By The Way -- They Live In Ga And They'Ve Been Married For 10Yrs.
I will answer this as though "they" is "you."
How big is the house? Big enough for two "unmarried" people and some kids to live in without falling all over each other?
You might want to just patch it up to the extent that you can, one of you move into a spare bedroom, get the divorce, and live as ROOMMATES with joint ownership of the home until the housing market recovers.
You might get along better that way....really. You will need to reformat your relationship, and maybe get a little counseling in the process, but if you care about your kids that might be the best solution.
Also, the both of you would be available to care for the kids (make it an equal effort--or if one does it more than the other, recognize that this is a contribution that has VALUE and should result in decreased contributions to the financial management of the household--same deal with things like cleaning the house, doing laundry, or making meals, or shopping--these are all contributions with VALUE). Otherwise, split the bills--mortgage, utilities, etc, and just hang in there.
The main difference? You're not responsible for each other's personal laundry...OR emotional happiness--your spouse's feelings matter less, because you're not a "unit" anymore. Treat your former spouse with the same consideration you would any other roommate. You're two people raising kids you parent jointly, but that's where it ends. You aren't responsible for one another, just your share of the bills, and your kids.
If you both date, be respectful, don't be bringing your "friends" home to sleep over, and don't stay out all night without letting the other one know. Trade off date nights (he gets every other Friday, for example) and explain to the kids that you're splitting but you'll still be there for them.
The Duchess of York and her husband, Prince Edward, manage to make this sort of arrangement work--and it works really well for them. Perhaps you can, too.
Hang in, if you can, until your house recovers value. When you can get out of it what you pay for it, consider selling. You're probably not going to find a cheaper place to rent, each of you--or if you do, it won't be as nice.
Consider this solution. It's unorthodox, but it could be the right thing if you approach it in a positive way. Separation/divorce is as much an emotional process as a physical one. Maybe it won't be a bad idea to get the "emotional" aspect out of the way first. Do the physical separation when you both can afford it. Less stressful for the kids, too.
Searching For Good Workers Comp Attorney Websites, Help Please?
Could Someone Direct Me To Some Sites That Offer Workers Compensation Attorneys? Oh, That Are In California. :D
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Workmans' Comp matters. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give FREE, initial consultations? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
-Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Family Laws In Vt?
My Husband'S Ex Has Not Brought His Child For Visitation For Months. He Has Filed A Motion To Enforce With The Court, And It Has Now Been Over A Month And The Court Has Still Not Even Set A Hearing Date. Does Anyone Know If There Is A Set Time In Which A Court Must Set A Date?
Usually the Court sets a date for the hearing. I work at a law firm and we usually have dates within 30 days, sixty days is the maximum. Call the Circuit Clerk's office in the Court that you filed it. Ask to talk to the family division. They will transfer you. Give them the case number or your husband's name. Once you do that they will be able to tell you when the next Court date is set. Also, if they do not have one you can ask when they expect to have one. Tell them that this is very important to you, you should have one immediately.

Does California Recognize Divorce Decree Obtained In Taiwan?
We Were Married In Taiwan. After 5 Years We Moved To Ca, And Got The Green Card. Unfortunately Things Does Not Work Out Well, And We Are Considering Divorce. We Have A House In California. No Child.
If We Reached An Agreement And Divorce In Taiwan, Does Ca Recognize It? Also What About Our House? If Both Us Agree To Let One Take The Cash, And The Other Take The House. Do I Need To Go To Ca Court? We Want To Keep The House, But Looks Like Kind Of Hard..
was the divorce ever registered in the USA or California?
If not, you should be able to divide up as you please. The state courts are very concerned when there are kids involved.
Since you have a house in CA, I believe the marriage was registered in California.
Just submit the divorce paperwork to the courts or have a lawyer draw it up for a flat fee under an uncontested divorce. This is to prevent an ex-spouse from coming back years later to claim your assets.
If the ex does not sign it, no problem get him or her served the papers and if it goes to default divorce (they don't show up to court or contest it) it still goes through. I had to do this unfortunately.
I Need A Good Lawyer!!!!?
Do You Know Of A Good Lawyer For The Nashville Area? For Car Wrecks????? That Doesnt Take An Arm And Leg Once He/Shes Gets Your Money????????
Why do you think you need a lawyer. Here is a novel idea, call the at fault insurance company, and report the claim. Let them know you are injured. I am assuming that is why you think you need an attorney. You can work with the adjuster. If at any time you feel that you are being treated unfairly, then get an attorney. Why give an attorney 1/3 of your potential settlement. Adjusters do not increase settlement amounts just because you get an attorney.
