What Gets Divided In Divorce?
Nearly all property acquired during the course of a marriage is considered marital property and subject to division upon divorce. Under Delaware’s equitable distribution laws, marital property is to be divided in a fair and equitable manner. This does not necessarily amount to a 50-50 split.
Items subject to division include:
- The family home
- Other real estate
- Bank accounts
- 401(k)s, IRAs, pensions and other retirement accounts
- Furniture, jewelry and other personal property
