Our Marital Property Settlement Practice

New Jersey is an equitable distribution state with respect to the division of marital debts and assets. That means that, in a divorce proceeding, if the parties can’t come to an agreement regarding the division of debts and assets, the court will try to fashion an outcome that is “fair,” though not necessarily equal.

We will work closely with you to try to negotiate a property settlement that equitably distributes all debts and property accumulated during your marriage, including:

  • Real property — Home, condo, vacation property
  • Financial accounts — Bank, insurance and investment portfolios
  • Retirement funds — IRAs, 401k/403b accounts, pensions and deferred compensation
  • Business interests — Ownership interest in family or small businesses, business assets

If we are unable to amicably divide the debts and assets of your marriage, we are prepared to take your case to court, in order to get the outcome you want.
