NEW YORK STATE is an “Equitable Distribution” state. This basically means that all marital property (assets and debts) acquired during the time of marriage are equally owned by both Husband and Wife (even if the item is in one parties’ name). To prevent a long, expensive court battle, knowing that the state considers everything marital property, it is to your advantage to attempt to provide for division of property and repayment of marital debts together. If you are unable to come to an agreement, seek Mediation or an Attorney.
