Q. We are doing our own divorce paperwork in OR.He prenupped the farm.I've lived/helped 13 yrs.Do I get anything from that?
A: If the prenuptial agreement is a valid contract, then the divorce court will most likely approve it. There are many factors that must be considered in determining whether the prenuptial agreement is a valid contract. Factors include whether there was a full disclosure of all material facts concerning the amount, character and value of property and assets; and whether each party was given the opportunity to consult with an attorney concerning the provisions of the agreement before signing it. Even if the prenuptial agreement is valid, it may have been later modified by express agreement or by the conduct of the parties. Or, the prenuptial agreement may not specify how some property, such as appreciation in value of premarital assets, is to be divided upon divorce. You should contact an attorney to discuss your options.
Q. My spouse was awarded house in decree but owes a buyout. He no longer wants the house nor to do the buyout.
A: Your understanding that you can't just change the property division in the divorce is correct. Instead of amending the decree, I recommend you enter into a new agreement to purchase the home from your former spouse, who is now the current owner of the home, in exchange for satisfying his obligation to buy you out.
Q. Should I let my mom's 100 or so junk vehicles go through probate or should they be re-titled to her Trust?
A: If your mother has the certificates of title for the vehicles, she should sign her name in the release of seller's interest on the back side of the titles. Once she signs a title, keep it in a secure location. After (or before) your mother passes, you can transfer ownership of the vehicle by giving the buyer the signed title and adding the date of the sale to the title. Sale proceeds should be treated as trust assets.
