Division of Property

Dividing property in a divorce is complex.  All property acquired following a marriage is presumed to be marital property and subject to equitable distribution by the court.  Property must be categorized as either marital or non-marital.  Generally, property acquired during the marriage is presumptively marital property whereas non-marital property includes property owned by a party prior to marriage.  However, property acquired during a marriage may be non-marital if it was acquired in exchange for property owned prior to marriage or was acquired by a party as a gift or an inheritance.  Our firm has vast experience litigating these issues.
