Divorce and Family Law

Allocation of Marital Property and Marital Debt

The idea that spouses must equally divide their property in a divorce is a common misconception. It is common for the Court to begin with the assumption that property and debt will be equally allocated to the divorcing parties. However, the court will also consider a number of other factors including without limitation the earning capacity, non-marital property, and health and well-being of the divorcing parties. It is not unusual for the party with less earning capacity, less non-marital property, or serious health issues to receive more than half of the marital property and less than half of the marital debt.
