Understanding Marital Assets and Debts:

Marital Assets:

Marital Debts:

  • Marital debts encompass any debts incurred during the marriage, including mortgages, loans, credit card debt, and tax liabilities.
  • Like marital assets, marital debts are subject to equitable distribution, and determining responsibility for these debts requires careful examination of each party’s financial circumstances.

Factors Influencing Division:

Equitable Distribution:

  • Connecticut follows the principle of equitable distribution, which means that marital assets and debts are divided fairly but not necessarily equally.
  • Courts consider various factors when determining the equitable distribution of assets and debts, including the length of the marriage, each spouse’s financial contributions, earning capacity, and future needs.

Asset Valuation:

  • Accurately valuing marital assets is crucial for fair distribution, especially for complex assets such as businesses, investments, and retirement accounts.
  • Our team works with financial experts to ensure that assets are valued properly, taking into account factors such as market fluctuations, tax implications, and future earning potential.

Debt Allocation:

  • Allocating marital debts requires careful consideration of each party’s ability to pay and the circumstances surrounding the debt’s incurrence.
  • We advocate for our client’s interests, seeking to minimize their liability for marital debts while ensuring a fair and reasonable distribution based on their financial situation.
