Does statement below mean that ex husband is also responsible for payments if he did not do as ordered in divorce decree?

  • By: David Bliven

Q: Upon completion of the transfer herein to wife, wife hereby indemnifies and holds husband harmless from and against any claims and or liabilities with respect to said premises, including but not limited to payment of maintenance, mortgage, taxes, water/ sewage charges, insurance and utilities

A:  No – that particular language is merely an indemnification clause. One would need to review the entire agreement to understand the context & advise as to whether there’s a separate provision requiring some form of payment. You’re best advised to schedule a consult with a Bronx Divorce Attorney for a full assessment.
