Division of Marital Assets in New Jersey
Morris County Attorney Pursuing Fair Property Division
Divorce can be one of the most stressful events in your life and the battle to retain your assets can add to the stress. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state and all assets gained over the course of the marriage are divided fairly, not necessarily evenly, by the court. Enlisting the service of an established attorney in Morris County can help to ensure that you receive the assets you need. Our lawyer at Levine & Levine can use his experience as a litigator and mediator to work towards finding a division of marital assets that works well for you.

What Is Considered When Dividing Assets?
The court normally examines many factors, such as:
- The health of both parties
- The standard of living in the marriage
- Any prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements
- What property was brought into the marriage
- The income capacity, training, and education of each party
- The responsibilities in the child custody arrangement
Types of Property & Assets that Often Need to Be Divided
Even if a New Jersey court believes an equitable, or fair, division of assets would involve a 50-50 split, it does not mean that every asset is able to be evenly split up. There are certain assets that are unable to be divided, such as a home, vehicle, inherited items, personal possessions, and others. Other things that can be divided are debts, mortgages, business interests, and retirement plans.
