Property Division in New York and New Jersey
In New York and New Jersey, property acquired during a marriage is typically classified as marital property, with very few exceptions. Separate property is defined as property acquired by a spouse prior to a marriage and limited property acquired during a marriage, including property acquired by gift or inheritance.
All property in a dissolution is subject to court review. While a court may divide marital property on an equal 50-50 basis, equitable division does not require an equal 50-50 split. Courts will also consider the debts of the parties and will divide debts in an equitable fashion (once again, equitable division does not necessarily mean an even 50-50 split).
