Understanding Property Division
Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia all require marital property to be divided equitably. This type of distribution means that any property acquired during the marriage will be divided by family law judges based on a variety of factors, not necessarily equally. Just a few of the factors used by family law judges include:
- Both spouses’ monetary and nonmonetary contributions
- Each spouse’s income
- The length of the marriage
- The age and health of each spouse
- Debts and other encumbrances
- Tax consequences
Because of the relatively subjective nature of property division, a knowledgeable attorney can be helpful. Our lawyers can help you build a personalized legal strategy for your high-asset divorce. We will also investigate whether alimony payments are a potential option.
