I live in Houston,Tx. and have owned a house ,free of mortgage since 1995. I married in 2003, and plan to sell the property, and take the funds,and move to N. Carolina , where we had plans to build a new place, and retire.Just recently, my husband has implied that I owe him money from the sell of my home because he has helped with property taxes, HOA, honey do's, and went in half on several appliances. He never paid rent though. He built a deck and pergola, and I paid for the materials and equipment needed, as was the agreement. He had a sailboat he sold during our marriage that I helped pay utilities and slip fees on , as well as a nav. system , but didn't get anything, and I never asked for compensation. Do I owe him anything when my house closes? I was told that he has to sign a form also, at closing, that states, he has "no liens" on the property. My Broker is concerned about that, and him preventing a sell.Thank-you, Stephanie

I am writing to inquire about a postnuptial agreement my

Hi,I am writing to inquire about a postnuptial agreement my wife and I are working on.Background: we got married 3 months ago in Tennessee, both of us are on work visas and undergoing the naturalization process (we are from different countries). We were working on prenuptial agreement but we had to advance our wedding date because of family emergencies.Two things I am concerned about and hoping to cover in the agreement:1. My family is still living overseas and I am also planning to retire overseas. I am planning to set aside a maximum of 20% of my annual income (after taxes) and wire it to my account overseas. This money will help support my family (parents and sister, they have access to the account) and what is left will contribute to my retirement. I want the remainder of this 20% to be out of any settlement in case we ran into problems that end up in divorce. My questions:a. Can such term be written in a postnuptial agreement in Tennesseeb. How do I need to word that in an agreement? Meaning, in the unlikely event that we end up divorcing, will I be responsible for all the wired money? What is left of it?2. My family have property overseas and it has huge sentimental value, not much monetary (around 15 K in value). Eventually, I will be inheriting that property. I am hoping to keep the land in the family, can I write a term in the postnuptial that any land I inherit is out of reach in the event of divorce?

I am getting a divorce with a post nuptial agreement. I have

I am getting a divorce with a post nuptial agreement. I have a trust fund that provides my primary income. My married lifestyle is much more than my annual income, causing my trust monies to decrease yearly. My monthly income is 2 1/2 times less than I make. My husband owns several companies & makes three times as much as I do monthly. Our assets are not much difference. I have invested a large amount of my personal money into homes we have built which isn't included in the mortgage. His income is annually recurring while mine is decreasing. His business is family owned. I am 66 & have inoperable severe back problems that are debilitating. He is 75 & very healthy. We have been married for 28 yrs., both second marriages. I would like to receive alimony, what are my chances of receiving it?

California law. Bought home in Dec. 2012 (mortgage). Got

California law. Bought home in Dec. 2012 (mortgage). Got married on Oct. 2013. Separated on Feb 2015, she went up north with family. I was helping her make ends meet each month. She came back to live with me on August 2016. Bad Idea. I was thinking of fixing her immigration papers (I figure I want her to work), and then maybe filing for divorce, but I want to know exposure.I make decent money. Bi weekly I bring home about $2350 net after deductions (taxes, medical insurance for the family, 401K that just started).I know I made a mistake by bringing her back, but I figure since she is here I might help her out. But I want to know exposure. My main concern is:1) Can I keep my house?2) Temporary spousal support while we are going through divorce (I don't think I can afford it).3) Alimony?She has a kid. It is not mine. (The kid was already born by the time we got married).

Postnuptuial Agreement, Can we get one? Me and the wife have

Postnuptuial Agreement, Can we get one? Me and the wife have been married for 20 yrs. We have had a lot of problems lately. We are considering one. The only property we have is our house and 2 mortage notes that I inherited. We also have one rental property but it was also inherited because my grandfather loaned the money and the note went to me when he passed. She is in agreement that the house should be all mine because if she leave then I will keep the children. But we would also like to see if we can divide future property that may be purchased by putting in my name to be mine or her name to be hers or jointly should we choose. Is this possible? I as because i read that it cannot be overly one sided and that is how this one seems.

I receive child support and spousal support through a post

I receive child support and spousal support through a post nuptial agreement between myself and my (now separated but soon to be divorced) spouse. I'm planning to leave the family home (which I was awarded per the agreement) and move into a rental property. The rental property is owned by a man I am dating but he does not live there. We are not cohabitating and do not plan to even when I move into his second home which is located one hour away from his primary residence. Am I at risk of forfeiting my spousal support because I pay rent to my boyfriend to live at this separate home?
