ASSET & DEBT DIVISION



When a couple splits up, many decisions need to be made related to the distribution of assets, liabilities and property. When people think about divorce one of the questions they almost always get around to asking is, "who gets to keep the house, car, bank accounts?". Property division is an important consideration in every divorce even if you don't always feel great about bringing it up. The court has the responsibility to fairly distribute the marital and non-marital property of the spouses.


Marital property is generally any items acquired during the marriage. And no, it doesn't matter whose name the property is titled in. On the other hand, non-marital property is pretty much everything that you owned before you got married. Keep in mind that a division of property does not necessarily have to be "equal". Courts often make what may at first seem like an unequal distribution based upon the specific circumstances of the marriage. Several factors are taken into account here. Courts generally consider each spouse's contributions to the marriage, both monetary and non-monetary. The ultimate goal is to arrive at a fair solution which takes into account the whole of the marriage. Division of property is often the most troublesome issue in a divorce proceeding.‚Äč
