Property Division In New Jersey
New Jersey is an equitable distribution state. Property acquired during a marriage is typically classified as marital property, with very few exceptions. Separate property is defined as property acquired by a spouse prior to a marriage and limited property acquired during a marriage, including property acquired by gift or inheritance.
Courts must divide marital property in a manner that is equitable (fair). While a court may divide marital property on an equal 50/50 basis, equitable division does not require an equal 50/50 split. When determining how to divide marital property, a New Jersey court will consider the duration of the marriage, the age of the parties, the earning capacity of the parties, the physical and emotional health of the parties, and other factors impacting the equitable interests of the parties.

For some of our clients, receiving an award of the marital home is essential. For other clients, obtaining liquid assets such as savings or investment accounts is critical. We take into account the total impact of issues such as child support, spousal support and property division when handling divorce cases.
We understand that property division disputes can become very heated, but we also know from experience that there are often creative ways to find resolutions to such disputes.
