With the exception of gifts and inheritances, all assets acquired by couples during the marriage belong to both spouses and must be divided equitably. This includes:
- Real estates such as the house, vacation properties and land investments
- Motor vehicles no matter how old they are
- Retirement accounts such as IRAs, 401(k)s, 403(b)s and pension plans
- Financial investments such as stocks and bonds
- A business
Even assets owned by one party prior to the marriage may include a marital property contribution based on what happened during the marriage.
Debts accumulated during the marriage also are the responsibility of the couple and must be divided. Such debts may be from student loans, mortgages, car loans, credit cards and medical bills.
