Do We Need To Account For Separate Property After A Long Marriage In Queens?

At the conclusion of a long marriage, you may feel that there’s little that can definitively worked out as “mine” or “yours,” but in reality, there are a number of assets and even cash that may be the separate property of one spouse.

For instance, if a cash inheritance was left to one spouse and deposited into a separate checking or savings account, the value of the inheritance is most likely a separate asset.

On the other hand, a cash inheritance the was deposited into a joint account may be considered a marital asset by the court.
