Equitable Distribution Under New Jersey Law

"Most people in New Jersey know more about the California standard of "community property" rather than the New Jersey standard of "equitable distribution," which simply means … fair division." — Frank LaRocca

When dividing marital property, New Jersey courts use the system of "equitable distribution." Equitable distribution is designed to distribute all marital property in a fair and equitable manner. That does not necessarily mean an equal 50-50 split. The courts will consider 16 different factors, including the duration of the marriage, the standard of living established during the marriage and your economic situation to determine how marital assets and debts will be distributed.

LaRocca Hornik Rosen Greenberg & Patti LLC has the resources and technology to determine the accurate value for each of your assets and those of your spouse. That accurate information helps to make the entire process of property division more efficient and less contentious.

Using Negotiation, Mediation And Litigation

Equitable distribution laws only apply if your marital property is divided by the court. At the Law Offices of John A. Patti, we can assist you in negotiating and/or mediating property division issues without court intervention. This assures property is divided in an agreeable fashion, rather than leaving it up to a judge.

Barring that, we will aggressively represent your interests at trial. Our lawyers have litigated hundreds of property division cases and have established an impressive record of success in the courtroom.
