In a divorce, couples need to determine how to divide their marital property. Maryland is an equitable division state, which means that there is no requirement that property be divided equally.
Marital property includes homes, financial accounts, vehicles, personal property, and businesses. Marital property also includes debts tied to the acquisition of marital assets. It is important to conduct a thorough investigation into what assets exist in order to determine its value and the best way to distribute the asset. If a business is involved, we can employ an expert witness to value the business and determine the income of the business owner.
