What should I do as the spouse of a mentally ill Non Custodial Parent who has a child support hearing and cannot attend?

Q: My husband owes money for child support arrears. He has not worked in many years. He was undiagnosed until about 2 months ago with Bipolar I, after being hospitalized. He is unable to leave the house due to delusions and manic behaviors. He has had several episodes and cannot attend the court hearing scheduled. What can I do? Can I go in his place? Can I ask the court for a modification? Can I ask for the hearing to be reschedule until my husband has become stable? Please note that he is under a Psychiatrists, therapists,and neurologists care. Any guidance is very much appreciated

Removing my husband's name from the house deed after the divorce agreement is signed?

Q: The divorce agreement states that his name should be removed from the title within 5 days...How do I do that without having to paying transfer tax...Currently the house is under my name as well as his.
A: Produce a quitclaim deed to him & ask that he sign-off on it. As for the tax question, you're best advised to consult an accountant. Call a Westchester Divorce attorney for more info.

I am planning on filing for divorce from my husband who is African. But he has gone back to Africa. Can I still get divorced?

Q: My husband and I have been married for two years, he is not a US citizen and I found out by my neighbor that he went back to Africa. He knew that I was filing for divorce from him and he ran away from the marriage. Do I need his signature on the divorce papers and can I still get a divorce?

Can I sue my ex to share college expenses I have already spent for my son? My son will be 21 in few weeks.

Q: The divorce decree says the parents should share the college expenses based on their respective ability at the time such expenses are incurred. In the decree the Judge has ordered that each parent can take turn in claiming our son as dependent on tax returns. When my son started his college I requested(texted) my ex to stop claiming him on his tax returns, because he was not sharing any college expenses. He agreed to my request (nothing on paper, he has no screen shots saved of that agreement) Can I simply state that no such agreement was made and demand that he reimburse me his share of the college expenses that I have already spent?

In a post-matrimonial enforcement action, we forgot to request that my ex pay counsel fees. Is it too late after the decision?

Q: In my divorce documents finalized a few years ago, it specified that whoever defaults must pay counsel fees. Fast forward to 2017, and my ex filed an Order to Show Cause to get out of splitting college, but because no solid legal arguments were included, it was not successful and in effect it was simply a default. But I understand you also have to ask for it in the enforcement motion itself and that didn't happen. Now some people are saying it's too late to ask for counsel fees if it wasn't in the enforcement motion or raised shortly afterward, and one person claims you can ask for it at any time. Who's right?
