Separating Marital and Non-Marital Property

Marital property and marital debts are those that should be split between the parties. Non-marital property is anything separate that will not be included in the property division process.
Your marital assets may include:
- The family home, vacation property, and any other financial interests that were acquired during your marriage
- Cars, boats, vehicles, and recreational vehicles
- Valuables, including jewelry, art, and other collectibles
- Retirement, pension funds, and IRAs
- Stocks and stock options
- Passive appreciation of the value of real estate
Your marital liabilities may include:
- Mortgages and home equity lines of credit
- Credit card balances
- Car loans
- Personal loans
- Retirement loans
