One question that often arises in matrimonial proceedings is how do the courts address one spouse’s interest in a family business?
The issue of a person’s legal place of residence has significance in matrimonial proceedings and other legal matters affecting where you can sue or be sued or where you must pay taxes among others. Legal residence is primarily a function of intent.
A frequently asked question in cases of divorce is; what has to be divided with my spouse? The general rule is that property acquired after the ceremony and before the filing of a summons is marital property. The general exceptions are property from an inheritance, a gift from someone other than your spouse, or the result of a personal injury recovery.
