is an equitable division state, which means that property is to be divided
fairly, but fairly does not always mean equally. However, it takes a great
deal to shift the balance away from a 50-50 division of property.
Perhaps your spouse lost a substantial amount of marital assets gambling.
Or maybe your spouse carried on a lengthy extramarital affair, spending
money on the other person. Maybe you stayed at home for many years, leaving
your career to raise the children, and you are worried that you will not
make enough money when you return to the workforce. What factors do the
courts consider in dividing assets under current family law rules? Tomasino

your case. Always discuss your situation with a divorce lawyer before
you take any major steps. We can advise you of all your options and whether
you can benefit from
