    Answered . Technically, property acquired after the date of separation with marital funds is divisible property. Practically, the difference rarely makes a significant difference.

    Answered . Divisible under our statutes. But using cash to buy an automobile that depreciates in value prior to distribution can raise additional issues.

    Answered . Agreed
    Classified as divisible as the strict division of marital is "acquired after the date of marriage and prior to the date of separation". The legislature created the category of "divisible" to clarify the issue.
