The cut-off date is that date used by the court to determine the actual period of time the marriage should be consider intact for purposes of determining what property and debts are marital or community and the actual value of those assets and debts.
Since the division of the marital property is such a major issue in a divorce, this cut-off date can become a very important variable and is often heavily debated. A certain cut-off date may favor one side much more than the other. Certain states tend to use the actual separation date and others use the date in which the petition or complaint is filed. It is wise to know what is typical in your state according to the divorce law. In unique situations a separate cut-off date can be applied to certain assets and debts if agreed upon or deemed appropriate by the courts.
The difference in a cut-off date can change the value of the property to be divided as well as possibly changing the classification from marital to separate, so beware of what date is being used to settle your divorce.
