FINANCIAL ISSUES - MARITAL PROPERTY V. SEPARATE PROPERTY
I am writing on behalf of my cousin, he has been seperated for a few months(less than 4) and is now thinking of purchasing a home if he does is this still considered community propery. He is living with a friend and wants a place of his own, but is not sure if the court will take it away and give half to his ex who has custody of his 2 children and does not work, please if anything will affect him let me know, and if he should wait til everything is filed please give us your opinion as well.Answer:
Did he enter into a written Separation Agreement prepared by an experienced , matrimonial attorney?
To properly answer your question, I would have to review the Separation Agreement .
Until he gets a legal opinion , he should hold off taking title in his name .
Give me a call at 212-370-1660 to discuss the matter further.
