How are assets divided in a Pennsylvania divorce?
Pennsylvania is an Equitable Distribution state. As the name implies, this means that the court will consider what is fair, not necessarily what is equal, when dividing marital property. The court's analysis is based on a number of factors, including the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of the parties, who has custody of minor children, the age and health of the parties, and so on. The specifics of your case will determine how your property is divided. I would be happy to sit down with you to talk about the controlling factors and how they will apply to your case.
