One of the most important aspects in a divorce case is marital property division.  This can be one of the most combative parts of the divorce case as each side generally feels they are entitled to more. The important point to note is that this does not affect non-marital property; thus, all property acquired by either spouse before the marriage is considered non-marital property.  Generally all marital property is “equitably” divided 50-50 except in special circumstances.  Having a divorce lawyer representing you in a divorce court during these disputes will ensure that no unaccounted marital property is un-equitably granted to both side and ensure that all assets and property are divided according to the law.
