About Equitable Distribution

In Maryland, divorcing couples must apply equitable distribution when dividing assets and property. This means that assets and debts acquired during the marriage are divided fairly but not necessarily equally. Our attorneys can help you navigate this process and work toward a resolution that protects your financial interests.

Know The Difference Between Marital And Nonmarital Property

It’s essential to distinguish between marital and nonmarital property during asset division. Marital property typically includes assets acquired during the marriage, while nonmarital or separate property may include assets acquired before the marriage or through inheritance or gifts. Our attorneys can assist in identifying and valuing jointly owned and separate assets to ensure a fair division.

Division Of Debts

In Maryland, debts acquired during the marriage can not be divided up directly by the Court. I.e. the Court can not say that the husband has to pay the American Express bill that is in the wife’s name or vice versa. Your credit card bill or other unsecured debt is your debt only. However, the Court will take into account which spouse has debts that were incurred during the marriage when it determines a monetary award. Only in certain specific circumstances can a Court order a party to ‘contribute’ towards a debt. The Court can’t change who is obligated under the credit card agreement or mortgage to ultimately be responsible to provide payment. But contribution can be ordered towards a debt (mortgage of home) when one party is granted use and possession of the home due to having custody of the children.
