Deciding Who Gets What In Divorce
Much of the divorce process is about money and property. Marital assets and marital debts must be identified, valued and divided according to Pennsylvania’s principle of equitable distribution. Recognizing whether an asset or debt is marital or nonmarital is a critical first step in resolving this issue.
Once the marital estate is defined, assets must be valued and then fairly divided. The valuation process can be difficult, especially with certain types of pensions and retirement benefits. The method of division is also critical, involving numerous economic factors that can impact the division between the parties. Finally, tax considerations need to be applied so that the overall division does not carry a hidden financial time bomb.
