Selling Marital Property


Did my question get overlooked?


Don’t forget me, please!


Dear hard2battle:

Greetings. Yes, he can do this, as long as you allow it. AND, as long as you are not separated, he is doing this during the marriage and therefore, will not have to account for the proceeds in the separation. Either retain an attorney and start negotiating a resolution NOW or leave. Thank you.

The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion.

My husband and I are getting ready to separate. He has begun, without my permission, to sell things in our home. Of course, he keeps the money, and I have no idea how much he is selling them for. Can he do this? Is there anything I can do?

Your advise will be much appreciated! Thanks!
