A: Everything purchased during the marriage is marital property. It's up to the judge, but things purchased during the marriage, even during separation, may be subject to division.

A: Please get a lawyer. Until you receive a final judgment and decree of divorce, signed by a judge, you're married. And anything you buy while married, could be considered marital property, even if you're separated. That's why you shouldn't go out and buy a new house while going through a divorce or while separated. And just like any money you made during your marriage could be considered marital property, and subsequently purchases made with marital funds could be marital property. Good luck to you in this divorce.
