Gauger v. Gauger

New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division


Decided: January 13, 1976.

ELIZABETH MARY GAUGER, PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT
v.
JOHN JOSEPH GAUGER, DEFENDANT-RESPONDENT

Matthews, Lora and Morgan.

Per Curiam

[138 NJSuper Page 367]

In September 1941 defendant and his mother acquired 91 acres of farmland in Monmouth County, which they held as joint tenants. Subsequently, in 1946, plaintiff and defendant were married. In 1972, while the parties were still married, defendant's mother died. In May 1974 plaintiff and defendant were divorced.

The issue raised on appeal is whether the death of defendant's mother in 1972 resulted in the "legal and beneficial acquisition" of property by defendant during marriage so as to subject the subsequently obtained property to equitable distribution.

The trial judge found for defendant since he concluded that defendant acquired his entire interest in the realty in 1941.

We affirm the judgment of the Chancery Division substantially for the reasons set forth in Judge Heckman's opinion, 132 N.J. Super. 89 (Ch. Div. 1975).
