What Does Equitable Distribution Mean?

Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean that both spouses will share their assets 50/50 after they have divorced. Rather, the courts will decide what is fair for each spouse and what will not leave one or the other at a disadvantage. For example, one of the issues that couples tend to argue most is about the marital home—to whom does it belong? Other questions will arise, such as who will pay for any remaining debts?

Marital property can run a broad range of matters, such as:

  • Real estate
  • Bank accounts
  • Business expenses
  • Automobiles
  • Furniture
  • Debt

Keep in mind that all separate property is not included in equitable distribution matters. Separate property includes any possessions or items that were given prior to the marriage, such as gifts or inheritances. So, let’s say that you bought and maintained the home with assets that remained separate throughout the marriage, the home would belong to you.
