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
