Q: I have been divorced for 13 years and my ex husband was supposed to help fix the house. He has not been doing that and i have asked him many times and he just ignores me. The house is in desperate need of repair especially the stairs and the driveway. I have fixed some things and he has not given me his share only gave $1,00.00 which he reluctantly gave for the windows and the bill was 6,700.00.
A: David’s Answer: It depends on the wording of your settlement agreement, in conjunction with the Judgment. It would otherwise seem unusual to have an open-ended obligation on his part to repair a house he’s no longer in possession of. That said, you’re best advised to schedule a consult with a Westchester Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
