Among the Ask a Divorce Lawyer questions answered today:

  • We've moved to separate states. How can I see my child more?
  • My wife has a bank account she hides from me. As her legal husband, do I have access to it?

  • Is my ex wife eligible for all of my retirement money
  • If I am claiming my 12-year-old son and my ex wife is claiming my 19-year-old daughter, can I also claim half of her college expenses for which I paid?
  • What rights do I have if my name is not on the birth certificate?
  • Since I have a seasonal job and our son is about to enter college, should I have to pay that amount?

Question: I have been divorced for a couple years and my ex is now living with another man. There are numerous indicators that they are married (both wear rings, they're renovating their home, they go on trips with my kids, I have proof of joint financial decisions, etc.) but she refuses to admit she is married so that she can continue to get me to pay maintenance.

How often is anyone successful at proving common law marriage these days?

Question: I paid $100,000 of alimony in a lump sum in 2006. The IRS is now claiming that it is not deductible. Can you provide direction?

Question: Our divorce was finalized about a year ago. I’m paying way more than I can afford in alimony. 

I’ve tried to work out a solution with my ex rather than going through the court process again, but she wants nothing to do with it, obviously. 

So can I challenge the terms of alimony even though I signed off on those terms about a year ago?

Question: My wife of 20 years said she wants a divorce because she has a boyfriend and loves him. We have two children together, ages 16 and 17. I’ve been the sole provider for my family up until last year when my wife got a job at a local coffee shop.

If she is now working, and her boyfriend has a decent, steady job will I have to pay spousal support? I figure I’ll have to pay child support, but I don’t think I should have to pay alimony to a dual-income couple.
