What factors determine how property is divided?

There is no exact formula for determining how property is divided, but the court takes many factors into consideration:

 

?         The financial circumstances of each spouse

?         The contributions of each spouse in acquiring the property to be divided, including contributions as homemaker

?         The value of the non-marital property that each spouse will retain

?         The conduct of the parties during the marriage, including instances of abuse, harassment, or infidelity

?         Child custody arrangements

 

Determining how to divide property is a complex process with many variables.  Consult an attorney to discuss how the particular circumstances of your case may influence how property is divided and for help in protecting those assets to which you are entitled.
