If my accounts and car are in my name, do I get to keep them in the divorce?
And the same goes with your banks and your accounts that you have in your sole name. They could be classified as community property even if they're in your name only if it was money or if the money in the account was acquired during the marriage. And that's one of the reasons it's important that you speak with your attorney and classifying these certain assets. So you have an idea going into mediation or a final trial of what possibly could be yours once the estate is divided.
