FINANCIAL ISSUES - MARITAL PROPERTY V. SEPARATE PROPERTY

Question #264:
Love your website which is so helpful to people who desperately need help for divorce!
I'm living in Atlanta, Georgia. My husband is a self-employed, he made twice as much as mine but he is financially irresponsible. I added his health insurance on my employer sponsored family plan during our many yrs marriage. Now I lost my job and filed for divorce because he treated me badly for years. May I claim to compensate for my contribution to his part health insurance? Another question: He spent fortune on his model train layout during the marriage. I don't know exactly how much the value is. May I demand him to report the value?
Thank you very much! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Answer:

The health insurance costs which you provided during the marriage are not reimbursable.
However, your spouse’s model train collection is marital property and you should have a 50% interest in it.

Good Luck!
