Divorce does not only involve the legal dissolution of a marriage, it also results in the division of assets and debts obtained during and throughout the marriage. In Pennsylvania, the term "equitable distribution" refers to the process of dividing marital assets and debts. If spouses cannot agree on how to divide their property, they may end up in court, where a judge will decide for them. The property is not always divided evenly. The court will view many factors to arrive at an “equitable” distribution of marital assets and debts. It is imperative that one obtain an attorney that understands the law and makes certain that the distribution of marital assets and debts is equitable and just.
