Workers Compensation


#1

Is workers compensation considered marital property if the injury happened during the marraige and lead to my husband going on social security disability. If the injury happened in NY and we now live in NC what laws would we follow.
Thanks

Any amount of money received during the marriage is marital property, but the future payments are not marital property. The law of NC would apply if you execute a separation agreement, or go to court in NC. Any money received for lost wages during the marriage is martial property. NC has jurisdiction over your equitable distribution, support, and divorce.
