How Are Assets Divided in a New Jersey Divorce?
When deciding how assets will be distributed, the court looks at a variety of factors. These are taken into account in order to determine what distribution arrangement is fair for both parties involved.
When determining the fair distribution of marital assets, the court looks at:
- The length of the marriage
- The respective ages of both spouses
- Each spouse’s physical and emotional health
- Any children involved
- Incomes and property brought into the marriage
- Any debts and/or liabilities
- The standard of living
- Marital residence
- Each spouse’s financial earning power
