Equitable distribution is the keyword when it comes to property division. It's important to keep in mind, however, that "equitable" does not mean "half." The court decides how the property will be distributed with each party receiving zero to 100%. How the court decides is based on factors such as the length of marriage, what each partner brought to the marriage, how much each individual can or does earn, parenting responsibilities, whether a spouse will need training to acquire skills to support him or herself, tax consequences and each person's debt. Without a prenuptual agreement, all marital property is subject to division, regardless of who purchased it.
