In an action for divorce or legal separation, the parties’ assets need to be valued and divided in a manner that is fair and considers the needs of both parties. The net worth of the parties (assets minus liabilities) is presumed to be equally divided between the parties by the court. However, other factors may alter an equal division. There are general guidelines provided by the courts that will permit your attorney to advise you of a probable result in your case.
