Separate Property

Is the “separate property” of one spouse subject to be divided by equitable distribution?

— Ryan R.


Answer

No. You don't have a right to someone else's property. You only have a right to equalize the value of property acquired during the marriage, with some exceptions and exemptions. See the article in this website about equalization. http://galbraithfamilylaw.com/equalization/
