New York Asset Division Attorney

Help with the Division of Assets and Property

When approaching the possibility of uncontested divorce, there are a few issues that both you and your spouse have to come to an agreement upon in order for your divorce to be considered uncontested. One of those factors is division of assets. In New York, property that you and your spouse accumulated during the time that you were married will likely be subject to a process called equitable distribution.

As opposed to a community property situation, all property will not be split 50/50. This means that there is a standard of judgment that must determine which spouse is entitled to which property. This can get difficult, especially if the said property was equally used by both spouses. Many factors must be considered in order to determine which spouse has a right to what property. Things to be considered may include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Existence of a prenuptial agreement
  • Health and current occupation of both parties
  • Age and vocational abilities of both parties
  • Income

Consideration of these factors will make it easier to conclude which spouse is entitled to what property. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse are likely in agreement about asset division but you want to be careful that you are not giving up something that is rightfully yours. "Assets" don't have to be physical, but rather can include such things as home equity, 401Ks and investments.
