Equitable property division

A variety of personal and financial factors are taken into consideration before marital property is distributed between divorcing spouses. Property owned and acquired during the marriage, including all assets and debts, is termed marital property, and is subject to equitable distribution. Separate property is not. We fight to protect your interests in property division.
