FOR LUCY ONLYYou wrote: "You could potentially argue the meaning of "together" since only your name is ***** ***** but if she had any hand in picking it out, that's a tough argument."She is arguing precisely what you write. However, she required not to be on the title after she assisted me in the acquisition process by dealing with the broker.She also says it's "our home" and that is why she did not write her home (Evans lane) on the line that's designated for that purpose on her financial affidavit. She declared that property as just a real estate asset with the 2 others. She wrote "title in the LLC", because she quitclaimed it too. The prenuptial reads that it's separate property. She was owning it when we married. It's been her home since decades, she raised her sons there.The bot***** *****ne is that we have lived separately most of the time since our marriage
, because after we moved to FL she was homesick and moved back to CT, her home State where she has her family and was born. I could not follow because I had my employment here in FL. and there was no stability to stay at her home in Evans.The reason is that she's also renting Evans as vacation rental intermittently and the rentals are managed by the LLC. Basically, she hops from one property to another and she has an RV at the one in Boston Post Rd., that's a large property with a huge yard, so when the 3 properties are rented she stays in the RV. Before, she was going to her brother's.Based on the belief that our prenuptial was separating our properties and revenues, we never had any bank account in common, we never signed anything jointly, we provided for our own expenses with our own incomes separately, we avoided to interfere in each other's businesses etc...I did not object to her quitclaims because I never could imagine that she would declare 0% interest in that LLC that's an alter ego, and for me she had her properties and incomes in CT, and I had mine in FL.The rationale was that if both of us are not on the title, then the property is separate and belongs to the spouse that's on the title.The paragraph of the prenup that says: "ALL properties acquired together are marital properties" is ambiguous/ It should read ONLY properties....She's claiming things that are false, hence the incoherence all over.My logic is that the best line of defense in a divorce
is to put everything on the table and be honest.Trying to trick the other spouse, like obviously her counsel is pushing her into, and lack of transparency are just going to make the dispute more complicated and hard to resolve.THEREFORE, I AM STILL NOT CONVINCED THAT I SHOULD NOT BRING THE PRENUP TO THE ATTENTION OF THE COURT.This prenup is ambiguous but when looking into the facts, they are reflecting the intentions of the parties to keep separate the assets they acquired separately.In particular, my wife never requested any written consent to all these quitclaims.On the other hand, the judge should take into consideration all assets, separate and common, to divide equitably. That's CT law, the decision is in equity and not in law.If the judge decides that the assets deeded to the spouses individually are separate assets because to be common, they should have been bought together as per the prenuptial, then this would simplify the whole lawsuit.So here is my question: arguing that this arbitration would simplify the lawsuit and help the conciliation, is filing a motion to designate a referee to arbitrate the dispute, as provided by CT General Statutes, a possibility ?
