How Are Assets Divided?

In New York, division of these assets is determined by a judge. This may or may not mean things are divided equally between the couple. The judge will use several factors to make a determination, including:

  • What assets did each person own at the start of the marriage?
  • What assets does each person have at the time of the divorce?
  • What assets were purchased jointly during the marriage?
  • Has one spouse been awarded spousal support?
  • What are the housing needs of each person?
  • How old is each spouse and what level of health are they in?
