In A No Fault Or Uncontested Divorce What Can A Spouse Collect Money On?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: November 30, 2015

Q: If one spouse does not truthfully show his earnings can I bring that before the judge? If the person has annuity money left from a dead family member can the other spouse collect on this? What if there is a accident during a marriage and the spouse was able to collect money (whether the child has the accident or the parent) can the other spouse collect on this? Can a spouse be awarded any monies on a uncontested or no fault divorce?

A:David’s Answer: Generally inheritance and personal injury settlements are one’s separate property. There are several exceptions to this, however, such as if the assets are co-mingled. That said, certainly assets can be distributed even on an uncontested. Schedule a consultation with a NYC Uncontested Divorce attorney for a full assessment.
