Experienced Asset Division Lawyers in New Jersey

The first step in establishing the equitable distribution of property is determining which assets are marital property and which are separate property. Marital property includes any assets that were acquired by either spouse or jointly during the marriage as well as a previously owned property that was improved during the marriage. Separate property includes anything owned prior to the marriage, any gifts or inheritance received during the marriage, and any property acquired after filing for divorce.

Factors to Consider

Our New Jersey lawyers work closely with our clients to determine which property should be characterized as marital property and which is separate property. Then, we work to establish the value of the joint property. Often, we work with accountants, forensic accountants, real estate evaluators and other professionals to determine the true value of the marital estate. The court then applies a number of factors to determine the equitable distribution of the property. Some of those factors include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • The age, physical health and emotional health of each person
  • The income and earning capacity of each party
  • The standard of living during the marriage
  • The present value of the property
  • The debts and liabilities of each party
  • Any tax consequences associated with the distribution the marital property

We recognize that property distribution issues are as complex as they are emotionally charged. We strive to provide our clients with reasoned advice related to the distribution of marital assets. Our attorneys examine our client’s finances, the equity in their home and the value of their cars. Then we work to ensure our clients receive the fairest possible distribution of the marital assets, whether through negotiation or at trial.

Client Reviews
Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
Ron is an extremely trustworthy lawyer. Listen to what he says and have faith in him, you will be as impressed as I am! I couldn't have dreamed of a better outcome in my case. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to represent me, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing lawyer!!
His staff is amazing as well!!
