How Is Property Divided in New Jersey?
In New Jersey, the property division process is highly fact-dependent and varies widely from case to case. This means that there is no specific formula or guideline that a judge will follow when dividing property. The judge has a great deal of discretion in deciding how to divide property in your case.
How Do I Value Property in a Divorce?
How you value your property depends on the type of property you have and the nature of your marriage. For example, if you and your spouse both contributed equally to the purchase of a house, the judge will likely value the house equally as well. However, if you and your spouse both contributed equally to the purchase of a house, but your spouse made significantly more income than you, the judge will value the house based on your spouse's income and earning potential.
