Not a day goes by without at least one or more of these questions. We hope this list will help you in your decision.
1) Is my spouse entitled to half of everything I own?
Generally speaking, yes. Most assets acquired during the marriage are considered marital property and are subject to equitable distribution. Pre-marital assets are usually considered separate property and would not be entitled to the other spouse at the time of divorce. Also, an inheritance that is not co-mingled with marital funds, or real estate inherited that does not include the spouses name on the title, would normally be considered separate property and would not be entitled to the other spouse as well.
