Chad Johnson is stalling the divorce from estranged wife Evelyn Lozada by refusing to sign the papers. Johnson is reportedly trying to win back the start of VH1’s Basketball Wives, who filed for divorce three days after Johnson allegedly head-butted her during an argument in August. Johnson was arrested following the incident, and Evelyn required stitches to treat her injuries. Lozada does not need Johnson’s signature to end her marriage and can go ahead and have a judge make a ruling to issue a divorce decree. It looks like one strike and Johnson is out.
Challenges are yet to come after divorce. You may have obtained freedom from your spouse but you cannot disappear from the unsettled financial obligations. Divorce decree clarifies that it does not change one’s financial obligation to the creditors. Borrowed money should still be paid as agreed through divorce settlement or by court order. The decree is legally binding on the ex-spouses, but not with the credit card company. Thus, it implies that the company has the right to collect payments from either party. Other investments that are yet to be fully paid should be reconciled before the problem gets worst.
