I already know what you have mentioned. I've been researching this online for a while now. I need to know the answer to my specific questions.
But is this a transmutation?
If you search the meaning of transmutation you see that it says when you already own a property and convert it into community its is transmutation. I did not own the property before her name was added.
No. I purchased the property for cash and put it in both of our names so that later I could get the loan.
But all the money was my separate assets.
What about the Moore & Marsden formula?
Can you give me one or two similar cases so I can study them?
I've studied cases involving transmutation but couldn't find any cases similar to mine.
What happens when a husband puts down say 80% and wife puts 20% of the down payment and take joint tenant title? how is that divided?
even though husband's investment was much higher?
how can i find similar cases to this one to study them?
But this was done in order for me to get a loan. Just like when one spouse signs a quit claims deed to the other spouse so they could get a better loan
doesn't the law say it doesn't matter whose name its in whats important is where the funds came from
I think I need to find a few cases similar to mine and study them before doing anything
can we look at this from a different POV. Money is property, right? I owned the property (the money) then I converted that property into community property
that would be transmutation, is it not?
OK. can you please find me a few similar cases?
I have sent a Notice To Produce Documents to my wife's attorney and requested the following information:
All medical records including but not limited to invoices, prescriptions, psychological evaluations, names and addresses of medical doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health institutions, and any other mental health professionals which you have visited for counseling, therapy, or as a patient, approximate dates, approximate number of hours, and reason for the visits, list of medications taken or prescribed medications which you did not take, prior to and after the date of your marriage.
All records including but not limited to, transcripts, grade reports, degrees, notes, memoranda, emails, correspondence or other documents and writings reflecting courses taken and studied in any school whether online or on campus, dates, names, addresses, contact information of all schools attended whether online or on campus, dates courses started and completed, number and cost of the units registered regardless of whether passed or not, during the period from date of marriage to the date of production.
Her response to the medical records was:
I object to such request as irrelevant and privileged under physician/patient privilege
(My wife has many psychological problems and I am trying to get custody of my children from her, I need to call her psychologist and psychiatrist to testify her conditions in court.
And for the school records she responded:
I object as to relevance.
She has been going to school for many years and is due to graduate in a few months. I need her school information to show the court what she has been studying and how she is dragging her graduation date to after the divorce is final.
Can she object to the information I have requested? If not, how can I force her to give me the information?
