Financial problems can arise at any time in life, especially when two New Jersey spouses decide to end their marriage in court. Divorce is never easy, and if spouses do not agree about financial issues, things can get messy. This is reportedly what caused a snag in divorce proceedings for Donald Trump, Jr., age 40, and his estranged wife, Vanessa Trump, also age 40.
When Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from her husband of 12 years, with whom she has had five children, it was an uncontested divorce. Since that time, however, certain issues have surfaced, prompting a contested divorce. Some say the main issue is an inheritance Vanessa Trump’s late father left his daughter in his final will and testament.
The inheritance is supposedly worth millions. Trump, Jr. has reportedly been trying to find out exactly how much money his former wife has in her bank account. Inheritances intended for one spouse only are typically not subject to property division in divorce. Unless both spouses are named in a person’s final will, inherited monies are not usually considered jointly owned marital assets.
Trump, Jr. has hired an attorney to act on his behalf in court, who says he is confident that the current financial issues will be resolved swiftly and amicably between the Trumps. If a New Jersey spouse is currently facing similar problems regarding property division in divorce, he or she can reach out for legal support as well. Many times, an experienced attorney can help a spouse overcome such obstacles to achieve a fair and satisfactory outcome.
