- Hi and thank you to everyone on the board!
In Michigan, my wife has filed a complaint of divorce at my hearing for motion to terminate PPO.
The PPO was sustained, based upon preponderance of claims, that have left reasons to believe that a rehearing may be granted, let me assume for the moment, the re-hearing is granted...
PPO being challenged, has resulted in my inability to acquire records and other property from the home, I need for the divorce. Married 3 years, during a prior separation, I purchased our current home, no equity, $1,100 per mo, we reconciled.
I am the only one named as single man on the deed. Again, new infidelity, established in PPO hearing to terminate. Financial records, bogus FIA filing on her part, home improvement records, costs, etc.
1) How do I manage a negotiation with a remaining PPO in contest?
2) The divorce summons enjoins all parties to me from contact in any way, how do I negotiate a settlement?
3) Do I subpoena my records from her, and/or FIA? Or just subpoena her and require here to bring all?
4) How do I retrieve my personal belongings? Can a peace officer assist still while the PPO remains in challenge?
5) If I win the cause for my home, will she be required to move out timely? She has worked in the past, but not nearly able to afford the mortgage. She has one adopted child in the home, 6 years old. She has moved for spousal support during the divorse proceedings. She is presently working, last known since forcing me from the home.
6) Can the infidelity and pendancy of the PPO for validity work within my response to the divorce complaint, to defend from her seeking spousal support? (She has a man living in my home with her, stated paying rent, using my address and phone for a scam business public advertised, who the judge required to move out, claims that he has moved out).
These matters are both before the same judge. Yes, I am working to get my attorney up to speed in this instance, but I'm hoping to identify an approach to digest some of this before hand and there is a very short time period to the PPO rehearing I need to posture with the divorce response a few days after that, from 4 days ago.
Thank you sincerely, for any pointers to law or guidance. I do not seek advice, per se, that would be inappropriate.
