Q: 

Interest accrued on retirement account after marriage ended

A:  "relevant facts can be demonstrated such that the court decides the marriage is NOT irretrievably damaged" The court never decides that.

"But what about interest accrued on that retirement account AFTER the marriage is ended? Is that community property or not?" Depends entirely on the terms of the divorce decree and any QDRO (google it) that splits the retirement account. You can specify a variety of different things by mutual agreement. If the parties can't agree, the judge makes the decision. If the parties somehow overlook the details of the...

Q: 

CA House Willed to Only Child... Surviving Spouse Claim?

A:  The issue is whether the decedent did anything during the marriage to transmute the home from separate to community, partially or wholly. Divorcing couples deal with this problem frequently. Using community property to pay off part of the loan has many possible outcomes, including a blended title, a debt to the community, or a gift to the decedent, depending on the facts. The surviving spouse may have other evidence. You might look for prior California posts in the family law section for more insight. The procedure should be the same, whether pro per or represented by counsel. The executor will declare the state of title in the inventory, and again in the petition...

Q: 

Chapter 13 and Credit Report

A:  Leon Bayer I don"t like to second guess a fellow attorney unless I have reviewed the complete file and have a personal consultation with the client. However, in this case I think I will "second guess." There are ribbons of truth in what your lawyer has told you about the "phantom discharge" and the relationship between community property and community debt. So far, so good. However the "phantom discharge" is very limited in scope, (see Bankruptcy Code 524(a)(3), and it protects the community property interests of a non filing spouse in marital property after the filing spouse receives a discharge. However, this limited protection exists...

Q: 

Am I liable for my husbands child support debt?

A:  Do you actually have a reported income? If not then the injured spouse form may not work since you may not have actually paid any taxes or entitled to an overpayment. The way to reduce future expose to grabbing a refund is to structure for much lower withholding--but not so low as to trigger underpayment penalities. . I do not believe your experience is unique. Repost your question in the Personal Tax Board as TaxAgent probably can give you the citation, etc.. But, I live in CA, another community property state, and I have heard from others in your situation that filing an Injured Spouse form does not help very much, if at all, in a community property state when it comes to...

Q: 

Unequal property Division due to Parties Filing Bankruptcy

A:  Laymans take: I follow your concern but have few clues as to answers. To me it seems that merely being eligible to file is speculative and not yet an action to be taken into consideration--but its a poker game... Generally valuation is at time of divorce and its not clear if this is tied to divorce or is post divorce "negioations" --but WI courts can deviate for events beyond control of parties--which raises issue of is either bankrupcy filing "involuntary?" My view would be enemy has duty to make his point. Question, if most property goes to satisify creditors then whats left to divide? Pensions and other assets which may not be subject to creditor claims?...
