Hi. I'm in California. The gov site does not include online instructions for this form, and I'm stuck on something. Most questions on the first and second pages clearly differentiate between my property/income and my spouse's. But section 11 asks about assets--cash, stocks, bonds, real and personal property. I have a few questions about this section.
1) Is this section asking about my assets only--those that I currently have as a separated spouse--or all of our combined assets? If the first one, how do I handle the money in the joint bank account we still have?
2) What precisely counts as personal property? Every item, down to the last roll of toilet paper? Or every item that has potential resale value?
3) If this section is asking about combined assets, am I supposed to estimate what my spouse has or ask him to give me precise numbers so that I can fill in the form?
I'm sure I'll think of other questions, but that's it for now.
