Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. question
A: No, but you could be asked that on cross examination if it’s at all relevant and you would have to answer truthfully.
Q. I am in Georgia, my soon to be ex is in Pa. and our marriage certificate is from South Carolina. Where do I file papers
A: Where you married is irrelevant. If you are the petitioner, you sue her in Pennsylvania or in Georgia with the proper waivers.
Q. My husband and I divorced 10 years ago in the divorce decree we both kept our own IRA’s
A: Difficult to give a definitive answer without examining the settlement agreement. If it states unequivocally that neithr party can claim any interest in the other's retirement fund, then you do not have a claim and he is not obliged to list you as a beneficiary. Consult with a family law attorney.
