Question:erica eberle attorney tennessee

I’ve been trying for quite some time to get my divorce from my wife finalized. She has taken forever to get a copy of the decree back to me, and now that she has, the decree is totally different than what we had originally agreed upon.

She changed what we had agreed for custody, insurance, credit card debt, the house and more. Should I fight for the house and assets? What are my options here?

Question:michelle hughes attorney missouri

My ex and I have been divorced for 20 years. Our divorce papers state that she is entitled to one half of a prorated share of any retirement I receive, based on the number of years married against the total years of service.

She remarried many years ago. She and her current husband both have jobs.

Is there a legal way that I can stop, reduce or modify the amount that I have to pay her now that she is remarried and has support from her current husband?

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?

My ex-wife receives 25% of my monthly retirement pay, but she recently told me I could keep all my retirement if I bought her out for $50,000.

Is this possible, and if so, what do I have to do?

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:
