Question #143

Is New York State a community-property state? Thank you.

No, New York is not a “community property” state. However, New York has what is called “Equitable Distribution,” which is similar to community property. It provides the judge hearing the case with somewhat more discretion to allow one party to receive more or less than the other party, depending on the circumstances.
