Thank you for posting this question. Marital financial abuse is a very serious issue, but the Courts do provide methods by which it can be addressed.

As always my responses are based upon the application of NJ law. The answer may not be in accordance with the laws of the other 49 States. My second of my always responses is that anyone can sue anyone, the real question is whether a party as plaintiff (the one who sues) will prevail. The question...Read more »
We canceled our wedding venue weeks ago. They promised to discuss our refund upon their business opening up as they could not issue refunds while being closed. Their business has since been opened and they ignore emails, don't show up for scheduled calls, and have now gone silent. We feel they... Read more »
Based on the information in your question it appears clear that the venue is unwilling to refund your money voluntarily. You should contact an attorney that practices consumer law and provide them with your contract and the facts of your situation. If there is a strong case that the venue is...Read more »

In NJ a person can leave their estate to anyone they want. The only person they must give something to is their spouse as they are entitled in most cases to an elective share. That being said we don't know your case so speak to a lawyer to see what if any rights you may have.
You really need to retain an experienced civil litigation attorney to represent you, otherwise you will be at an extreme disadvantage. If it was your insurance company, then contact them and request it.
I live in Florida and separated spouse took a vehicle I owned out of state (NJ)...allowed another person to drive... had an accident... the injured party is suing...my name is listed...as a potential defendant because the vehicle was registered to me...I have about 30 days to respond.
Call your insurance company and let them know you are being sued. They will most likely assign you counsel. If the vehicle was uninsured you will have to get counsel on your own and to defend against the lawsuit.

Since the house was foreclosed on, you will need to file a Bankruptcy in order to avoid liability for the deficiency judgment when the property is sold at sheriff sale. Even if you win against the contractor, the Chapter 7...Read more »

He did not have employment like he told me so he knew he would not have the rent when he signed. He has a history of bad debt, judgements for non payment, jail for check frauds, etc. Is there anything criminal for bad faith entering into the lease knowing he would not be paying?

The difference is a wage garnishment vs a levy. Wage garnishment is up to 10% of weekly pay. A levy is on an asset, including a bank account. It does not matter that it is wages, because unless it is social security, it is not exempt. Hope you see the difference
