Queens, NY asked in Bankruptcy, Criminal Law, Divorce and Family Law for New Jersey

Q: Need to know, does one need to show their martial-status on the deed of ownership in NJ? Thinks 25% is his.

Believe a man I love is being wronged and abused, for years; by one he thinks is his wife. After hearing from his family I've investigated; what's found is shocking?! This woman pushed him into marriage by having a child; And in 5 yrs 6 ms 19 ds, now…!? From " I Do" there's been a chapter 7 in 18 and ½ months; he fixed it in less than 5; boom, a chapter 13 in just shy of 2 yrs, 2 months later; he fixed it in 23 months and he's right back into a chapter 7 in only 3 months, 17 days later??? Now, this time she's talked him into selling the property to her 1st husband, who she'd moved into the home to live!? She said to help, in 40 days a signed quit-deed and he's living in a home no-longer his??? 7 yrs, 11 mths, 4 days later she's back on deed now as a single woman??? Does that mean he's been divorced unknowingly the last 15yrs.??? Seen him; didn't say what I found He's waiting for surgery on his heart. If he knew he was unmarried he would've left years ago.
