My mother is divorcing my Dad in New York, but may die before

This answer was rated:

My mother is divorcing my Dad in New York, but may die before judgment or settlement. Does her claim for division of marital property survive her--can it still be prosecuted by her estate?

The claim will not survive her and the marital property would in turn rest with your father.
