There are currently nine states which offer Community Property status. These states are: Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin. The "marital property act" defined Wisconsin as a community-property state, but individual circumstances will dictate how this act is interpreted.

The property laws in these nine states look at property purchased during a marriage as community property and both husband and wife have an equal right to possess the property during their marriage.

Why did Michelle Obama voluntarily resign from the bar?

Like her husband did when he chose to stop being an attorney and concentrate on politics, Mrs. Obama chose to leave the legal profession voluntarily. (Reports that she was forced out or that her law license was taken from her are false.) Mrs. Obama decided the focus of her life was going to be helping her husband with his campaign, as well as taking on a number of charitable causes. So she voluntarily let her law license expire. She is still a member in good standing, however, and if she ever decides to be an attorney again, she can simply follow the procedures to renew it.

Can Sallie Mae garnish your new husband's wages or taxes on two student loans that you cosigned with your ex-husband - which are now in default?

I have 7 years experience in Defaulted student loans and can not definitively answer this question. My professional opinion is no, but I suggest you call the Dept. of Ed. at 1-800-4Fed-Aid. If they can't give you a definitive answer, then contact the Dept. of Ed. Ohmbudsman's office. If you want your name off of the defaulted student loans, have your ex-husband consolidate the defaulted loans in only his name. You will then be off the hook. It is tough to get defaulted student loans consolidated through a new federal lender these days. One company that I'm sure can help is Default Management Services, Inc. They are the cheapest I have seen and give a 100% money back guarantee on their services. You can Google the company name to get the phone #. Ask for Doug.

If a husband wife are named on a lease and the wife is the only one to sign the lease is the husband obligated to the contract?

In general, states limit the right of a plaintiff to enforce a contract for real property rights (including a lease), unless there is a document signed by the defendant. Your particular state may interpret a lease as a contract that could be enforced if the husband actually acted as if there were a lease, even if he didn't personally sign it, but there could be complicated issues of fact and evidence worth discussing with an attorney.
