Property Division In New York Divorces

New York is an equitable distribution state. This means that the division of your assets will not automatically be a 50-50 split. Instead, your assets will be split equitably — in a way that is fair for both parties. The court considers the value of the parties' assets and their individual financial situations after the marriage is dissolved.

Assets the court will consider during your property division process include:

  • Pension and retirement plans
  • Business interests
  • Stock options
  • Limited partnerships
  • Closely-held corporations
  • Professional licenses
  • Real estate
  • Trusts
  • Investment portfolios
  • Other valuable possessions (art collections, antiques, etc.)

Whether you were the breadwinner or not, you deserve to have an equitable division of marital property in a divorce. We will make sure to enlist reputable experts to perform asset valuations in order to get the whole picture.
