Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Utah

I just found out that there is a $20,000 bond on my house, I am currently going through a divorce and my soon to be ex-wife has done this without my knowledge both of our names are on the house can she do this legally? The bond is for someone she is currently dating. Don't both parties need to sign some type of paperwork? or can it only be one of them?

Answer

The divorce court will normally want an explanation--she cannot really do that w/o your permission and she will be responsible for that
