  • Is my wife responsible for half of our loans?

    Throughout 10 years of marriage we borrowed money from relatives, is she responsible for half the debts?

    Jayson’s Answer

    Marital debt is an issue for a divorce. If the debt was incurred during the marriage for marital obligations, then it is an issue that needs to be resolved in a divorce. Consult with a local lawyer to assist you.

  • My wife and I were paying off a mortgage as a form of rent. We have been apart for 8 months is she still responsible?

    Is my wife still responsible for part of the mortgage?

    Jayson’s Answer

    If your wife is on the mortgage, then she is obligated to the bank for the loan. The obligation to you is a separate matter. Marital debt is an issue for a divorce case. Consult with a divorce lawyer to help you. Alimony or spousal maintenance in New York State is a question of income and expenses for the spouses.

    Jayson’s Answer

    Your lawyer needs to file paperwork for the judge to sign by the 8/18 date. It does not mean that the judge will sign the paperwork by then. Speak with your current lawyer to follow up and complete your case. You can not get married until your lawyer give you the paperwork (judgment of divorce) after the judge signs it and it is entered by the County Clerk which will be months after the judge signs it.
