marital home mortgageBy Nancy Shannon

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

If you are going through a divorce, do not pay expenses for your soon-to-be-ex-wife, such as marital home mortgage payments, and expect the court to give you credit for it later.

The following case study example is loosely based on the facts from a recently released Appellate Court decision in Nebraska.

New Jersey divorce lawyerQuestion:

My question deals with marital home mortgage responsibilities during a divorce.

My wife wants to move out of the marital home, which has a mortgage with both our names on it.

Since we are both named on the mortgage, is my wife still responsible for her half of the payment even if she moves out?

Pittsburgh divorce lawyer Anna CiardiQuestion:

My ex-wife was awarded the marital home in the divorce decree, but she has yet to remove my name from the mortgage and deed as required by the agreement.

The mortgage company now says I cannot remove my name from the mortgage because my ex-wife cannot refinance the home alone.

How can I get my name off the marital home mortgage that was required by our divorce decree? Could I just take the house back since my ex-wife cannot afford it?

oklahoma city divorce lawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife and I broke our apartment lease when we separated and owe several thousand dollars to the property manager that should be treated as a marital debt.

Our divorce decree did not address this debt, and now the collections company is coming after me to satisfy this obligation.

Is there anything I can do as far as getting my ex-wife to contribute a portion of this debt since her name was also on the lease? She has refused to pay anything thus far.

New Jersey divorce lawyerQuestion:

I owned half of my house prior to marriage and the other half of the house was transferred to me as a gift after my marriage, so the house is fully paid off with no contributions from my soon-to-be-ex-wife.

No marital funds were used for anything involving the purchase of the house, though both my wife and I live there as our primary residence.

Is this house now considered a "marital home" subject to equitable distribution property division laws?
