Stock Options Granted During Separation Period


#1

I am currently unemployed and separated from my STBX but I have been offered a position that as part of the compensation package includes stock options. If I accept the position and purchase the options that have been offered to me are those options my sole property or part are they considered marital assets and must be divided as part of the divorce settlement? Thanks in advance for your help.

They will be your separate property as they were acquired after the date of separation.
