  • direct deposit from ex??? New Jersey

    when me and my ex got a job working at the same place. We fillied out a paper for the direct deposit. Well at the time his name was not on my bank account. but he did sign the papers to have the money put into my account. Which it has but we broke up and work said that there were not able to stop the direct deposit for this week and his money was put into my bank account. Do i have to give him the money or is it his own fault for putting it into my account. He has said that he is taking me to court to get his money. i was just wondering if he can do that.???

    Yes, he can take you to court to get his money. He can argue that the fact that it was going into your account was just a convenience. It's also not terribly unusual for an employer to need one or two pay cycles to change a direct deposit. I would suggest that the best thing you can do is to give him his money.
    I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!

      Just because you broke up does not entitle you to his money. Think about how wrong that would be and do the right thing.

        Better, put the situation in reverse and see if it would be worth a paycheck to you for the breakup.
