How are assets and liabilities split in a divorce?

FORT MYERS DIVORCE ATTORNEYS | MARITAL ASSETS

Assets and liabilities are equitably split during a divorce. Now assets, there are some that are marital and there are some that are non-marital. We will have to distinguish what are marital, which are assets that were acquired during the marriage and for the marriage, and what are non-marital. The non-marital assets, the party who that asset belongs to gets to keep that asset. For marital assets, we have to equitably distribute those assets as well. For liabilities, which are debts and bills that you acquired during the marriage, those, too, have to be equitably distributed.
