One of the quickest ways to complicate a divorce is getting engaged before your marriage ends.
What To Expect If You Get Engaged During Your Divorce
When you do so, it’s common for your spouse to raise questions about expensive gifts, including engagement rings, that you’ve purchased, and whether they were paid for with marital funds.
In the worst case, you may be ordered to reimburse your spouse for some or all of the price of the ring or other gifts you’ve given your new fiancee.
Your attorney can advise you on the particulars of big ticket purchases during a divorce, and it’s an area that you would be wise to exercise caution about.
Whether the item in question is jewelry for a paramour, an expensive new car, or even buying a house during a divorce, there are important issues that need to be considered.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you sort out the particulars and protect yourself if you choose to get engaged before your divorce is finalized.
