Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
I would certainly try here.At worst the court might deem this marital debt and you get half of the loss here from the husband in some kind of accommodation during property part of divorce hearing.It is worth raising in your case even if court only awards you half.This loss may be seen as a martial debt/loss and gets divided.
But even half here beats nothing.I would raise it in your pleadings and the judge here.It is worth a try to spread the loss among both parties.
Alaska is an equitable property state with a law allowing couples to choose community property rules by executing a community property agreement or a community property trust. A couple can designate all property as community property, or can specify in their agreement that certain items, for example earnings during the marriage, will remain separate.
. Judges in Alaska have a great deal of discretion in deciding what factors are important in an equitable distribution of the your debt an assets; if it seems unfair not to, they can even include separate property in the division. A judge will consider all of the following:
So certainly try to raise this loss and hope the court includes it in resolution and awards at least half the loss to ex here.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and the best here.
