  • How to handle Security Deposit with divorce and lease in the name of the husband only and he is leaving

    David’s Answer

    The most prudent thing for you to do is to have her divorce attorney call you to discuss. Obviously, if the wife is willing to sign a new lease and pay a separate security deposit then there is no issue as to what to do. If the wife is unwilling, there are host of potential issues. Furthermore, a review of the lease really is required to answer this question.

  • Does physicial abuse impacts the separation of property in a divorce case. will I have to give my husband 50% of my assets?

    David’s Answer

    I am so very sorry to hear of this situation. You must be at your breaking point with stress. In short, all of the answers written by the other attorneys are correct. While your husband doesn't have any money, future money received after separation, generally, will be his own money, especially if it is from an inheritance. This is the same for you. What the issue likely will be, is him coming after your money. This is where you will need an attorney to protect you and your assets. You really need to meet with an attorney in person to discuss this matter.

  • Do I need to respond in 20 days for a No-Fault Divorce 3301(c) & 3301 (d) for a divorce complaint filed in Chester County, PA?

    David’s Answer

    Well I'm sorry to hear of you being blindsided. I'm sure this is probably causing you much stress. You should meet with an attorney ASAP to review this matter; this is especially true if there are potential issues of alimony, child support, child custody, equitable distribution of assets, etc. If you fail to properly respond, you can be setting yourself up to lose all of the above rights, with the exception of child support, but there can be arguments made about amounts of child support. There is also the remaining issue, I suppose, of whether you want this divorce granted. All of these questions can't be answered in this online forum, but require a meeting in person.

    Sorry to hear about this situation. You will need to meet with an attorney in person to get all of your questions answered and also to have items discussed that you haven't even probably thought about. If you are separated and not living in the same house, you can file for child support and spousal support.
