Equitable Distribution in New York

New York is an equitable distribution state and that means that assets are divided equitably between the two parties. The focus here is to try to divide everything in a fair manner, and that doesn’t necessarily mean that the division will be equal between the two individuals. Marital property is the only thing divided, and separate property, such as property gained prior to the marriage, will not be included.

A judge will look at a number of factors when determining property division, such as:

  • The length of the marriage
  • If spousal maintenance is being awarded to either spouse
  • The income of each spouse
  • Age and health of both individuals
  • Financial loss as a result of the divorce, such as health insurance or pensions
  • Future earning ability of each side
  • The value of all marital assets
  • If the parent awarded custody needs the home to live in
