One of the many issues that will need to be resolved when a couple divorce is how to divide their assets. According to state guidelines, the assets are first divided into marital and non-marital property. Marital property is a term used to describe any assets accumulated during the course of the marriage. Non- marital property, which is not distributed in the divorce settlement, includes assets acquired prior to the marriage as well as inheritances and gifts.
Any liabilities that were incurred during the relationship are also cataloged. The next step is to determine asset value. Once the worth of the marital property has been established, both your assets and liabilities are fairly divided.
