Equitable Distribution
of Property

New Jersey Attorney Committed to Equitable Solutions

Paramus Divorce Lawyer Seeks To Minimize Conflict

Divorce is never easy; it can fill you with emotions of anxiety and stress. Adding to those emotions is the daunting task of division of property. We understand these emotions and the complex process of equitable distribution.
In equitable distribution states such as New Jersey, assets acquired and liabilities incurred during the marriage (subject to various exemptions), are considered marital property. Even if an asset was kept in your spouse’s name, it is still treated as marital property if acquired during the marriage. However, this does not always mean property division resulting in an even 50/50 distribution.
Kornitzer Family Law has the necessary knowledge and familiarity with New Jersey’s property division laws to ensure that you will obtain the fairest settlement.

Emphasizing Experience and Meticulous Preparation

Before the actual distribution of the property, your lawyer will need to determine what property will be distributed and its value. Equitable distribution states classify property as either “marital property,” assets acquired during the marriage and available for distribution, or “separate property,” assets acquired prior the marriage and exempt from division.
Kornitzer Family Law has the necessary familiarity with New Jersey’s equitable distribution laws to distinguish property as either marital property or separate property. We also have the skill to trace the commingling of separate assets with marital assets, prevent unfair distribution and ensure that no assets or debts are overlooked.

Marital property may include anything you have that could be considered an asset, such as:

  • Stocks and bonds
  • Automobiles
  • Bank accounts
  • Investment accounts
  • Marital home and vacation homes
  • Home furnishings
  • Timeshares
  • Retirement funds
  • Bitcoin / Digital Currency
  • Pensions and annuities
  • Businesses
  • Pets


We strive to convert an otherwise stressful and contentious matter into a positive resolution. The experience of Kornitzer Family Law allows us to handle negotiation and mediation when appropriate, affording you greater control over the outcome. But even if you and your ex-spouse are unable to initially agree on an equitable marital division, our law firm acts as fair and impartial mediators to help you both move forward after the divorce.
