Equitable Distribution of Marital Assets in Nassau County

Since New York is an equitable distribution state, when a couple divorces, their marital property must be divided fairly. This does not necessarily mean that there will be an equal split, however. The judge will consider several factors to make a judgment that is fair for both parties.

Marital Property vs. Separate Property

During a divorce, a court will only divide a couple’s marital property. In general, marital property refers to that property that has been acquired by the couple during their marriage. It can include income, retirement benefits, cars, houses, and any other assets obtained while they were married.

There are also assets that are referred to as separate property. These are assets that belong exclusively to one spouse or the other that will not be divided when a couple divorce.

For property to be considered “separate,” these assets must be one of the following:

  • Property acquired before marriage
  • Compensation received for injuries
  • An inheritance given solely to one spouse
  • Specifically delineated as separate property in a prenuptial agreement
  • The proceeds or appreciation in the value of separate property, unless the other spouse contributed to that appreciation
