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 equitable distribution, this does not always mean a 50-50 division of assets and debts. Before you can begin to divide marital property during a divorce, you need to know which assets are considered marital and which assets are considered nonmarital or premarital. Assets and debts characterized as separate or nonmarital property are not included in the marital estate and are not subject to division, unless there has been commingling of nonmarital and marital assets.
