York County Equitable Distribution Attorneys
At Malone & Neubaum, we are sophisticated property division professionals. We understand the nuances of property division and carefully trace assets to ensure separate property remains separate, and all marital property is accurately classified.
Pennsylvania courts divide marital property based on what is equitable. This does not mean that property gets divided equally between the spouses. Instead, courts examine a myriad of factors including, the financial situation of both parties, whether minor children are involved and the earning capacity of each spouse, to reach a fair division of marital assets.
Because only marital property is subject to equitable division, it is important to accurately classify which properties are marital, and those that are owned separately by each individual spouse.
Determining which properties are separate and those that are marital is a complicated process. Individual properties must be traced to ensure they were not commingled or inadvertently converted into marital property.
