Marital Asset Division in Maryland
When a couple has decided to divorce, they may sit together with an experienced mediator and decide on how they want to divide their joined marital assets. This is a common way of going about it, while a mediator they both trust ensures they make informed decisions and tries to protect both parties’ interests by advising on how to divide the asset according to the marital property law in Maryland. The mediator may be a lawyer but does not have to be.
However, such amicable mediation does not always happen, and you must know how the court would approach the matter once you file a lawsuit against your spouse’s unfair estimates or dissipation of your marital property.
The courts in Maryland follow the statute for equitable distribution, which means a judge will rule asset division as they see fit and fair without necessarily awarding equal compensation to both parties.
This also means you will need sound legal representation to ensure your ex-spouse does not get away with any assets that belong to you.
