Dear sherribw:

Greetings. Did you file an action for equitable distribution prior to the divorce being entered?

Dear sherribw:

Greetings again. It will depend on what each of you is asking for. I don’t have enough information to answer your question. I would need to see your pleadings and equitable distribution affidavits. Best of luck and let us know if we can help.

I AM DIVORCED WITH TWO CHILDREN MY EX HUSBAND GAVE UP HIS RIGHTS TOO. WHEN HE LEFT US HE TOOK EVERYTHING THAT WAS PAID FOR 2 HARLEYS, A CAMPER, A FORD COUPE, MY SON’S GOLF CART, MY DAUGHTERS PUPPY, HE EVEN TOOK MY SON’S COINS OUT OF THE SAFE BOX AND WON’T RETURN THEM. THE COURT GAVE HIM USE OF OUR TRUCK PROVIDED HE CONTINUE TO MAKE PAYMENTS AND KEEP INSURANCE ON THE AUTO. HE HAS NOT PAID A PAYMENT SINCE MAY OF 2003 AND HAS NO INSURANCE (I HAD TO CARRY), HE ALSO CONTINUES TO FILE MY CHILDREN ON HIS TAXES EVEN THOUGH HE GAVE UP ALL RIGHTS TO THEM. HE EVEN RECIEVED THE TAX CREDIT LAST YEAR ! HE HAS HAD TWO DUI’S ONE IN MARCH 2003 AND ONE IN NOVEMBER 2003. THE ITEMS HE HAS ARE IN MY NAME AND I HAVE HAD TO PAY PROPERTY TAXES. HE HAS LEFT THE STATE WITH THE AUTOS AND I AM AFRAID HE WILL HURT SOMEONE OR DESTROY THE AUTOS. WHAT CAN I DO ? MONIES ARE LIMITED AS YOU MAY GUESS SUPPORTING TWO CHILDREN ALONE, ALSO WHEN HE LEFT HE DID AROUND 20,000.00 WORTH OF DAMAGE TO THE HOUSE WHICH INS DID COVER HOWEVER PREMIUMS WENT UP 1000.00 A YEAR. I DO HAVE A 50B ON HIM AND HAVE RENEWED IT TWICE. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO WITHOUT AN ATTY TO RETRIEVE MY PROPERTY AND SOME OF MY LOSSES? I AM AFRAID IF I WAIT MUCH LONGER IT WILL ALL BE GONE. ONE MORE QUESTION…HOW WILL BANKRUPTCY CHPTER 7 AFFECT THE EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION ? IT HAS BEEN DISCHARGED, WILL I STILL GET WHAT IS DUE ME OR WILL THE COURTS TAKE IT?
