Legal Answers
Q. How long do I have/how long can I legally wait to pay out the lump sum payment to my ex? (NJ)
A: The answer will depend on the facts surrounding your divorce, equitable distribution of assets and any contingencies that might exist to trigger a reasonable time frame of the payment to be made. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney to guide you as you will likely be served with a motion to enforce litigant's rights of the divorce agreement which frequently will include a request that the other party's legal fees be paid by you.
Q. Can I live with my boyfriend if I’m collecting my ex husbands pension? I know I can’t remarry.
A: New York law will apply here. However, under NJ law the pension is an asset of the marriage which is distributed through a Qualified Domestic Relations Order so it is not in the same category as alimony spousal support. Your alimony spousal support may be decreased or terminated if you cohabitate. You should seek the guidance of an experienced Divorce attorney who can review your marital settlement agreement to guide you before you make a decision which could impact your support.
Q. Does Personal Bank account equitable distribution is until Divorce date filed or until the date Divorce hearing in NJ
A: Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the coverture of the marital estate is date of marriage to date the divorce complaint is filed. Any asset that falls into that time frame is part of the marital estate and therefore presumed to be subject to equitable distribution. There are certain exceptions to this which can move the date of valuation such as a long separation and there are certain factors that must be met. I would recommend on meeting with an experienced attorney to discuss the valuation with you.
