What Is Considered a Marital Asset or Debt?

A marital asset includes any type of financial asset or real estate acquired during the marriage. Any type of debt acquired during the course of the marriage is considered to be part of the marital property as well. Martial assets can include real property (real estate), investment accounts, retirement accounts, and any other such property which has significant value.

Nonmarital assets may also have a portion which can be considered to be marital in some cases. Examples of these types of assets can be inheritances, certain gifts, and assets acquired before the marriage. In these instances, it is imperative that you work with a lawyer who understands how to conduct a comprehensive analysis of your financial situation. You can speak with one of our knowledgeable attorneys to determine if a potential marital portion of such an asset exists.

It is imperative you work with a lawyer who is knowledgeable of the law and understands how to conduct a comprehensive analysis of your financial situation.
