Property Division And Why It Matters To You In Divorce

Throughout a marriage, a couple may accumulate many assets, real property and personal property. As part of the divorce process, all such assets and items must be valued and divided between the parties.

Property division can be an emotionally charged part of a divorce, with parties fighting over what they believe they deserve. Whether this takes place in court or through an alternative method, I am a property division attorney who can help. At the Rockville law office of Steven J. Gaba, I rely on nearly 25 years of experience when guiding clients throughout the process of dividing property and assets. I am knowledgeable, understanding and driven to assist you.

Many Types Of Property Subject To Division

Any property and assets that you accumulated when you were married up until the date of divorce are considered for division. They can include:

  • Primary homes and vacation properties
  • Other real property, either developed or undeveloped
  • Personal property such as cars, boats and jewelry
  • Pensions
  • Retirement benefits, 401(k)s and IRAs
  • Stock options and other employee benefits
  • Military benefits

How Equitable Distribution Law Works

It is important that my clients understand how property division is dealt with in Maryland. Our state courts follow equitable distribution guidelines for dividing marital assets and debts. This means that there is no guarantee of a 50-50 split of property, but that it is distributed between the parties in a fair and equitable manner. I can review your marital and nonmarital property to provide insights into how the courts may distribute property. With my experience, knowledge and thoroughness, I can assist you.
