AOA liability


#1

It depends on whether your funds can be separated out as her funds and your marital funds. If they can’t be easily divided, then your mother may end up losing some of her funds as a result. You’ll need to have bank statements and be able to show clearly what funds are yours and what funds are your mothers.

Good luck,

Is that the extent of her liability or may she also be liable for any judgments, i.e. can she be named in the suit as well or am I the only one who can be named in the suit? She has no knowledge of my actions.


#3

In an action for equitable distribution of the property, you would be the only party named in the action. However, because your funds are mixed, she may have to give up some of her funds if you cannot clearly show how they are divided.

Good luck,

I am a graduate student, still living at home, and I had 6 week affair with a married woman. I broke it off because… she’s married. I share a joint checking account with my mother and I am concerned about an alienation of affection suit. Would my mother have any liability if the suit does come?

Thanks
