By co-owner I am making the assumption that the account was held by two people as joint tenants with a right of survivorship. You must confirm that with the bank. If one person dies, then the money -- at law -- is the property of the other at the moment of death. I don't see from your question what...Read more »

It would be difficult. You don't say how long ago you went to Court. You also don't say what you did to learn of his past. If you could have learned about this stuff (if only you'd looked) you can't go back to Court and say I didn't know. It is critical to know how long ago this was. If he...Read more »
My divorce states that my ex is to pay me $600/month for 12 months after the date the agreement is signed. But I am now pregnant, not by him of course. Can my pregnancy cause for the alimony to be stopped or does he still have to pay. No special wording on divorce agreement paperwork just that he... Read more »
I think at worst your agreement is unclear and subject to two meanings. Alimony that is set out with a definite time limit is usually specifically called "alimony in gross" in the agreement. To call the alimony "periodic alimony" which is ended by co-habitation (but not by simple conception of a...Read more »

Hello. Some people use a life insurance policy to fulfill financial obligations. You can attempt to sue his estate as a creditor, if an estate has been opened. Or, try to get SSI benefits on behalf of your child. Sorry for your loss and best of luck.

This statute deals only with the notice requirement to perfect a demand to return. I think you are asking if there is a statute of limitation on theft. That would depend on the value of the items. Try your questions again and give some facts so someone can answer.

Can he ask to stop paying support due to my pregnancy when he finds out, although... Read more »
The question will turn on the language in the order or agreement. This sounds like alimony in gross in the nature of a property settlement which is not effected by your cohabitation or remarriage. Read the order carefully. It does not matter who he is shacked up with. If -- on the other hand -- it...Read more »
