State: 
New York

Answer: 

Property division in a divorce is not quite as simple as that. Whether or not your name is listed as owner of various marital property does not establish ownership. The court will do that for you if the two of you cannot agree on the split yourselves. New York is an equitable property divsion state and the court will divide the property according to what is fair, but not neccessarily equal. It sounds like you need to speak to a divorce attorney to make sure your position is best represented. – The Divorce.com Team Wendy Jaffe and Divorce.com can only provide general information about divorce.
