How do i compel Milana Tepermayster, my ex's attorney to speak with me as prose? he's in alimony violation and she knows it. ?

Q: I'm prose. my ex husband's attorney is refusing to speak to me, email me, and to send me written letters. i cannot get her to confirm she represents him. I've written the judge to please interfere since she refuses any contact with me. In fact, i cannot even confirm she still represents him, because if she did, wouldn't she by law have to speak with me somehow? she knows he's in violation of the judgment and has not provided full alimony. she's refusing contact as if he because he's in violation. I've had to call him at the FDNY station house before to ask for my alimony checks that he's in violation of and not providing, because she refuses to speak to me. I can't confirm that she indeed works for him, her silence says she isn't employed by him any longer. 

Is it illegal for me to send legal documents to my ex husband? it doesn't' appear he has a lawyer?

Q: I'm prose. my ex husband's attorney is refusing to speak to me, email me, and to send me written letters. i cannot get her to confirm she represents him. I've written the judge to please interfere since she refuses any contact with me. In fact, i cannot even confirm she still represents him, because if she did, wouldn't she by law have to speak with me somehow? I'm going to send all legal documents directly to him and not to her, since i cannot get confirmation from any of her staff that they work for him and represent him. Yes, if he has a lawyer it's customary to send it to them, that i understand... I'M ASKING IT IS ILLEGAL FOR ME TO SEND HIM DOCUMENTS INSTEAD OF TO HIS LAWYER? as long as he receives all documents he's required to by the judgment, and he does, i am compliant, yes? (fyi there is no restraining orders in place) 

Am I eligible for annulment ?

Q: Dated prior to marriages. He was taking pills and suboxon. When I found out, I ended relationship. Haven't seen him in over 2 years he told me he was all clean, no pills, no suboxon. We starting dating for almost 6 months again and we married. The marriage was going south almost immediately as I saw a major change in him. He finally confessed he has been taking suboxon the entire 6 months we dated and couldn't get it anymore from "his source". This was totally deceitful, as I NEVER would have married him if I was made aware of that. He admitted that was why he never told me. Now we haven't had sex almost 1 year as he says he's impotent. Saw a doctor and does not follow through. He says he won't give me a divorce, but does he have a say in it or am I entitled to an annulment? We have no kids together or any assets together. No bank accounts, nothing. 

In NYS can my friend record our conversations then give them to my Ex to use against me in court?

Q: Going through a divorce in NYS, talking with my friend of 15 years about my Ex (no threats or specifics about the divorce) just about my feelings regarding him and his mistress. My friends husband works for my Ex, as does my Ex's mistress. Can my friend record our talks without my consent and then give them to my Ex to use against me in court? My friend knew about the mistress from other sources. Our case is only financial there are no children and I filed on irreconcilable differences not infidelity.

Q: He wants to have a verbal agreement leaving me with apartment. He will help pay the morgage until i can refinance. How can i trust that if he abandoned me! I cant afford the expenses. What should i do?

OSC for contempt. Out of state divorce governed by the Supreme Court. Is a county court general jurisdiction the proper court fo

Q: divorce judgment it has to be in a court of competent jurisdiction. Is the court of General jurisdiction in New York state a court of competent jurisdiction equal to the Supreme Court of Florida?

I'm concerned that court of General jurisdiction is not the right Court for the origin show cause to be filed with . Any assistance would be greatly appreciated .

How do I get the recent post-nuptial agreement I signed disqualified?

Q: I agreed to dismiss the divorce action I commenced if we entered into a post-nuptial agreement. We both made full disclosure of finances and had full and separate legal representation. The agreement was very fair. In exchange for some concessions on my part, my spouse agreed to have incomes and retirements separate as of the date I filed for divorce (because that would be the date the court would likely use if we proceeded to divorce). I am the higher earner. We also agreed to contribute to the household, including college for the kids, in accordance with our incomes (me contributing more). Problem is two months after signing the postnuptial agreement; I realized that my lawyer left off the filing date in the retirement clause, which means in the event we divorce, my spouse would be entitled to his Majauskas share of my retirement up to the new filing date. I asked my spouse if he would be willing to have the agreement corrected to state the original filing date. He said no. Do I have any recourse? If I file again, will the original filing date be used? or the new filing date? I don't really want to file again, but don't want him to be entitled to half after that date.

What measures to take to safeguard Marital Assets (Married for 30 years)?

Q: I do not want divorce, want to live separately. We do have marital assets(houses, 401k, stock options, retirement), all acquired during marriage). Husband in late sixties still high wage earner, I am early sixty (low wage, part time). Can I apply for spousal support while living separately. Do not want my husband to make changes in his will or reallocation of assets. Please give me few ideas before recommending to speak to a matrimonial Lawyer. 

Is switching an attorney in the middle of a divorce very expensive?

Q: I have hired an attorney through a referral service who has reasonable rates and retainer. I do not have any personal recommendations for him? I am hoping it will all work out well, but in case it does not? What are my options?A: David's Answer: On the one hand, you'll need to pay the new incoming attorney to "get up to speed" by reviewing the prior legal file. On the other hand, you need to ask yourself: what's the price of sticking with an inferior attorney & losing your trial? Could you end up losing custody of your children? And if so, what price tag do you put on that? What's the best/worst-case scenario on payment of child/spousal support? Often times, when calculated out over several years, one is talking many, many ten's of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars. Having a good, well-experienced attorney representing you is often far better given what you stand to lose. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Divorce attorney for a full assessment.

I want to move out before I file for divorce. How can I protect my rights when I move out?

Q: 1. Married for 37 years.
2. My spouse is 68 years and earns high income. I work part time and low income
3. Has 401 k and retirement plan
4. We own 3 properties
5. No debts.
I want to make sure that nothing gets touched when I move out and file for divorce later. At the time of filing for divorce I don't want to be in the same place. A: David's Answer: Mere possession doesn't affect asset distribution in a divorce - thus, you're generally able to move out (especially when there's no minor children involved) without repercussions. If you need money to move out, you can file a petition for spousal support in the Family Court first before filing for divorce. Bear in mind, however, that a mere Family Court filing doesn't restrain him from disposing of property/assets - only a divorce filing does so.
