Do I have to pay my spouse's student loans in a divorce?

Student loans have become almost essential for many people attending college today. There is a large number of Maryland residents who must make student loan payments for several years after graduating. Some people even continue paying student loan debt for decades if they have gone on to graduate school or professional school, like medical or law school. It is also not unusual for a person to be married and still take out student loans to pay for these degrees. Your spouse may be one of these people.

Divorce and your future wealth - or lack thereof

If you and your spouse in Maryland have made the hard choice to end your marriage, you know that now it is time to turn your attention to the logistics of untangling your lives. The experience of getting divorced touches every fiber of a person's life and the outcome of the final divorce settlement can have a major influence on their future life and lifestyle.

What is asset valuation?

One of the most important things in a high-asset divorce is properly figuring out your net worth as a couple. The Maryland court will expect that you do a complete job of determining the value of all your assets so they can be properly divided. This is where asset valuation comes in.

Should you add a forensic accountant to your legal team?

If you and your high-asset Maryland spouse decide to end your marriage, you should be aware that some spouses attempt to hide marital assets during a divorce so as to not only prevent their spouse from getting his or her rightful share of them, but also to enhance their own post-divorce financial situation. Unfortunately, asset hiding by greedy and/or vindictive spouses during a divorce is not at all uncommon.

Financial factors in a gray divorce

Divorcing residents in Maryland who are over the age of 50 or even over 60 when their marriage ends should take the time to consider just how their financial world will change. Getting a divorce when near or at the age of retirement can have severe financial consequences for people. No longer will they have the nest egg they thought they would have to retire on as assets will likely be split in some fashion during the divorce.

Alimony, taxes and the rush to divorce

As soon as the turkey leftovers are put away, many people in Maryland turn their attention to their Black Friday shopping trips. This year, however, instead of hopping in their cars and rushing to the malls, some people might be rushing to get their divorces completed before the calendar turns to 2019.

What are some signs my spouse is hiding assets?

In order to get a fair assessment of your marital assets in a Maryland divorce court, you have to report all your assets. While you may be completely honest, your spouse may try to hide assets. It is important that you watch out for any activity that may be a sign he or she is trying to hide something from you and the court. If an asset is not revealed during the course of your court proceedings, it will not be including when the assets are divided and awarded by the court.

Three things to do in the months leading up to a divorce

Divorce is not something that anybody goes into marriage planning on. However, as MarketWatch reports, about 2 million divorces are filed in the United States each year and about half of all marriages ultimately end in divorce. With such daunting statistics, it is only prudent for those who feel as though their marriage may be coming to an end to prepare beforehand. Divorce is a major and often stressful undertaking, but doing these three things can help mitigate some of the pressure.

When married business partners get divorced

Most people in Maryland would agree that a divorce regardless of the nature of the circumstances is never a simple experience. It tends to rock a person at the most fundamental level and even forces them to realign their hopes and dreams for the future. When a person getting divorced is married to their business partner, things can get even more complicated quickly. 

Exercise care when balancing bankruptcy and divorce

Maryland spouses who are contemplating divorce but also struggling with serious debt may logically wonder if filing for bankruptcy is a good option for them. In addition, they may want to determine the best timing for a bankruptcy relative to their divorce to know which should come first.
