Acquiring assets between the time you file for divorce and reach a final agreement can be tricky, but is often a necessity for you to move on with your life.
Purchasing a vehicle, a home, or other things of value is fine – as long as marital funds aren’t used.
If you and your spouse have separated your finances and you are using funds from an account you have established and solely funded, you should be fine.
If you pull funds from a shared account, the court will view the new asset as something that your spouse has a financial interest in.
Sometimes these issues can become very technical, and you should consult your divorce attorney if you have concerns about whether or how to purchase items of value.
