  • High value financial remedy case in which the judge had to decide whether shares that were owned by the husband before cohabitation and subsequently marriage were matrimonial or non-matrimonial assets. The judge held that the only fair way to treat the remaining pre-existing shares (and the others which had been used to purchase investment properties) was to treat them as to half as the personal non-matrimonial property of the husband, and as to half as the matrimonial property of the parties to be evenly shared.
