Girlfriend Account


#1

Dear crybaby:

Greetings. I would include ANY account that has his name on it or had his name on it on the date of separation (or during the marriage). YES, include that account. Thank you.

Thank you!!!

Finally, I’m handling life and bills. My accounts sometimes appear like they have money but by the time I pay everything its empty. How does the court view each person’s bank account? Meaning, if you have some savings, how is it viewed and does it become a part of equitable distribution. Money in my account is used for bills and living - no extra.

Dear crybaby:

Greetings. Money and bills existing on the date of separation are looked to for determining the amount of property that exists to divide. Ongoing account activity after the date of separation is typically not relevant to how much marital property there is to divide, unless one party is spending marital funds recklessly. I hope that answers your questions. Thank you.
