HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I am sorry to hear of this situation for your daughter.No. She is not legally obligated to return her engagement ring or her wedding ring or any other gift that has been given to her by the husband.
The ring was a gift and conditional on getting married. Not staying married.
Money, finances, marital assets and marital debt will all be decided by the court when those issues arise.
The wedding gifts belong to both of them. And so that is marital property and if they cannot work the issues out in mediation, then I suggest that the court will decide for them.I suggest, she consider a mediator and begin the marital separation agreement process before she takes anything or gives anything back.
I understand. If she works with a mediator, that is her best recourse at this time. Thanking you in advance for a positive rating.
