101 Questions Answered

Q. I would like to get a divorce but my spouse is unwilling and we also live in different countries, how do i proceed?
A: You would file a case for divorce in the county in which you reside. The fact that he lives in a different country, makes it complex. So you will need to hire an attorney, but it can be done.
Q. If I’m a stay at home mom and file for divorce Can I get primary custody of our kids?
A: Although I agree with my colleague, Attorney Lieber, to directly answer your question, the fact that you were told that since he makes the money he will get them is NOT true. Do not let this stop you from filing for divorce.
Q. My wife and I resided in Florida. She fled to New York five years ago, taking my daughter. She has filed for divorce.
A: Yes, not only that, she is obligated to file in New York as only New York has jurisdiction over your (minor) child. Florida lost jurisdiction over your daughter four-and-a-half years ago.
Q. What part of my retirement and ssi is my wife entitled to if we were married for less than 2 years
A: That is ridiculous (you need to get an attorney). She is only entitled to that portion of your retirement that accrued during the two years you were married. And if you did not make any contributions to the retirement account during the marriage, she is entitled to nothing. As for SSI, she gets nothing. DON'T SIGN. Good luck.
Q. In Florida in alimony court if I worked for 30 years at my parents business making 80k and they decide to close
A: So long as your parents actually closed their business, that would justify a lower, if not no, alimony payment. However, you would have to go out and use your best efforts to find employment. As you may know, alimony is based on her need and your ability to pay. If you do not have the ability to pay, you will not be ordered to pay. Good luck.
Q. I'm a PR, housewife and my kids are American And Singaporean. How can I have custody of the kids and move to spore
A: If your husband will agree to the relocation, it should be very easy. If not, you have to convince a judge that it is in the best interest of the child to relocate to Singapore.
Q. My ex and I have written/notarized agreement regarding CS and visitation but she is not keeping up w/ it. what can I do?
A: First, your written notarized agreement, although witnessed by a Rabbi, a Priest, an Imam and Donald Trump himself, is not enforceable. The only way it would be enforceable is if it were reduced to a court order and signed by a judge. Next, it seems that you sat on your rights too long and now, New York has jurisdiction over your child. As such, you would have to go to a NY court to obtain visits. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Q. If I got a second job after I separated to meet the ends. Will that count in my child support calculations?.
A: Yes, the income from your second job will be counted in your child support calculation.
Q. Respondent, Divorce w/child in Florida. What reason would my ex want to push up mediation before CMC? Should I agree?
A: Why shouldn't you agree. If you want to get divorced, why not go to mediation. The CMC and mediation are unrelated. You may get to the CMC and the judge would order you to mediation. Mediation could very well save time and money. Good luck.
