Best Answer

Is the sociopath mother on medicine to control her behavior? If not and the sociopath is a danger, then the innocent spouse needs to take legal action to protect himself and the child immediately (contact a lawyer, the county should have some programs to help those who cannot afford one). If the sociopath mother is on medicine, going to counseling and is compliant with her doctor there is not a whole lot you can do. The father will have a better chance in court to get full physical and legal custody.

Is friendship with someone from the opposite sex innocent if you keep it from your spouse?

It is certainly not innocent if you have a friend of the opposite sex and want to keep it from your spouse. If you are truly friends with this person then talk to your spouse about him/her and ask your friend over for dinner. There is nothing to fear as long as that person truly is just a friend. Keeping it a secret only casts shadows of covering up a possible extra marital affair.

Can the IRS levy property that is owned in the name of the innocent spouse when the liability was incurred prior to marriage?

The IRS doesn't levy property, they levy bank accounts and wages. They can place a lien on a tax payer that owns property and collect on a liability when that property is sold. In a case where a taxpayer has a liability before marrying; as long as the taxpayer has filed married filing separate each year of marriage, or filed married filing joint injured or innocent spouse, the IRS should not levy or place a lien against the innocent spouse.

Is it appropriate to have opposite sex friends without your spouse knowing?

No. Friendships between members of the opposite sex can be completely innocent. However, if you are not including your spouse in that friendship, or you are keeping communication of any nature from them when it is in regards to opposite sex friends, you have crossed a line from innocent to not so innocent. Secrets, lead to lies, and that is a quick way to kill a marriage. Include your spouse in those friendships. Introduce them to the other person, and always include them in meetings, and tell them about conversations. If you can't or don't want to do that...ask yourself why. If this is just a friendship you should have nothing to hide. If you want your marriage to work, and you truly love and respect your spouse, keep friends of the opposite sex at a distance. Shouldn't your spouse come first, always?
