Like the majority of states, New Jersey follows the “equitable distribution” method when dividing marital property in a divorce. Under the rule of equitable distribution, a divorcing couple’s marital assets are divided fairly, if not always necessarily equally. Marital property is also divided between the spouses regardless of how it is titled.
If you are considering a divorce in New Jersey, you need an experienced family law attorney working on your case from the start. Your financial security depends on having the help and knowledge of a New Jersey property division lawyer.
New Jersey courts consider a laundry list of factors when it comes to dividing marital property.
Some of these factors include:
Courts consider numerous other factors, including factors unique to each couple. Your attorney should never use a one-size-fits-all approach to property division.
