equitable distribution

 

One of the trickier areas of divorce is equitable distribution. When emotions are intense, it’s difficult to think logically and with a clear mind. It’s only natural to want to hold on to parts of the marriage rather than face the fear of fairly distributing your assets. Somehow, this represents finality.

Additionally, there is the question of what exactly is fair and equitable distribution, and how is it possible to work it out fairly to both parties?

What is Equitable Distribution?

When a married couple divorces, it is necessary to divide property. Equitable distribution doesn’t always mean a 50/50 split, but rather a fair outcome for all parties.  There are questions to explore and many factors to consider:

  • What is marital property and what is considered separate property?
  • The evaluation of each spouse’s property; for example: business, real estate, and financial portfolio
  • How much did each spouse contribute individually to acquiring said marital properties?
  • How much did each spouse contribute to the earning power and educational potential of the other?
  • Are there any prenuptial agreements?
  • The duration of the marriage
  • What were the spouse’s income and property when they married and what are they now?

These are only a few of the many factors to consider when taking apart the issue of equitable distribution.
