There are a variety of reimbursements that arise in family law matters. For example, one spouse may have used separate property funds to pay for a community property expense during the marriage. That spouse may be entitled to a reimbursement. Additionally, one spouse may have had an existing child support obligation that was paid during the marriage. The community may be entitled to a reimbursement for those payments.
Reimbursements can also arise after the parties separate. One spouse may end up paying many of the community bills after separation – that spouse may be entitled to reimbursement from the other.
It is vital that you keep financial records regarding your various claims of reimbursement. Cooper Hughes can discuss this with you further and work with you to properly identify and present any reimbursements.
