Prior Lake, MN Division of Property Attorney Serving the South Metro
It’s time for one of the trickiest questions about divorce: Who gets the stuff? It seems like there should be a clear-cut answer, but unfortunately, that’s not the case.
By law, there’s supposed to be a 50/50 split of marital property and debt. But for many people who go through a divorce, things usually pan out a little bit (or a lot) differently.
The Hard Truth About the Division of Marital Property
The “equitable” division of marital property means something different to each particular judge.
Here are some tough points to consider:
- Inheritances are not marital property
- Student loans are not marital debt
- The property valuation is based on the date of the Initial Case Management Conference (ICMC) – regardless of fluctuating property values
- Spousal support is a gray area
