What Is Equitable in Marital Property Settlements?

Marital property consists of all of the assets and property acquired by you and your spouse after you have married. These assets are shared between you and are differentiated from separate property. Separate property is property owned by you prior to becoming married or titled to you during marriage through inheritance or gift. It is also property designated as separate in a prenuptial agreement. Separate property is not subject to division in a divorce action.

Marital property consists of all assets and property as mentioned above including art, collectibles, vehicles, businesses, and even career education, training, or professional licenses. In such complicated matters, dividing a business or advanced career training is not often feasible, which will lead to one spouse retaining such property while the other is compensated to make up the difference.

Courts will look at numerous factors in determining what is fair and equitable when it comes to this issue including the needs, financial conditions, ages, health, and more of both you and your spouse.
