We Guide You Through Each of the Steps When Dividing Marital Property in Maryland
Dividing marital assets during a divorce can be a complex process. In Maryland, the courts follow a three-step approach to ensure a fair division. First, they classify each asset and debt as either marital or nonmarital. Then, a monetary value is assigned to each marital asset and debt. Finally, the assets and debts are divided in an equitable manner, which may not always lead to an even split.
Assets that are considered in the division process include properties, vehicles, savings accounts, investments, retirement plans, jewelry, furniture, and anything else of significant value.
Factors That Influence Property Division
In Maryland, the court takes several factors into account when determining an equitable division of property. These factors include:
- The financial and nonfinancial contributions made by both spouses
- The value of all property interests
- The economic circumstances of each spouse at the time of divorce
- The duration of the marriage
- The age, physical condition, and mental health of each spouse
Additionally, details such as how and when certain property items were acquired can also affect the division.
