Property Division Attorneys in Brooklyn
Ensuring the Equitable Distribution of Marital Property
Dividing the assets and debts that you have accumulated during your marriage is one of the most stressful and contentious parts of a divorce. At Arnel Law Firm, we work hard to find fair solutions to asset distribution through negotiations rather than through drawn-out litigation. That said, our Brooklyn property division lawyers are always trial-ready in the event that a more aggressive approach becomes necessary.
How is Marital Property Divided in New York?
As an “equitable distribution” state, New York requires that marital property is divided equitably (i.e., "fairly," though not necessarily equally) between the spouses in a divorce. It is important to note that property division applies to marital property only; any property acquired or inherited before your marriage will likely be considered separate property and will not be subject to division unless it was with marital property.
New York judges weigh a number of factors to determine how to arrive at an equitable distribution of property, including:
- The length of the marriage
- Earning power of both spouses
- Separate property of both spouses
- Wasteful dissipation of marital assets
- Responsibility and care of any children
