Customer Question
We have filed our divorce...
We have filed our divorce in Sep and have been physically separated. If I now started a bitcoin investment, that will be still considered shared property then? Anything I may gain through this investment needs to be shared with my wife?

I am sorry you are having to deal with the divorce process;

Post separation acquisitions are not considered marital property so the court would not have jurisdiction to divide that asset; here is that statute:

3501. Definitions.

(a) General rule.--As used in this chapter, "marital property" means all property acquired by either party during the marriage and the increase in value of any nonmarital property acquired pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (3) as measured and determined under subsection (a.1). However, marital property does not include:

(1) Property acquired prior to marriage or property acquired in exchange for property acquired prior to the marriage.

(2) Property excluded by valid agreement of the parties entered into before, during or after the marriage.

(3) Property acquired by gift, except between spouses, bequest, devise or descent or property acquired in exchange for such property.

(4) Property acquired after final separation until the date of divorce, except for property acquired in exchange for marital assets.
