Marital and Separate Property

Clients often come to us with concerns about how the assets they acquired before or during their marriage may be considered by the Court.

The Fourth Department recently found that a Husband who failed to offer any evidence establishing the amounts he contributed to his deferred compensation account before or during a marriage, was not entitled to a separate property claim and thus the Court properly classified the entire account as marital property.
