For starters, the state of New Jersey considers the assets and debts a married couple acquires either individually or together during marriage to be “marital property,” regardless of how the property is titled. In New Jersey, Equitable Distribution does not necessarily translate into a 50/50 split of all marital property in a divorce. This is very important to note.

What influences a court’s decision on property distribution? A myriad of factors that include, but are not restricted to:

  • Any written prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements

  • The length of the marriage

  • Each spouse’s health and age

  • Any income property either spouse brought into the marriage

  • Each spouse’s overall economic circumstances

  • Tax consequences

  • Each spouse’s debts, liabilities

  • Any contributions either spouse made to the education or earning power of the other spouse

  • The extent to which either spouse may have delayed pursuing career goals during the marriage

  • Any other relevant factors

Note that Judges have leeway in deciding how much weight to give to any single factor. They typically place more weight on the length of the marriage and marriage lifestyle.
