Question:carrie westbrook attorney texas

My wife and I are divorcing after being married for 6 months. I believe she  has undiagnosed personality and psychological disorders. She's also 30 weeks pregnant. I would like to file for joint custody of the child. I probably won’t fight for full custody, as I know that the odds are stacked against me.

Right now, because I'm 63 years old, I'm also receiving Social Security Retirement benefits. I understand that once my son is born, he can receive these benefits under my name. 

Will the Social Security Retirement benefits eliminate or reduce the amount of child support I must pay if the judge does not grant me joint custody? Is there a way I can better prove joint custody is needed here?

dividing retirement divorceBy Jennifer M. Paine

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

If you and your wife are like most divorcing couples, one or both of you obtained or contributed to a retirement account during your marriage.

In all states, retirement accounts are marital property eligible to be divided between the spouses at divorce, and, in most states, the rule requires a 50-50 division for the amount that accrued during the marriage – regardless of which spouse actually contribute in work hours and pay to the account.

Yes, there are some, limited exceptions to this rule, such as a prenuptial agreement and circumstances of financial or marital fault – but these are rare exceptions.

And that’s a hard reality to face for a guy who’s spent several decades working to retire peacefully only to learn that the wife who is divorcing him is taking half of his work efforts with her.

"50-50," however, only begins the inquiry. Whether settling your case or preparing with your divorce attorney and financial advisor for trial, be sure to ask these seven essential questions about dividing your retirement in divorce:

Baltimore Maryland divorce lawyerQuestion:

How will my pension and retirement benefits affect my child support order?

Is my government pension not allowed to be factored into child support? I have one child who will have reached the age of emancipation by the time I retire and another child who will turn 18 after I am retired.

Should I file a motion to modify child support based on my retirement income?

Is there any way I can defend myself from this?
