Equitable Distribution in Maryland Divorce

Contrary to popular belief, equitable distribution does not always result in an “equal” division of the marital estate. Maryland courts consider a variety of factors in awarding an “equitable share” of the marital estate to each party. We can explain the factors the court may consider in dividing your estate, including:

  • Each spouse’s financial needs
  • Contributions to the estate
  • Actions in causing the breakup
  • Debt division
  • Retirement assets
  • Divorce tax issues

For more than 20 years, family law firm Fait & DiLima, LLP has represented divorcing couples facing property division issues. Whether you have a modest marital estate or tens of millions of dollars in assets, our attorneys can provide prudent advice to help you reach the best possible resolution to your particular case.
