Legal Answers
137 Questions Answered

Q. My wife and I have live at the same address for 27 years. Both of our names have been on the deed since 2003.
A: I would have to say that after 27 years of marriage, she's not going to receive the home as her sole and separate property. Whatever you do, I strongly urge you to retain the services of an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney, especially in light of the comments she's made. Unless it is a short term marriage or a valid prenuptial agreement, she's not getting the property free of any claim you may have. One could take a position, in a short term marriage, that he/she should share in the increased value of the property from date of marriage to date of divorce. Hire an attorney. Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish.
Q. Divorce 2/2018. Ex has rec'd notices re: taxes owed for 15 & 17. he is self employed, i'm not. He says i'm liable.
A: What does your Judgment provide? If they were joint returns and not addressed in the Judgment, you may have to go back to court in an attempt to get clarification. The government is not a party to your divorce. Therefore, both taxpayers are liable if not addressed in the Judgment.
Q. There is a court order in place since 2006 outlining parenting time for both father and mother.
A: The police will generally not get involved in this process. I say generally because it might be a small department in a small community where the individuals live and are known.
