Legal Answers
24 Questions Answered

Q. Request Property manager to take down Black Lives Matter signs in store
A: No, they have a right to display such signs.
Q. I live in NY state, and am in the process of getting divorced, is a loan from my 401K in my name that was deposited...
A: If the 401(k) is a marital asset to be divided, the loan balance could be taken into account when dividing the 401(k) (so as to reduce your spouse's share of the 401(k)).
Q. Hi I'm looking into closing or transferring money from my ex husbands 403B. Need expert advice please.
A: Assuming your judgment of divorce or settlement agreement awards you a share of the 403(b) account, you will likely need a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) to receive your funds. Seek out an attorney in your local area who handles QDROs.
