Legal Answers
43 Questions Answered
Q. Am I entitled to a portion of my wife's house even though it's in her and her mom's name
A: As always, it depends. What was the arrangement between your wife and her mother in the purchase of the home, did your wife use premarital money to make payments towards the home (taxes, maintenance, mortgage, etc.) during the marriage, or did you have a premarital or postmarital agreement between you and your wife that excluded you from obtaining any interest in the home? In Utah, if your wife was making principal payments from her active income earned during the marriage (marital property/earnings), not passive income from premarital assets, this could mean you have an interest in the home. You would have to calculate how much marital money was spent on the home and what the increase in the value of the home from any such expenditures from those marital earnings was during the marriage. You would be entitled to one-half of the increase of the value of the home attributable to payments made from your wife's marital earnings.
Q. In Utah are you required to turn over financials in a grandparent visitation case?
A: Short answers, based on the following, applicable rule, are sort of, maybe, and yes, unless you seek a discovery protective order (which will cost even more money and may not be granted). This is from Rule 26.1, Utah Rules of Civil Procedure https://www.utcourts.gov/rules/view.php?type=urcp&rule=26.1: (2) In cases where assets are not at issue, such as paternity, modification, and grandparents’ rights, a party must only serve: (A) the party’s last three current paystubs and the previous year tax return; (B) six months of bank and profit and loss statements if the party is self-employed; and (C) proof of any other assets or income relevant to the determination of a child support award. The court may require the parties to complete a full Financial Declaration for purposes of determining an attorney fee award or for any other reason. Any party may by motion or through the discovery process also request completion of a full Financial Declaration.
Q. Can I get emancipated from a family that's abusive without legal consent from my parents? I'm 16
A: The quick answer: you are on your way. You usually have to complete your high school education and show that you have provided for yourself and can continue to provide for yourself for at least 6 months before you can be emancipated.
