What is equitable distribution?
New Jersey is an “equitable distribution” state. This means that property division is based on what is best for both parties, but does not necessarily mean a straight 50/50 split. Equitable distribution of property can be mutually agreed upon or set by the court. Factors involved in the court’s decision may include:
- The length of the marriage
- The age, education, physical condition, and earning capacity of each spouse
- The standard of living established during the marriage
- The contribution of each party to the success of the other
- The needs of a custodial parent
Along with these are a number of other factors including anything the court may deem relevant to ensuring each party is financially protected. Attorney Carbone has over 25 years of experience with New Jersey divorce law. He will stand by your side and fight for the most equitable distribution possible.
