                                      Equitable Distribution in New Jersey


                                      Equitable distribution is the fair and judicially-acceptable division of assets and liabilities acquired during the marriage. This division of resources can relate to things such as your home(s), vehicles, pension plans, tax-deferred plans, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, mortgages, credit card debt, digital assets like cryptocurrencies, businesses, or even inheritances. Other states might refer to this as "community property," but in NJ, it's "equitable distribution." 

                                      It does not always mean equal, although it may in some cases. Many men and many women maintain similar fears in a marital arrangement in the event the relationship goes south for one reason or another. Both parties generally express a great deal of concern that their partner will walk away with the lion's share of marital assets, leaving you holding the bag and struggling to financially recover.

                                      Whether you're the proverbial "breadwinner" of the family, or if you've alternatively been the homemaker, live-in chef, and the parent tasked with raising your children, both you and your spouse want to receive a "fair share" of property to ensure a safe, secure future.

                                      The individual earning the majority of income may feel entitled to retain it, while the parent primarily raising the child might feel that he or she bears the greatest responsibility and should thus be compensated by the spouse accordingly. 

                                      Alternatively, both spouses may work, but whether you two earn similar wages or vastly different sums of money, or if one of you entered the marriage with a substantially greater net worth, you're sure to have your concerns on the allocation of resources.

                                      And while some might feel that dividing assets is reserved exclusively for the rich and the upper-middle class, ordinary everyday Americans often inevitably own at least some types of property - property that may need to be split upon divorce and dissolution of the marriage.
