New Jersey is an equitable division state in divorce. That can complicate real estate issues. Property that you purchased as a couple will be divided by court in a “fair and equitable” manner. Remember, equitable does not mean equal. There are several factors that the court will use to determine what it considers fair in property distribution. Our legal team can work with you to protect your property rights in a divorce.
Assets Owned Before A Marriage Are Exempt
Assets and debts that you owned before the marriage, acquired after filing for the divorce, and if the property was a gift that was meant specifically for you are exempt. We can work with you to make sure your real estate and property is documented accurately and that you receive the property that is rightfully yours.
Factors the court will consider in your property distribution include:
- Marriage length
- Age/health of the spouses
- Alimony/spousal support
- Child custody
- Contributions to the marital estate
- Earning capacity of the spouses
- Standard of living during the marriage
