Equitable distribution


#1

Dear cgirl:

Greetings. She can get half of all the marital property that they accumulated. Have him ask her attorney for a spreadsheet of what an equal division is. Thank you.

Even though they were only married for 8 months, she can still get something?? Her attorney sent him a letter with 18 items listed and the amounts she believes she is due for these items. She listed $300 for a dishwasher, which they never even had, and all the items that she did list, she took already.

Thank you for your reply, Ms. Fritts.

Dear cgirl:

Greetings. Yes, even if married one day if there is marital property, then equitable distribution is available. Good luck.

I’m here to try and find out something about equitable distribution, but it’s for my boyfriend. He got divorced this past July. He was only married 8 months and they have no children together. She is suing him for equitable distribution, but she took just about everything when she moved out. She’s even asking for payment on some things that they never even had. She has a lawyer, but he can’t afford one and I don’t really know what he’s going to do. Also, he has a prior child support obligation from his first marriage, so it’s not like he has the money to give her.

I know that when you are married to someone, there is marital property that should be divided, but for 8 months of marriage, just exactly what can she get? She’s asking for 401k too.
