FINANCIAL ISSUES - MARITAL PROPERTY V. SEPARATE PROPERTY
My mother in law lives with a man and has for many years. They was married at one time and after about a year divorced. A few years later they started living together again but did not marry. She lives on a family farm that she owns. She raises sheep and cows. He has nothing to do with that at all. He is not in good health and may have to be put in a nursing home and she is wondering if she is responsible for his care. Thanks for any advise that you could help out with. Appreciate the help!!Answer:
In order to properly respond to your question I would have to review the divorce settlement agreement and the Court Order.
It would be advisable to have them enter into an agreement spelling out the financial responsibilities or lack thereof of each party in their relationship.
If you are living in the NYC metro area, please call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for an appointment to discuss the matter at greater length.
