social security division divorceBy Jennifer M. Paine

Michigan Divorce Lawyer

Does your wife get half of your Social Security when you retire?

After all, she gets half of everything else you earned during your marriage, right? As I've explained in my articles on "The Truth To Common Divorce Rumors," everything really does not mean everything (not gifts, inheritances, passive appreciation, etc.), and this is particularly true for Social Security.

As a matter of federal law, your wife may receive Social Security based on your earnings, but not half of yours.

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

While preparing for an upcoming child support modification hearing, it came to my attention that my ex-wife has a significant amount of money held in stocks that my previous divorce attorney was somehow unable to locate.

I speculate that my ex-wife hid these assets somehow during our divorce. Can I subpoena documents from her employer and/or investment firm to determine the full amount of assets my ex-wife has and potentially hid from me?

How much does a divorce cost? That depends on many individual factors, but in any case, you'll probably need to make some financial adjustments afterwards. That's especially true for divorcing fathers.

Most divorced dads have to pay for child support and often two sets of living expenses. Obviously that leaves less money for everything else – your necessities and bill-paying as well as personal pleasures.

With that in mind, here are some helpful money-saving tips for single dads after a divorce.

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

How can I properly serve my child's mother to have my child support terminated?

I have filed papers numerous times to have my child support stopped, but the court says I need to notify my ex about this. I do not know where she lives or how to get a hold of her, so how can I have her properly served?

St. Louis divorce lawyerQuestion:

I owned a small business during our marriage and put my wife on as co-owner merely out of respect and not as an indication of the work she provided. The business failed and now we are heavily in debt.

She wants me to take full ownership of the debt, but I cannot realistically accomplish that with the amount owed.

How will the judge divide the business debt?
