How assets are divided in a New Jersey divorce

State law does not require a 50/50 split of assets, only that the division be equitable. Generally, all property acquired by you or your spouse during the marriage is considered marital property subject to division. Non-marital property is separate property and can include gifts, assets and businesses acquired before the marriage. Non-marital assets can be exempt from division.

Of course, not all the assets are physically divided. A total value for all assets may be established, and then you and your spouse each receive items or money that adds up to the percentage you are entitled to. The percentage is determined by agreement or by court order.

Hammering out the best possible deal

A significant portion of most divorce litigation centers on what property is marital and what is separate. Once that is determined, there is always debate about who takes which assets. In some instances, a business or asset acquired before the marriage gains value. That increased value might be considered divisible property. The issues in high-asset divorces are rarely clear-cut. Our divorce attorneys can make sense of even the most complex cases. We vigorously litigate and negotiate to ensure that you receive your fair share of assets.
