Rochester Divorce Attorney Explains Marital Property

As a dedicated Rochester Divorce Attorney, I am frequently asked about marital property.

  • Marital property is defined as any property acquired during the marriage.
  • It is distinguished from property acquired prior to marriage and referred to as separate property.
  • Any property the parties acquire during the marriage – such as a home, vehicles, or money that either puts into a retirement account.
  • Debts incurred during the marriage are also considered marital property.
  • During the divorce process, decisions are made regarding division of those items.
