Q. When getting divorced, can my husband claim a house that I got while we were separated?
A: He certainly can. Usually, a court may use any of 3 dates when valuing assets and liabilities: 1) date of separation 2) date of filing the divorce petition or 3) date of final judgment. There are different circumstances which may warrant which date is used. Of course, you and your attorney would argue the court should use the date of separation but there is no guarantee the judge will agree and his attorney may argue marital funds were used in the purchase of the subject property and other arguments that warrant another date being used. Hence, it is really best that you consult with one of us divorce attorneys so you can obtain advise specific to your situation; you should do that asap before you try to purchase that property. Good luck.
Q. Does a lesser earning spouse pay alimony?
A: Alimony is based on one spouse having a need and the other spouse having the ability. Though a person may request alimony, the facts of the case will determine whether that person ultimately receives it. If your spouse makes double your income, it doesn't appear he/she would be eligible; you, on the other hand, may be entitled to some spousal support. You should consult with one of us divorce attorneys to obtain advise specific to your situation. DISCLAIMER: The answer provided here does not constitute legal advice.

Q. is my ex husband suppose to be "Hiding" a Fl. lottery winning after or during marriage disolution? In a JGWentworth.
A: Good day. I notice you stated ex-husband - does this mean the marriage was already dissolved? If a spouse won the lottery before a dissolution of marriage was filed or anytime before a Final Judgment is entered, he or she is required to disclose it; of course, a stronger argument for it being subject to equitable distribution would be if the winning took place before the petition for dissolution was filed. You should consult with one of us divorce attorneys to obtain advice specific to your situation. DISCLAIMER: The answer provided here does not constitute legal advice.
