Cathy, I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a dozen years of litigation experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
I will answer your questions in the order in which they appear.
My question is is there any way I can fight the judgement? The answer to this question is yes, you can appeal the judgment to a higher court and make arguments as to why the judgment is erroneous and should be overruled or set aside. You typically have 30 days from the issuance of a judgment to appeal. If you have missed that window, then things become harder for you. The only remaining option at that point would be to file a motion for reconsideration before the court that rendered the judgment on the basis of new evidence or evidence that was not considered by the court initially. That is a long shot, but I have seen it work in the past.
My second question, I read on a legal sight that since she did not name my spouse on the claims paper she is unable to go after him or me because of the "community property in az". is this true?
That is not entirely true. She can go after your marital assets, or assets that you guys have gained together while you have been married. Since she did not name your husband, she cannot go after his property he owned before you were married, however she could go after your assets that you possessed before you were married since you were named in the law suit.
Let me know if you have any other questions or comments.
Please also rate my answer positively.
Best wishes going forward!
