Distribution of Marital Property

Often, in addition to custody, one of the most important aspects of a divorce case is the distribution of marital property. Maryland, Virginia, and DC each have equitable distributions statutes, meaning that each jurisdiction divides property based on a fairness analysis, which doesn’t always mean a 50/50 division. Each jurisdiction considers different factors when considering how to fairly divide marital property between two parties. Our attorneys understand the law in each jurisdiction and know what courts focus on when allocating marital assets.
