I am currently involved in the care of a member of my wife’s family in our home. If I establish a separate residence and am needed at our current house overnight in relation to caring for the wife’s family member, would the year of living separate and apart have to start over? Likewise, if I stayed on the property overnight but in our separate guest house, would the period have to start over?
Separate question regarding separation agreement:
If my wife and I were to complete this agreement knowingly in a way that did not equalize the value of the assets, would this be permissable? Accordingly, would my not attempting to get ongoing financial support, despite her life style’s being finacally well above mine, in return for a price which we agree upon for my half of home regardless of the assessed value be permissabnle? In this case, would a formal property value assessment be necessary if we otherwise reached this agreement? Thank you.
