    She wasn't there for any portion of the events of that night.

      she is married to Zimmerman? Marital assets would be at risk in a civil suit against George.

      I know you're not a lawyer, but, really, dude, get with it.

      •  That's not liablity on her part (1+ / 0-)

        In other words, they can't get a judgment against her. They own no real estate and don't seem to have much in the way of join assets. They'd never be able to attach her wages, for example or a bank account or real estate held only in her name. They obvious way to avoid this isn't to lie, its to keep as little as possible in George's name.

        •  A couple of problems for Shellie. (0+ / 0-)

          In Florida, examples of marital property are:

          • A bank or investment account that both spouses deposited pay checks into.
          • A car purchased during the marriage, no matter whose name the car is titled.
          • A retirement account funded during the marriage.

          It would be difficult to shift things away from George without running into fraudulent conveyance problems.
