Irishman may lose his home over ex-wife’s medical bills
Law means he's liable for $85,000 bill
“She was coming and going as you pleased. I tried to get her help, she tried all kinds of places but nobody could help her,” he added.
In March 2007, a court ruled that Hayes was also liable for the bills amounting to $85,238.88, under the “doctrine of necessaries,” the English common law which imposed liability on husbands for "essential goods and services provided to (their wives or children) by third parties."
“I made the mistake of giving them $60,000 which I have saved for Conor’s education. I was paying $200 a month, trying to get them off her back. Then they started up a new suit,” he told the Irish Voice.
Following the couple’s divorce in January 2007, court documents show that Hayes got ownership of the two properties and that “Karen was responsible for paying the debt to SNHMC as well as any other medical debts or bills.”
As part of the divorce settlement she received one car “valued at $1,200, and her bank account with a balance of $0.00.”
Karen passed away on August 25, 2007, a mere seven months after the couple’s divorce was finalized, leaving Hayes libel for the medical expenses.
Now Welts, White & Fontaine, P.C., who represent SNHMC have notified Hayes that his rental property is to be auctioned. A date for the auction has yet to be set.
A spokesman Welts, White & Fontaine, P.C., declined to comment on the case.
