Baltimore County Marital Property Attorneys
One of the biggest issues in any divorce is the division of property. In Maryland, property must be divided equitably. Equitable does not always mean equal, however. In some cases, each spouse will receive half of the property. In others, an equitable division may mean a distribution that reflects the couple’s unique situation.
Ensuring that you receive what you are entitled to is important, as is your choice of legal representation. At Kreshtool & Kreshtool, P.A., our Baltimore County marital property lawyers are prepared to help you protect your assets and obtain a fair distribution of property during your divorce.
Equitable Distribution of Marital Property
Before any property is actually divided and distributed, the property must be identified and categorized as either marital or nonmarital. Nonmarital property includes things that were owned before the marriage, as well as most gifts and inherited property.
Marital property includes a wide variety of property that is accumulated during the marriage, such as:
When all property is identified and classified, the property is divided as fairly as possible using all relevant factors, including:
The economic situation of each spouse
Whether one parent will have full custody of the children
Financial and non-financial contributions to the marriage
Separate property owned by each spouse
Conduct during the course of the marriage
