divorce lawyer Daniel ExnerQuestion:

How does marital property division treat student loans?

I acquired personal property by using student loans, of which I am solely responsible for.

Does my soon-to-be-ex-wife have any property rights to the items I bought with federal loan money?

divorce lawyer Daniel ExnerQuestion:

I'm looking for separation advice for men on how to handle the property division of a car I bought my wife.

I bought her a car as a gift prior to our separation, even though she already had a good, reliable car. The car is in my name, but she says I cannot divest the asset because it was "gifted" to her.

If the vehicle I purchased is considered a "gift" is it her separate property or is it marital property subject to division?

garnish wages child supportBy Christian D. Barnard

A client recently came to me for financial advice on divorce concerning his wife perhaps trying to shield assets through a Social Security Offset.

A Social Security Offset is a reduction in the value of pension benefits subject to equitable distribution in your divorce due to an adjustment based upon hypothetical or actual Social Security benefits.

Under federal law, Social Security benefits are not considered marital assets and therefore are not subject to distribution in divorce proceedings.

Some government employees do not pay into Social Security, but instead pay in to another form of government pension plan. 

In essence, the Social Security Offset allows your wife to substitute the money she is paying into a pension plan for what she would be paying into Social Security, and therefore, shield it from division in your divorce.

My wife's parents gave us a large monetary gift to help us purchase our marital home, which is titled in both our names. 

Now that we are divorcing, how does that gift affect the equity from the sale of the house it was used to purchase?

financial advice on divorceBy Daniel Exner

Divorce Lawyer, Cordell & Cordell

A somewhat common question from divorced dads looking for legal separation advice is what to do with property they want to protect in their divorce.

Can you sell property to a friend before the divorce then buy it back from the friend post-divorce so their spouse has no claim to it? What about putting an asset in a trust in your child's name? What happens if the court discovers you were hiding assets or not being forthright with your intentions through the mentioned dubious techniques?

Of course, your ability to dispose of real estate will depend on the divorce laws and property statutes in your state.
