Division of Marital Property

If you are getting divorced in New York, it is important to understand the legal concepts behind division of the marital estate. All marital property that is the subject of a New York divorce is subject to equitable distribution.

People often assume that equitable distribution means an equal division, but it does not. The term equitable does not mean equal, it means just and fair. In limited cases, it may be necessary for a court to award one party to a divorce a greater share of property based on financial need and the financial needs of any minor children.
