My wife received dividends and had capital gains during our marriage. Also for the last year before that I was doing trading on her account, and her account is now worth 2x the value. She used her own seperate money to buy these. But from what I read income gained during marriage is community property. Are the dividends and capital gains she accrued to her marriage community property?
Also is the gain in her portfolio that I basically designed and bought part of community property... At this time it is 3x the value. At seperation it was about 2x.
My lawyer says it is not community property but from what I have read it should be? Is my lawyer incorrect? Please respond asap as I have an OSC hearing on Monday Feb 1st.
