EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION IN
In Equitable Jurisdiction in
The court will first set aside non-marital assets and liabilities, such as certain of those assets and liabilities that were obtained prior to the marriage. However, certain increases in the value of assets acquired prior to marriage that occur during the marriage can be subject to Equitable Distribution.
Court will then look at a number of factors to determine whether an unequal distribution of the assets is warranted. Some of these factors are the respective contributions to the marriage by the parties, the financial circumstances of the parties, and the duration of the marriage, to name a few.
