When a marriage ends, all marital property and debt need to be divided equitably amongst the parties. However, due to the factors considered by the court in determining how your marital property will be divided, this does not always mean a 50-50 split of assets and debts.
Although courts can consider the positive contributions that a spouse made to the marriage, such as contributions to the care and education of the children and services as a homemaker, courts also take into consideration negative contributions that a spouse made to the marriage, such as squandering, depleting or destroying marital assets.
Dissipation or destruction of marital assets occurs when one spouse intentionally conceals, conveys or wastes assets in anticipation of divorce or during the divorce process.
There has been a significant amount of litigation in this area of the law, and the lawyers at the Law Office of Cheryl Bucker, P.A., will passionately fight for your rights.
