What is the statutory minimum that I would be ordered to pay? Would it be fair for the court to consider my stocks and house?

Q:My wife and I live in and were married in NY. I was just terminated from my government job; I'm claiming it was due to a disability and have retained an attorney in this regard. I intend to file for divorce and know that she will get custody of our son and that I will have to pay child support. She does not work, and I have no current income, other than $3,000 in stock dividends yearly, and minuscule bank interest. My stock holdings are worth about $200k . I own the house, worth about $800k and intend to live there. I know that the standard for support would be 17% of my income, but I don't have a salary, not a pension. I have a strong case against the government, but it can take a year or more for my disability retirement to be approved, or denied, but my case is very compelling. I'm afraid the support magistrate is going to look at me as having a lot of money, but I have no steady and very little income flow. If I were to sell my stocks to help pay for support, I wouldn't have enough left to pay my taxes on substantial capital gains.

How can I get an Ex to allow me to inspect a home for damage we both still own?

Q: We have stated in the divorce agreement that I can inspect twice a year with 30 days notice and i follow the agreement but when i show up she states i am threatening her and will call the police if I ring the door bell. Can I get a court order to enter?

Am I allowed to have my own account ?

Q: If I am married am I allowed to have a separate account and not to give access to it to my husband? We are about to divorce and I am afraid that if i give him access to it he is going to transfer money from there to his parent's account and I won't have money to hire a lawyer. But I do not know if I am allowed NOT to give him access to this account as technically it is our marital money.... also am I REQUIRED to give him cash from this account if he asks for money?

Trying to start my simple divorce process but spouse is nowhere to be found and family ignores my messages?

Q: We don't have any asset's together, no children, I reach out to the family on social media and see they read my messages and they refuse to give me any information. What fees and time frame am I looking at to finalize this divorce?

Is there a statue of limitation on signing divorce papers?

Q: I was granted a divorce by the Supreme Court on March 15,2018. Up until today my ex and her attorney have not presented me and my attorney with the paperwork to sign to finalize the divorce. Is there something I can do to speed up the process? I was told what I have to pay her in alimony and other things and I just want to give her what she is entitled to and move on to move on with my life. Thank you for your help!
