    Your obligation to the credit card company stems from the agreement you made with them when you applied (or accepted) credit. A divorce judgment does not erase those obligations.

    Alan’s Answer

    If your ex is violating the divorce judgment, you can file an OSC Re contempt as a means of enforcing the judgment. This seems like a proof problem, though. How will you prove you msde the calls and that she won't pick up?

  • How do you resolve non-separate, non-community property from a divorce and what is the statue of limitation?

    Not separate or community property Dispute between two non-profit organizations that parties were Directors over. Court does not have jurisdication Funds are over 35,K Funds are frozen in a CD

    Alan’s Answer

    Your question is a bit confusing. Apparently you are a nonprofit corporation holding a CD belonging to directors who have gotten a divorce. Correct? Ask them to whom the property was awarded. If it was left out of the divorce decree they have to go back to court and have it adjudicated. There is a specific Family Code provision governing this type of situation.
