Equitable Distribution

Equitable distribution is the resolution of asset division and debt acquisition during the course of a marriage. Before equitable distribution can be achieved in most divorce cases and in most jurisdictions, the Courts must look at several factors. Identifying marital property and accurately assessing property value are factors most commonly considered in determining fair and equitable distribution. The Courts have jurisdiction over the division of marital assets and debts.
