Why I have to divide my own properties?

| Feb 19, 2016 | Uncategorized

Q: We got married overseas, now we live in the US, my wife is American and I enter to the US based on that marriage, nothing about property division in my marriage contract, now we want to divorce in new York.

A: David’s Answer: Pursuant to NY law, it doesn’t matter where in the world you get married, what matters is whether NY has jurisdiction over each of the parties to process the divorce. Thus, any property either of you accrued or materially improved during the marriage, the other may get a share of. Schedule a consult with a NYC Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
