What Is Considered Non-Community Marital Property in New York?
When you enter into a marriage, you are entering into a legal contract. Both spouses may bring some assets into the marriage that will remain separate assets, not considered marital property in the event the marriage ends in divorce.
As an experienced divorce lawyer with more than two decades of experience, I have represented clients with significant personal, non-community property to protect in their final settlement. I invite you to learn more about non-community property on this page. Contact my offices in New Paltz, New York, to arrange a consultation to discuss your specific circumstances.
