The court must divide the property in a way that is equitable, just, and reasonable.
This does not necessarily mean that the property is divided equally. The court must look at many factors in making a property distribution.
Some of the things that are considered to name a few are:
- length of marriage
- age of the parties
- health of the parties
- occupation of the parties
- amount and sources of each party’s income
- assets and debts
- each party’s contribution to the family whether as a homemaker or otherwise, etc.
