I’ve heard from many people who say that they are making a payment after a divorce, and when they say they are making a payment after a divorce, they typically mean that they have made a payment on the house that was sold that they are not required to make.
That is not the case. In some states a debtor can take out a mortgage after a divorce and still be considered “debtor” for income tax purposes. But, according to a recent New York Times article, as of February 1, 2013, if a debtor is making a payment after a divorce, the payment will be considered a “spousal support payment”.
This is because the law states that when a person divorces, the payments must be made on the house. In other words, a debtor is making a payment on the house that he or she bought, but since the house has already been sold, it will not be a spousal support payment.
So why is this news? Well, there are a few reasons. When you divorce, you are no longer married, so you no longer have a marital property. But you still have a marital asset (the house). The law is saying that all or part of that marital asset goes to the spouse. This is the most common reason that couples are divorced.
Since the house is the only thing left of the marriage, the only way the estate can be distributed to someone other than the spouse is if the spouse also owns the house. In a couple with a property distribution agreement in place, the court has to look at the intent of the parties when it says the property belongs to them. While the intent of the parties is usually clear, this can be hard to prove.
I can tell you from personal experience that this is one of the most common reasons for couples to split up, but it can also be the most complicated one. When someone leaves their house to go work for a competitor, they usually don’t want to have to sell the property. At the same time, when someone moves to another state and leaves their house to live with their spouse, they usually want to keep the house and not have to sell it.
So if you’re a divorcee and want to keep your house, or if you’re a divorcee and are moving to a different state, the issue may be pretty complicated. The easiest way to handle it is to get a divorce attorney. When the court orders you to stay in a certain location, you will most likely be required to pay an attorney to represent you in your divorce.
The fact of the matter is that there are two kinds of divorces. Some are a simple “you need to stay in this state” situation. Others are more complex and have to do with property and/or support. When you are filing for a divorce, you will most likely be required to bring to the court your sworn statement that you are leaving the state, and in that statement you will need to give the court a list of all of your assets and liabilities and your ability to pay.
This is a common area for divorce lawyers. Most of them have their clients file for divorce based on the property settlement and/or the support stipulations in their divorce settlement. The last thing you want to do is put a bunch of demands on the court and try to get more money than you are able to pay.
While it’s not entirely legal, in some states, filing for divorce can be a way to get an ex off the hook for money that you weren’t legally obligated to pay. You’ll probably need to do this because you’ll be giving the court a list of your assets, and you need to prove that you’re financially capable of paying it. The more assets you have, the more likely it is that the court will grant you a divorce.
