6. Is property purchased during the separation period counted as the financial resources of the purchasing party?
Assets or properties acquired or purchased by one party after or during a period of separation may qualify as non-matrimonial property. This is if the purchasing party acquired it with his personal means and not by using the assets that were created during the marriage. This means if the purchasing party uses funds or resources that are part of the matrimonial pot to acquire other properties, the newly purchased property would still be counted as financial resources of the purchasing party.
