I see, thank you for that invaluable information.
One last question, honest. You have been delightful. I plan to refer your service to my friends. I am attending WEAVE, which is Women Escaping a Violent Environment and the other ladies need legal advice from time to time.
WEAVE provides help with safety issues - attorneys who help with legal custody and restraining orders but they don't have the resources to help with financial questions.
And I have no money to engage an attorney or I most certainly would.
This service is very helpful, I intend to give an excellent review and come back in the future.
Can creditors attach my retirement if/when they get judgments.
My spouse implied he was "protecting" me when he filed bankruptcy in his own name.
It appears I am only protected from being fully informed and have no control whatsoever over how our jointly owned assets will be disposed.
If something happens to my spouse, then I am totally - 100% liable for every debt. Then, I would be prudent to file personal bankruptcy.
Oh well, I will keep you in mind if I do divorce, are you located in or close to Sacramento California.
Remember my story when you are having a bad day,
there is even more than what I have shared (His Mom's trust, death in 2007 and trust not distributed yet due to his sisters malfeasance) and ..........................................I unstand he does not have to share his inheritance. I hope he can hold on to something for the children to inherit, but there are problems there as well.
There are assets owned by our business, a corporation to which I am an officer - some trucks and equipment with no loans on them but he can sell them as he is also an officer, President of Corp and can sell without my permission, pocketing the money as the company assets were not listed in the personal bankruptcy. But again, I cannot stop the sale nor can I force him to share any such proceeds from vehicle and equipment sales. Business is dead because he has drained all working capital - it is insolvent.
Oh well, many ladies have had worse happen. Some have been murdered by their spouses on top of all of these types of problems,
I am looking forward to a quiet, peaceful life away from this madness, gratreful my children are grown.
With much appreciation.
