Division of Marital and Non Marital Assets

Whether you are dividing a modest retirement account or determining a marital interest in a multi-million dollar corporation, the division of marital property can be one of the most contentious issues in a dissolution case.   Division of marital property can range from the division of household furniture to the division of real estate, retirement accounts, vehicles, securities and business interests.    Missouri courts are granted significant discretion in determining how marital assets and liabilities are divided.  Additionally, judges are to equitably divide marital property and debt, however, “equitable” does not necessarily mean equal.  The court can consider a variety of factors and/or conditions in determining an equitable distribution.    

A determination also needs to be made as to whether an item or interest is marital or non-marital.  The determination of marital vs. non-marital property can be very complicated and require an accounting of how funds were used during the marriage.
