Equitable Distribution (Division of Assets / Debts)

Aside from child custody and visitation issues, how money, property and debts will be split is the most common source of dispute in divorce. New Jersey law is complex in this regard, beginning with the fact that it stipulates that all marital assets are subject to equitable distribution — which means fair, but not necessarily equal, division between the parties.
