Division of Property and Assets

South Jersey Divorce Attorney Christopher Musulin — Musulin Law Firm, LLC

After alimony and child custody, distribution of property is sometimes the most contentious issue to be resolved in a divorce matter. The rule of law in New Jersey for division of assets and liabilities in divorce is called equitable distribution. There is no presumption that "equitable" means that your assets/debts will be divided in half. The proper division is based on the particular facts and circumstances of your legal matter and the application of the equitable distribution laws of the state of New Jersey.

Property includes all assets real and personal acquired during the marriage, including:

  • The marital residence and everything in it
  • Pensions
  • 401(k) savings
  • Regular savings accounts
  • Brokerage accounts
  • Antiques, coins, collectibles
  • Businesses
  • Every other kind of property, including intellectual property

With regard to debts, these will also be divided according to what is "equitable" in your particular case. It is extremely important for your family law attorney to be knowledgeable in all of the case law and statutes concerning equitable distribution. If your familial estate involves substantial assets or debt, the legal team at Musulin Law Firm is very adept with analyzing and evaluating expert reports and using forensic accountants and appraisers to determine property and business values. In addition, under the helm of Attorney Christopher Musulin, there is consistent study of new legislation, case law and statutes. Mr. Musulin is routinely involved with the presentation of continuing legal education seminars and expects the attorneys of Musulin Law Firm to follow suit.
