Division Of Marital Property

Helping You Divide Marital Property in Maryland

Each marriage is different and results in different amounts and kinds of assets being acquired. The Law Office of Corrie A. Boulay will expertly guide you in identifying which particular assets are eligible to be divided, and in securing the full amount of property that you are entitled to.

Equitable Division Does Not Always Mean 50-50

Maryland law requires that Judges divide marital property on an equitable basis. This means marital property is divided by weighing various factors and circumstances that existed during the marriage, and/or separation, to arrive at a fair decision. Factors include: what each party contributed to the marriage (both monetary and non-monetary contributions), whether and how either party contributed toward the downfall of the marriage, each party’s financial resources, the length of the marriage, and the age, health and condition of each party.

The Court also looks at how and when property was acquired to determine if it is “marital property” and eligible to be divided.

Marital property division can be stressful and complex. The current housing market can make it difficult to value and divide real estate. If you or your spouse own a business, it will need to accurately valued. Retirement benefits such as 401(k) accounts and pension plans will need to be divided using Qualified Domestic Relations Order(s) (QDRO). Our attorneys will go over your entire property and financial picture to ensure that nothing is left on the table.

Alicia Smollon was my lawyer for a divorce proceeding involving me and my husband of 26 years. She provided me with exceptional advice and proposed timely actions. I was very pleased with her service. So pleased, in fact, that when a subsequent dispute arose regarding some specific terms of my divorce settlement, I asked Alicia once again to help achieve a resolution. She was (1) very helpful, (2) very understanding, and (3) won every argument in my favor. I cannot say enough about her, both as a confidant and a lawyer. Should i need a lawyer in the future, Alicia will be my first choice.

I worked with Alicia and she was always quick, attentive and clear in her communication. I have also consulted with her on going and she continues to provide the same service for additional family matters.
