Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello there --
You need to get a lawyer working on this matter immediately and make a request of the court that this fraudulent transaction to his brother be undone by the court (the court has the power to make such an order) and then the land and the business must be evaluated by a forensic accountant so that you will be awarded at least half of the value of these assets in the divorce proceeding. Under these circumstances, just because the land was in your husbands name alone has no bearing whatsoever on what you are owed in the divorce because of the length of time that you have been married and the fact that the land and business on the land were co mingled throughout the marriage in BOTH of your names. My suggestion here is to ask your lawyer to ask for 60 or 70 percent of the value of the business because you are now disabled and unable to support yourself (after working to support the business and the family all of these years) and he should be punished by the court for trying to fraudulently transfer marital property so that you could not get any of the value of it in a divorce. If your lawyer does not want to pursue the matter using these angles, then you should speak to a few other lawyers until you find one who is willing to fight for what you are entitled to in this marriage.
