Splitting of assets acquired after separation


#1

Hi - quick question… My boyfriend moved out of the marital home last sept with “no intent of returning”. Separation agreement still not signed. His company is about to get purchased which will earn him a lot of money. Is the wife entitled to half? Thank you.

The process of dividing property in equitable distribution only pertains to marital property. Income earned after the marriage is separate property. His increased earnings could be taken into consideration for alimony purposes though. It would not go to increase her standard of living, but it would change his ability to pay alimony.
