How Are Assets Divided in a New Jersey Divorce?
When deciding upon the distribution of assets, 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 following factors:
- The length of the marriage.
- The respective ages of both spouses.
- Each spouse’s physical and emotional health.
- If there are any children involved.
- The income and assets each spouse brought to the marriage.
- Any debts and/or liabilities each spouse brought to the marriage.
- The marital standard of living.
- The financial earning power of each spouse.
