Q: I filed with the court a Family Part Case Information statement and now my wife lawyer want to have my case dismissed.

My wife lawyer want a copy I sent to the court but the court has the only copy, can the lawyer get the copy from the court?

Ivan Raevski answered on Mar 9, 2020

you need to send your wife's lawyer a copy of anything you file with the Court. I don't think they will dismiss the case based on this but the Court rules state that all documents must be served upon the opposing party or their counsel. So going forward you must follow the rules.

Q: If I cosign an apartment lease for my soon to be ex wife how will that effect my signing a lease for my own apartment?

I do understand the gravity of cosigning. She makes more than enough to pay the rent. They require proof of 3x rent in monthly income which she cannot meet. I have no worries about her paying and we both have excellent credit. Thank you

Ivan Raevski answered on Mar 5, 2020

so what is your question? you as co-signed will be liable for rent and any damage to the ex-wife's apartment. it has no bearing on you being able to get your own apartment. every company has their own criteria for what the tenant must show in order to rent the apartment
