Understand divorce/legal lingo


#1

I just received divorce papers and we have separated everything and have the child support, custody issues taken care of and its filed with the court. I agree with the divorce except I don’t understand #2 on my papers. Could you please explain if this is just lingo or what it REALLY means and if I should be concerned. Thank-you! This is under the part “The plaintiff prays the court as follows:” #2 For such other and further relief as to which the Plaintiff may be entitled in law and equity.

Mx ex is the plaintiff…


#2

Can you give the sentence prior to that? It would put the other sentence into context.


#3

the sentence before that is #1… Basically saying the marriage is to be dissolve and an absolute divorce be granted.


#4

That is a standard phrase used in a prayer for relief.


#5

What does that mean? Is he trying to get $$ from me?


#6

It means, please give me anything else I’m entitled to but may have forgotten to ask for.
