Divorce, Separation and the Distribution of Property discusses how various states treat a number of different family law problems such as: the disputes between unmarried partners; breach of promise actions and other disputes over broken engagements; rules governing enforcement of premarital and postnuptial agreements; determining when parties start and stop accumulating marital property; determining the marital component of fringe benefits such as pensions, severance pay, stock options, vacation pay and sick leave, bonuses, and federal retirement benefits; and the division of other types of property at divorce.
It covers the division of a lawyer-spouse’s contingent fee received after divorce, patents and copyrights, personal injury and worker’s compensation recoveries, disability benefits, trusts and remainder interests, professional degrees and licenses, lottery winnings, businesses started before marriage, and goodwill of businesses or practices started during the marriage.
The book also considers related questions, such as whether federal law bars the division of certain federal benefits at divorce; what should happen when premarital property is mixed with property acquired during a marriage; whether a spouse can change premarital property into marital property by changing title; and what factors a court considers when deciding how to divide the marital estate or whether to award spousal support.<
