We were divorced in 2012 in NJ. I have been remarried and moved to CA. I am filing for bankruptcy and my ex wife is living large. In 2010 she loans $5000 to her friend of my money and has never paid me back, but it was our joint account. She has purchased some stocks using my name. I have contacted her recently for money but she has taken me to court and charged me with harassment. The case was dismissed by judge. There are some other bank statements showing how she has used my portion of money. Thank you!
Your question involves different state jurisdictions, you have filed bankruptcy, your divorce occurred in NJ and you now live in CA. You do well to direct this question to your bankruptcy attorney first because the answer by your bankruptcy attorney will govern how this plays out. You do not state if you are doing a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. After talking with your bankruptcy attorney perhaps you should be talking with a New Jersey licensed attorney to see how the divorce judgment affects this bankruptcy, or the other way around. There are way too many facts left out of your query for any attorney to respond specifically to your question.
This is NOT legal advice, is GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY, and does NOT establish an Attorney/Client Relationship with you. Therefore my answer cannot address your specific legal situation and you should not rely upon my answer in your legal matter. I am an attorney licensed in Maryland and California.
Not sure what you are asking here. Anything you claim in 2010 as any credits or reimbursements should have been included in your divorce judgment and division of assets and debts under NJ law. Her actions after the divorce are irrelevant to your present financial situation.
