How is property split in divorce in Missouri?My mom sold her house and moved in with him before they got married. With the money from the sale, she purchased a bobcat which he has used for business purposes. I'm not sure how it works with heavy equipment but I was told that there was no title to the bobcat just a sales slip which would have to be tracked down.
Originally, her husband offered her anything she wanted, just as long as they got the divorce done. He had said it would be stupid for her to pay for an attorney too since they could work this out. Well, she told him what she wanted which was everything she owned before they got together, the bobcat that was purchased with her money before they were together, and the house. He apparently threw a fit and told her she had just started a war.
His counter-offer is: he'll pay off her car (roughly $12,000) and she can have the furniture that is upstairs. He'll get the house, the bobcat, the boat, the camper, and the furniture that is in the lower half of the house plus he wouldn't make her pay any of his $18,000 worth of debt he racked up.
Initially she agreed just to get everything done with. I feel like he's being a huge...jerk...with his offer. I'm trying to convince her not to agree to it. Her point of view is that she'd have a car, free and clear so she could more easily afford finding a place to live. My personal opinion, she currently has an offer to buy the bobcat for $15,000 plus all the furniture upstairs was already hers besides the couch, tv, and bedroom set...even if she just walked away with the bobcat, she'd be coming out ahead.
My question, since there is no title to the bobcat and he uses it as a part of business, how will this play out? He's promising to screw her over if she doesn't agree and settle quickly.
