Best Answer

Yes. * A lawsuit is possible but the terms of the divorce in most states are not legally binding when it pertains to joint debt. The judge may not allow the dissolution terms to be used as grounds for recovering the debt unless the ex-spouse has already incurred out of pocket expenses connected with those debts.

If your ex is remarried is his new wife responsible for a child support order from a divorce decree?

No. Only the biological parents are responsible for the support of their minor children. I have a different answer: If the parent is being supported by his/her spouse then yes, the new spouse has to pay for child support. Some parents tried to get out of paying child support by not working and letting their new spouse support them but that is illegal. The house hold income is counted.

Is a spouse entitled to a portion of the other spouse's inheritance after the couple divorce?

No. Generally, a divorce decree severs any legal rights either party had to the others estate. Divorce is the termination of the marital relationship between a legally married couple. Once the decree has been issued neither has any legal relationship with the other outside of the provisions set forth in the decree. A divorce decree specifically severs any right to inheritance in the estate of the ex-spouse. As for property inherited by the former spouse either before or after the divorce, you would have no more right to it than to your neighbor's inheritance from their parent.As always, you should check with the attorney who represented you in your divorce who is familiar with your particular situation.
