Classifying and Dividing Marital Property During Divorce

Over any length of time ― whether it was five years or five decades ― a husband and wife will accumulate many types of marital property, assets and debts.

They want to ensure a fair division of marital property is made, a division that considers all their contributions to the shared finances.
