I filed for divorce in August 2009. I may be involved in a class action suit for a prescription drug I took .

This drug may have caused my cancer.
Do I have to share my settlement with my husband or soon to be ex husband?

Dear Barnegat,

Thank you for your question.

Is your spouse a party to your lawsuit? If yes, then yes but not equally, only 5%-25% (settle at 10-15) but only if he is a party, if not then no, nothing. However the amount of your settlement could have an impact on your need for alimony in a judges mind. If you need assistance I would be only too happy to help you, please see my profile.
