What assets can be divided in a divorce?

| Jul 23, 2012 | Divorce |

Question:

My husband and I are planning on divorce. His assets are under his parents name and he earns as much as I do. Can I claim any?

Answer:

I believe the question that you are asking is, do you have any claim to assets that are in your husband’s parent’s name. The short answer to that question is no.
That being said, if you can show that he transferred those assets to his parents to avoid dividing them in the divorce, the court could offset those assets from other marital assets or order him to reimburse you for the value of those assets. To fully answer this question, we would need to know more facts about your situation.
