Legal Answers
6 Questions Answered
Q. Can I get alimony or financial retribution?
A: In New York, marital property is distributed through a process called equitable distribution. Many factors affect how the court will allocate marital property, such as the length of the marriage, each spouse's contribution to the marriage, etc. In some cases judges will split marital property 50/50, but not always. If you were subject to physical abuse by your husband, the court will likely give you a greater share of marital property. Also, keep in mind that not all property is marital property. Personal property is not subject to equitable distribution. Some examples of personal property are assets acquired prior to the marriage (though you may be able to obtain a share of appreciation on certain assets), personal injury awards, inheritance, gifts, and other items. Talk to an experienced divorce lawyer to get an idea of what property you are entitled to in the divorce.
Q. do i need a lawyer to file for a divorce
A: A lawyer is always recommended, but not always required. For a simple uncontested divorce, where the parties agree to the terms, you may be able to file the paperwork yourself. However, you will need to make sure you file the correct papers. In the event you erroneously file something or leave something out, it can substantially delay the divorce. I always recommend hiring an attorney for a divorce.
Q. Judge ordered home sold immediately,wife refuses
A: You should immediately inform the court that your spouse is not complying with the court order. The judge may request a conference to find out what's going on. You can also file an Order to Show Cause to request immediate action from the court, such as precluding a spouse from interfering with the sale. If your spouse continues to violate court orders you can file a motion for contempt of court and for sanctions.
