Question: Hello, I came across your ad that states you give advice to vets and families.I am the spouse of a 100% service connected deceased Veteran. My daughter got divorced 9/2013. Her ex in 12/2013 had his support cut in half., leaving her very little support. Now he wants to try to get equal parenting time of their 3 year old daughter, so he no longer has to pay any support. He has shown no interest in the child at all, outside of every other weekend and it is obvious his interest is purely about the money. We are very concerned about this, because my grand daughter is very attached to her.

Question: I had a default divorce awhile back while I was away on active duty. My now ex told the judge that I made $100k/yr on active duty when my income was far less than half that amount of course. Modifying her and the court's secret divorce now is easy enough, but I'm in arrears for money I couldn't pay from the divorce up until my first modification. How do I get bank statements, tax returns, paystubs and whatever else they need and should have had in the first place to a judge in order to negate a year's worth of $3,500/mo alimony that AZ DES is still trying to enforce? -Making me a homeless vet

Question: I have to do a 50-50 split of net equity; $412000 (appraisal value)-$380214.57 (mortgage)=$31785.43/2=$15892.72 due to ex. I am doing a Refi, but as a veteran I can only borrow up to $417,000 at 90% LTV which then means there is no equity to disburse but I was told that is my problem and I still owe. Now can I deduct broker's commission from equity even though there is no sale? Or is there anything else I can deduct? Because I don't have over $15,000 to buy him out. I did invest over $22000 of my own money for home improvements, does this count for anything? What are my options at this point?
