if someone had a life sentence or had to be consummated. In AZ there are no conjugal visits allowed. I was not ok with some things he was doing and I asked for a divorce in 2007 and stopped all contact. We do not have anything in common and want to know if I file for annulment or divorce and how to go about that, I would like to be divorced and get my maiden name restored. He stated that he will not give me a divorce or sign papers.
  • My husband is incarcerated and we have two children. I am in the process of submitting my petition for a dissolution of marriage and noticed we are required to complete a parenting class. Is there a waiver for a parent that is incarcerated or any other way this class can be completed by him?
  • If money was gifted by a spouses relative to purchase a home in a marriage, is this considered a gift that would apply under A.R.S 25-211? Can the spouse get the money returned after sell of the property?
  • My husband took money out of his gross wages. It is now in his IRA. Our CPA said that it is still partially mine, because he earned the money while we were married. Is my CPA correct?
  • I was married for 14 years and do already receive 50% of my exhusbands military pension. When he dies, will i still be entiteled to this pension ?
  • if a person has had no contact with their spouse in 6 years are they considered legally seperated? What are seperation laws in Arizona?
  • My "ex" and i got a marriage license back in 2007. had a wedding ceremony but NEVER filed for the Marriage Certificate. Does that mean that we were never Legally Married?? We are now wanting a "divorce", we both agree on everything we just want to be returned to "single" status and i would like to change back to my maiden name. i would also like to marry again in the future. How do i go about getting my maiden name back if i was never legally married. can i remarry with out a "divorce decree" since we were never "legally" married?
