For the amount they payed for wedding
Family Lawyer: S. Kincaid, Family Law Attorney replied 2 years ago

I don't understand why they thin this would be your obligation. Were you still married to someone else at the time? Are they accusing you of fraud?

I got divorced from my 1st wife immediately after I found out.its not like I did it intentionally
Family Lawyer: S. Kincaid, Family Law Attorney replied 2 years ago

Did they say in their court papers whether they were accusing you of fraud (doing it intentionally) or negligence (doing it by mistake?). Also, when did they discovery this issue?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
They just called me and said they filed papers in court today I didn't receive it yet.as soon as I found out I told my 2nd wife immediately. About a year after we got married
Family Lawyer: S. Kincaid, Family Law Attorney replied 2 years ago

The statute of limitations is two years. In the case of fraud, the two years doesn't begin until the person discovers they have been defrauded. If her parents learned of it on the past two years and they are alleging that you did this intentionally, it might be within the permissible tube period for filing suit. But more likely, the statute of limitations has run out. You need to get a copy of the court papers to be sure.. They should provide you with a copy, or you can go to the courthouse and purchase a copy.
