If I no longer contribute to the account after marriage and do not actively manage it, does it remain separate property? 1 Answers as of September 18, 2017

I have a joint brokerage account with my parents prior to getting married where we'll be residing long-term. I am not primary so I do not pay taxes from capital gains. Will appreciation be considered separate or marital property?

What makes it separate property is whether or not it is ever used for marital purposes and whether or not funds from earnings during the marriage are put into the account. I don't know what "where we'll be residing" refers to. If the brokerage account is in your parents and your name only and is neither added to by you nor used by you for marital purposes, it is separate property.
