Understanding the difference between Separate Property and Marital Property will help you in dividing all of your property in a DC Divorce.
It may be a surprise to learn that all property acquired after you marry is considered “marital property,” even if you have bank accounts, investment accounts, cars, etc. titled in your sole name. The exceptions to this include inheritance and gifts received during your marriage that are generally considered separate property. However, this can be complicated, so it is best to discuss with a DC Divorce attorney to understand your specific situation.
