Divorce & Equitable Distribution of Property

Follow Us

Are you going through a divorce where you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse cannot agree on how the marital property should be divided?

If the two of you can not sit down and come to an amicable agreement, the court will do so for you.  Marital property includes all property acquired by either party during the marriage.  For example:

·     Your home

·     Vehicles

·     Bank accounts

·     Retirement accounts

·     Furniture

·     Stocks, bonds

·     Etc.

If the court makes the decision for you, it will use the following factors:

·     The length of the marriage

·     Age, health, income, employability of each party

·     Did one party contribute to the other’s education?

·     Source of income of both parties

·     Standard of living established during the marriage

·     Any minor children involved?
