Dividing Your Marital Property

During the divorce process, you’ll eventually have to decide how to divide your marital property, which is defined as all the property you and your spouse have acquired from your wedding day until the date you file for divorce. What can be tricky is that even if your marital property is listed in your name, it can still be distributed equally in New York.

Examples of marital property that can be divided in your divorce include:

  • Professional degrees
  • Bank accounts
  • Cars
  • Houses
  • Furniture
  • Pensions and retirement plans
  • Stock portfolios
  • Business interests

The only things that are exempt from classification as marital property include inherited property, gifts from a third party to you or your spouse, and personal injury recoveries. Property acquired prior to your marriage also counts as separate property.

How Marital Property Is Distributed in New York

The division of assets in divorce varies based on state. In New York, a court will consider a variety of factors involving you and your spouse when dividing your property.

Factors taken into consideration include:

  • Duration of marriage
  • Income and property of each party
  • Need of custodial parent to use the marital home
  • Future financial circumstances of each party
  • Tax consequences to each party
  • Loss of pension and inheritance rights upon dissolution of marriage

There are many factors that go into equitable distribution, which means you might not always receive what you believe is rightfully yours. Our Queens property division attorneys have years of experience to handle your legal issues and help you keep what belongs to you.
