4.   "If my ex-spouse does not allow me to visit my children, then can I stop paying child support?"

5.   "What is marital (or community) property and what is separate property? What is the difference between the two?"

6.  "Will I lost some or all of my pension as a result of divorce? I don't see why my spouse should get any of it - he has hardly worked a day in his life!"

7. "Are alimony and child support taxable? If so, is there any way of structuring support payments to my ex to lower my taxes?"
