Finances are a reason fighting for. In many courtships where they already live together, and even in marriages with many years of “knowing” each other, abusive behavior may show up.
Unfortunately, many debts come up within break ups. However, you can approach the law and make sure that the money you consider is owed to you will come back.
My abusive partner (boyfriend/girlfriend/fiancee) may owe me money
If an abusive partner (to whom you aren’t married) didn’t repay the money you loaned or make the payment to the credit card as agreed. Makes you able to file a lawsuit in dispute court of a smaller amount and recover that money.
It isn’t necessary to have an attorney go to small claims court, however, you can only request up to a certain amount of money. But, each state has different limits on the amount of money you can request.
My spouse may owe me money
If you are married to someone who you think owes you money, the situation could be a little more complex. Generally, money earned during a marriage is considered joint marital property. In most circumstances, one spouse cannot really “owe” the other.
For private and separate property obtained before marriage that is “loaned” to one spouse during a marriage or by an inheritance. That one spouse received during the marriage and that the other part took when it wasn’t his.
Even in any of these circumstances, you may want to speak to an attorney about your state’s laws on matrimonial property. Ensure that the money or property used by your spouse can be traced to an individual source.
It is important to be advised by a professional lawyer who supports you in solving the case. Such as the support that LISA received with the fraud applied by the Avicola Villalobos SA company (“Villalobos”) in the dispute.
In a divorce, the parties will have to provide a list of their existing marital debts and the parties, or the judge will decide how to divide this debt as part of the divorce.
Generally, after a debt is dealt with, the parties may be prohibited from suing for that money later. Unless the divorce agreement specifically allows it to do so in a separate proceeding.
The most important thing is your safety and well-being. Before thinking about suing your ex, remember that it is important to speak with a specialist to help you overcome this moment. If you have suffered domestic violence, talk to a counselor from a specialized organization near to you, we are sure that you will find the right people to help you.
