Yes, if the couple was married at least ten years and the surviving spouse is at least 60 years of age (survivors' retirement benefits) or 50, if disabled -- provided the surv…iving ex-spouse hasn't remarried and remained married. He or she must be single when the former husband or wife dies to qualify for compensation. A surviving ex-spouse may receive survivors' benefits at any age if caring for the decedent's natural or legally adopted minor children under age 16. The survivor may remarry after age 60 (or 50, if disabled) without jeopardizing his or her Social Security survivors' benefits.
Yes, but your spouse may lost their green card because of it. They received one because they were married to an American citizen. Normally you need to stay together for 3 year…s in order for your spouse not to lose their green card. Your spouse can aplly to keep it and may be allowed depending on his connections to the US or his reasons for still needing to be resident there. Reasons for their keeping it could be; children, elderly parents who are legally resident, a good job where they won't likely be fired and so have to go on benefits. Ultimately it is up to ICE. But, they'll more than likely lose it if he/she has just received it and you separate and divorce right away. They may also do an investigation to see if you two only got married for them to get a green card, if that is determined to be the case then both you and he can be charged with a federal felony.
It depends on the law of your state. In Texas, all property is presumed to be community property, unless you can show by clear and convincing evidence that it is separat…e. An inheritance is separate property. A spouse cannot be divested of separate property in a divorce. (It can be tapped to pay child support, however.)
How many years of marriage is needed in the state of Indiana to receive half of spouses pension in the state of Indiana divorce laws?
Indiana currently does not have any laws that support any kind of spousal support. During a divorce the amount of the marital assets owed to each party is decided by the Judge… after hearing from both sides during the hearing. Property or assets that are in only one party's name are automatically awarded to that party, unless exceptionally circumstances exist to warrant it going to the other party, such a vehicle being awarded to the custodial guardian of the children instead of the documented owner.
Yes. You and each qualified minor child will receive a separate check or direct deposit based on the number of months of back pay awarded multiplied by the monthly benefit amo…unt. Your children's lump sum payments will be smaller than yours, but should be equal to each other unless one (or more) of your children was born during the settlement period. A child cannot receive back pay for any months awarded prior to his or her birth. The Social Security Administration requires the representative payee to set up separate savings accounts for each child, showing the child as the owner of the account, to ensure the lump sum benefits are protected. For more information, see Sources and Related Links, below.
You can if you were married for at least 10 years, but not until you reach the age of eligibility to receive Social Security benefits. If you have been married more than once,… and if you were married to each husband at least 10 years, I believe you can actually file on the one which would pay the most. But you can file for social security benefits on only one person, whether it's yourself, or one of your ex or deceased spouses.
You can not receive both even if your dead spouse could
No. You can only collect on one person, whether it's yourself, or present/former spouse(s)
Your spouse's income is not a factor.
No. Your spouse can receive them and you can receive them, but you have no right to theirs.
If you were married at least 10 years and the spouse has not remarried, then he/she would receive the standard 50% share from your social security pension. It does not lower y…our payments however. Parenthetically, you can remarry and get divorced numerous times, and the spouse will each get 50% share (assuming that they were each married for minimum 10 years)
It is my understanding that if you & your spouse are living. You can. But! If your spouse is dead. Then SSI let's you decide which check you want to draw from you cannot have… both when one is gone.
Call 1-800-772-1213 or visit Social Security Online for answers. You should contact SSA for specific answer. Of course a teacher can collect social security from a spouse. H…OWEVER, if a teacher worked in a state whose teachers do NOT pay into Social Security (there are 14 of them), their spouse's social security will be reduced. Again, please consult your attorneys, tax advisor, and social security for detailed information and specifics. Ask about WEP (Windfall Provision) and GPO (Government Pension Offset).
Generally yes, assuming you were legally married and didn't do them in. The surviving spouse can collect when they reach 62. If a surviving spouse is caring for a child who is… receiving survivor benefits the spouse can also collect a benefit while the child is receiving benefits, and then it stops until the spouse is eligible for the retirement benefit.
Yes, but the benefit amount will depend upon the surviving spouse's current income level.
Almost certainly not, but check your state's laws. If you mixed up the money in the house and bank accounts, it is going to be tough. If you kept it separate, it should …be pretty clean. Again, this can vary state to state.
It depends on the terms of your divorce settlement and distribution of marital assets. The settlement will be negotiated by your respective attorneys. If you cannot agree then… the court will decide the division. Generally, if one spouse gets to keep the house, it is in exchange for some other property or entitlement such as future alimony. If there is a mortgage on the property it must be addressed prior to the divorce. The person who will be retaining the property should arrange to pay off the mortgage and refinance in their own name. As long as both names are on the mortgage both are equally responsible for payment even if one has transferred their interest in the property to the other by deed.
