27-year Wait is Too Long to Find Assets
In a recent decision by the Cuyahoga County Court of Appeals, the Court held that a woman waited too long to try to reopen her divorce case on the allegation that a pension asset was hidden from her by her ex-husband. In the case of Rodgers v. Rodgers, the Court held that the ex-wife’s wait of 27 years was simply too long – even though it was somewhat clear that the large pension asset had been hidden from her at the time of her divorce. Thought: Do you homework before you sign a divorce papers or divorce decree and don’t dilly dally if you learn or believe that your ex-spouse his some assets from you during your divorce).
