Even the most amicable divorcing couples can fail to see eye-to-eye on who should receive what when it comes to their marital property. This can be a particularly contentious issue in New York, where we have "equitable distribution" of property. It is critical that you have knowledgeable and assertive counsel during this process to ensure that your stake in your marital property is thoroughly illustrated to the court.

Some states seek to divide marital properly evenly between both spouses. In New York, the court is looking to establish property division that is fair. As you might imagine, this leaves a lot of room for interpretation. Marriages are complex relationships and it's up to each spouse to assert their claim to the property before the court.
What will the judge consider when dividing property?
