FINANCIAL ISSUES - MARITAL PROPERTY V. SEPARATE PROPERTY

Question #260:
My husband and I are separated. Two months after the separation he filed for divorce. According to the separation agreement, my husband had to pay the car off by May 1, 2011 and transfer the title to me. He still has not done this. I will get a 155.00 decrease in my homeowners if I use Allstate for both car insurance and homeowners insurance. What can I do? can I request money from him for the late payment?

Answer:


You should send him a certified letter informing him that he is in breach of the Separation agreement (quote the paragraph)
And that if you do not received confirmation of the payment and the title to the car as agreed, you will be forced to hire an attorney to
Make a motion to the court to enforce this provision and that he will have to hire an attorney to respond and pay for yours as well.
If he does not respond, you can proceed to enforce the Agreement in court. The court should allow you any immediate damages you suffered as a result of his breach.
