Celebrating my Separation


#1

Dear Train Wreck:

Greetings. If you purchase property after the DOS (date of separation), that property is separate UNLESS you purchase the property with funds earned during the marriage. Best of luck.

I am recently legally separated. To help me feel a little better I wanna go buy a $100,000 sports car or invest in another business.

Does “legal separation” mean what I acquire/accumulate post LS is not considered joint property in a divorce? Thereby excluding it from equitable distribution? My soon to be ex and I have only been married 9 months…
