Equitable Distribution Lawyer Ocean County, NJ

Helping Clients Across Toms River, Point Pleasant, Jackson, and the greater Ocean County area to favorably and equitably divide marital assets during divorce

Dividing a marriage’s assets is one of the most complex aspects of any divorce. Marital property can include things such as a family home, a family business, investments, retirement funds, and valuable material items such as cars, jewelry, and family heirlooms. Properly valuing these assets, and then dividing them in an equitable manner is a difficult task, and requires experience, strategy, and communication to effectively resolve.

At Bronzino Law Firm, we have invaluable experience helping clients to understand the property at issue, and how to legally secure what is rightfully theirs. By regularly communicating with clients in a straightforward and informative manner, we can establish what marital property is a priority to you, and how to effectively negotiate for that property.

We have extensive experience guiding business owners and their families in matters of equitable distribution. We help clients assess the value of their businesses, distribute business assets fairly and develop strong financial strategies.

Marital Property Division in New Jersey

New Jersey is an “equitable distribution” state, which means that marital property must be divided in a way that is equitable, or fair. However, this does not necessarily mean that assets will be split down the middle; fair does not always mean equal. Proper evaluation of assets plays a large role in this process.

There are 16 criteria that courts evaluate when dividing marital property. Some of those factors include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Any existing prenuptial or postnuptial agreement regarding property
  • The present value of the property
  • The tax consequences of the proposed distribution to each party
  • The economic status of each party at the time of distribution
  • Either party’s contribution to the education or earning capacity of the other — for example, whether one spouse supported the other through school or relocated for the other’s job

Given the variety of factors involved in matters of equitable distribution, it is essential to seek representation from a lawyer experienced in these matters. If certain property is over/under valued, you may be taken advantage of in your distribution of property agreement. For example, your home may be valued at X dollars, but current real estate trends make it difficult to actually sell the home for that amount until the market turns more in your favor. These are all factors your Ocean County distribution of property attorney will consider, and be able to advise you in such a manner that protects you from “equitable” deals which are not actually fair to you.
