Ricardo Tosto, the founding partners of Leite, Tosto and Barros law firm, has been put in charge of reporting a published case of cassation of a judicial decision about the division of assets involving marriage and stable union. It is believed that the stable union was sustained between the plaintiff and a man that was officially still married. However, the relationship between the two people lapsed before the official divorce of the partner. The Fourth panel of the court annulled the decision on the stable union and with division of assets. This is due to the fact that one of the co-workers was still married although the wife was not summoned to appear before the court.
According to Ricardo Tosto, apart from annulling the judgments, the STJ also identified the citation of the ex-wife. The Superior Court of Justice has the right to practice defense in the process that involved the plaintiff and the ex-husband. The companion was already separated although the ex-husband had not left the home on a permanent basis. The plaintiff also noted that the ex-wife never took part in purchasing the assets owned by the man. The man stated that sharing the assets obtained during the marriage would hinder the mediation process with the ex-wife whom she divorced in 2012.
Ricardo Tosto asserts that this case has a double bond possibility. The Rio Grande do Norte Court of Justice (TJRN) acknowledged the stable union. TJRN also determined that the stable union was going to have negative impacts on the third party not mentioned in the law suit. However, it established the sharing of the assets that were acquired during the conjugal relationship.
