Justice For Jules: Judge Rules In Her Favor To Sell Apartment In Nasty Divorce!

Jules Wainstein spent her first single Valentines Day in court, and while it wasn’t romantic, she left with a victory!

It’s no secret that Jules is strapped for cash, and her shady husband Michael is not doing anything to make the situation better; he’s only making it worse!

Michael has failed to pay on the apartment, leaving Jules and her children in an eviction crisis! He also fell behind on the school tuition, and isn’t paying child support. Right now they owe $72,000 on the apartment alone!

Allegedly Jules and her two young children Jagger and Rio reside on the 3rd and 4th floors of the Arthorp apartment, and those specifically are the floors facing eviction!

There is a problem. We’re in the middle of eviction proceedings. Our client was forced to get a lawyer to avoid being thrown on the street with her children,” Jules’ lawyer told the judge. Adding, “Only the two floors our client and the children are on are facing eviction, not the one Mr. Wainstein resides on.

It was expected that Michael is currently living with his girlfriend, but the exact location has yet to be disclosed. It sounds like they own more than just the two floors, and that Michael may be hiding out somewhere else in the building.

Her lawyer continued, “Apthorp needs to be sold. It’s the only asset he will admit is a marital asset. It’s the only asset where there is money for this family to pay debts and find resolution to this case. All we get is, ‘I have no money,’ yet he’s paying his own expenses but not your honor’s orders. He paid a certain amount to avoid content. Children’s school is saying they can’t enroll this year,” he explained.

Then he made a very valid point. “Their lien is only growing every month. Ms. Wainstein is more affected than your client because it’s her name on the apartment. She should be allowed to sell it,” her lawyer defended!

Ultimately the judge sided with Jules, and she is allowed to sell the apartment and benefit from the proceeds.

Jules and Michael are headed back to court on March 28.

This may be the nastiest divorce in housewives’ history, and Jules was only on RHONY for one season. Michael looks horrible in this situation; what kind of man funds his own life, but risks his children ending up on the street. She is SO much better off without him!

Thoughts on Jules’ victory? Do you think Michael is hiding out somewhere else in the building? Should Jules return to RHONY? Is this the nastiest divorce in housewives’ history?

    Jules its time to get a real job. Maybe Bravo will take you back.

    Your article is incorrect, how could they sell an apartment that they are being evicted from?

    They own an apartment in the Apthorp building in the Upper West Side while renting 3 floors of a building in Flatiron.

      I don’t know about their personal finances, but the article is not necessarily incorrect. Her lawyer was saying the apartment is the only item the husband admits is a marital asset, so I think the issue with the apartment must be unpaid association dues or something of that nature. The quote was about a “lien” growing larger by the day, which is what would happen on an apartment that is an owned asset but is in arrears to the co-op or management company that is seeking eviction to foreclose on their lien for payments in arrears.

      And whoever transcribed the quote: All we get is, ‘I have no money,’ yet he’s paying his own expenses but not your honor’s orders. He paid a certain amount to avoid content. <<—- that word should be "contempt", as in contempt of court (for not paying whatever he was ordered to pay).
