We have recently separated. The RV was officially paid for within a few days after we began spending time apart. If titled only in my husbands name would there be any issues of equal ownership if we divorce?
Generally, anything purchased during the marriage is marital property, subject to an equitable division in a divorce. An exception would be if the money came from his separate property, such as a gift or inheritance.
File for a divorce. Using a lawyer. First initial conference is next week. The respondent has not file a response. Change of mind and heart. Can the stipulated motion to dismissed be file by petition it self, without the lawyer? Thank you in advance for your help.
You will have to go through your lawyer. Your lawyer should not have a problem with this. If your lawyer is unwilling to do this, you can ask the lawyer to withdraw and then you can file it yourself. This could also be handled at the initial status conference.

This house is marital property since it was purchased during the marriage. Also, it is titled jointly. Marital property is to be allocated "equitably', which mans "fairly", not necessarily "equally". The court will probably not care who made the payments, especially if...Read more »
You do not need any special language. It does not matter when she cashes the check. The key is that she needs to put it into a separate account in her name only. If she puts it in a joint account with her husband, it will be considered marital property in the event of a divorce.
She had 2 years to get refinanced and now it 4 months past that. I keep filling motions because it was already meditated, but she won't comply and won't agree to a new mediation. My last motion to go back to the original order has been denied. What can I do ? She's just prolonging... Read more »
We are going through a divorce and the town has now rented a property purchased by us, the town to him for one year. This act caused many problems and turned an amicable divorce ugly with children involved.

I cosigned for an ex partner, the relationship was abusive and I no longer have any contact with her at all. She has since missed 23 payments on that car and is still affecting my life. How do I go about getting my name off of the car and not hurting my credit anymore than it is already hurt?
If you are married, you can file for dissolution and property settlement. If not, when you co-signed, you agreed to pay if she did not. Absent her consent to refinance in her own name, you are legally obligated to pay if she does not.
