One of the major issues in any divorce preceding is the equitable division of marital assets, and equitable allocation of marital debt. This means that all property and debt acquired during the marriage are subject to valuation and a division which is equitable under the particular circumstances of your case. It does not matter how property is titled (individually or jointly); rather it matters when the property was acquired. Often, the most contentious issue that arises in divorce is the determination of which assets are separate property (or non-marital property), and which assets were acquired during the marriage. Separate property is property that was owned prior to the marriage, received as a gift from a third person, or was inherited.

Marital Debt Is Also Subject to Equitable Distribution
People are often surprised to learn that marital debt is also considered a marital obligation, subject to equitable allocation, just as any marital asset. The allocation of marital debt needs to be carefully considered when determining the equitable division of marital property.
