How Does Marital Property Division Work in Virginia?
Virginia is an equitable distribution state. Marital property and debt are divided according to what is equitable, not necessarily what is equal. The courts look at a number of factors, including the length of marriage and earning capacity of each party, before making a decision. It is important to understand the following distinction:
- Marital property: This is property that has been acquired by both parties during the length of the marriage. It is considered shared property and it is eligible to be divided.
- Separate property: This is property acquired by one party before the marriage began, or during the marriage but in the form of a gift, such as an inheritance, and maintained as separate property.
