Going through a divorce proceeding or legal separation and dealing with the distribution of marital assets and property is a challenging process. Having competent legal representation is crucial to safeguarding your financial and proprietary interests.
People often do not realize that most property acquired during marriage is marital property subject to equitable distribution, even if the property is held only in the name of one spouse. Any equity that is accrued during marriage, including any amount accrued in home equity, pension plans, or retirement funds, is considered marital property that is subject to equitable distribution without regard to whether or not one or both spouses contributed financially to its acquisition.
