My wife injured a child at our house where she had a daycare

My wife injured a child at our house where she had a daycare business. She then drove off and struck 3 people with her vehicle. Injuries included broken bones and bruises. The car is in my wife's name with a car loan in both our names. Both the house and car are insured by Farmers who denies the 5 claims stating that they were intentional acts. The claimants have not filed lawsuits. My wife is pleading not guilty by reason of temporary insanity with pre-trial scheduled Feb 13, 2017.I own 7 houses. One is a homestead. Some are in my Subchapter S Corporation,s name. Some were purchased before my marriage. All, except one have mortgages cosigned by my wife. My question is that if the injured parties don't receive settlement of their claims from Farmers, if my houses could be used to settle the claims. If not, which houses are safe from the claims. Also my wife is willing to a divorce before trial with me keeping all the houses.

My husband and I have been married for over 20+ years. We

My husband and I have been married for over 20+ years. We purchased a home in 2003 (married in 1996) and it became community property. He took me to our back and wouldn't let me see what he wanted me to sign. Even the notary was taken aback by how fast he ripped it out of my hand after I signed it. I had no reason to not trust him. It turns out it was a Quit Claim Deed and now he has the house. It's been paid for for over 10 years and is worth (market value) $280,000.00. I asked for half of the sales proceeds and he's refusing to give me any money from the sale of the house. The divorce was final on October 10th and I never got an attorney because my hubby said we could save money if we only used one attorney.....HIS!! Do I have any recourse??JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Yes....so far as the divorce, but nothing else except a tiny amount of alimony when he makes over $180K per year and we have NO DEBT whatsoeverJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No...I just want what is rightfully mine. I thought any property purchased after marriage was deemed community property

I think I am about to go through a divorce. I live in Idaho

I think I am about to go through a divorce. I live in Idaho and my husband and I have purchased several rental properties during our marriage as investment properties. Because I have bad credit, we have used his credit to obtain the financing on the properties and I have signed a quick claim deed at closing to take my name off the properties (he said this was so we could get the financing done). Now I am concerned that because I signed the quick claim deeds to those properties, and trusted his word, that I actually have no claim to them at all and will not get anything from them in the divorce. Can you offer some advice?
