Legal Question in Family Law in California

wedding expenses

Been married for 16 months, separated for 5 months, husband filing for a divorce. Wife wants husband to pay her half of what she paid for the wedding costs. Is the husband obligated to pay any of it? Is that a cost she incurred before the marriage and therefore remains her sole debt?

Reply: wedding expenses

The family law court does not have jurisdiction to determine allocation of debts prior to the marriage, only during the marriage.

Good luck to you!
