Wife is plaintiff, I am defendant. Wife dissipated an asset an was found for dissipation.

Asked about 1 year ago - Clinton, NJ

In a pro se motion filing to add a party, do I request to add the party receiving the dissipated property as a defendant? i.e. can I as a defendant sue another defendant (along with the plaintiff) for the value of the dissipation? Or do I ask in the motion to "add a party"? So to be clear - do I ask to add "a party" or "a proposed defendant"? Thank you.

    Answered . If you are in divorce court, a 3rd party can not be added to the Complaint without the Court's permission.

    Good luck.
