Q. My husband and I have 2 dogs that I signed and paid for. If we divorce, could he take the dogs from me?
A: If the dogs were purchased during the marriage they are considered marital property regardless of who paid for them. That means that if you and your spouse cannot agree on who gets the dogs, the court will decide.
Q. My father is deceased his house is in Trust, I'm the successor Trustee. Is the house considered mine? Like a 2ndary home
A: The house being in your name as trustee is not the same thing as the house being yours. Assuming the house has been deeded into the trust as indicated by Mr. Kottaras, above, what happens to the house is determined by the terms of the trust. You, as trustee, are duty bound to do what the trust says to do with the house.
Q. Filed divorce Feb 2020. I filed my taxes for 2019 separately and she is saying she is legally entitled to mine. True?
A: If your question is whether you have to give her a copy of your tax return, the answer is this: If she asks the judge to order you to give her a copy of it, the judge will do so.
