Greetings. Here are my answers:
- I doubt that his/her criminal record will affect your equitable distribution. I would have to have more information though, which is best to give to your attorney and have them evaluate this fully.
- Possibly. Once again, the full story would need to be given to your attorney and they will need to evaluate the ramifications of your husband’s actions on equitable distribution, if any.
- Possibly, but probably not.
Now, if you need to keep the marital home due to children, and you have your name on the home and can compensate your spouse for the equity, then you should be able to keep your home and the judge can order the same. Keep your head up and be happy that you have moved on from this man. Best of luck.
