ABSTRACT
The enactment of equitable distribution laws governing the division of marital property has made divorce a daunting task. It no longer is as simple as "he gets the pension, she gets the house." Even the definition of marital property has changed. Trial courts, after considering a variety of factors, have wide discretion in making final awards. Financial planners can play a key role in helping their clients through the process. This article provides planners with a look at the process of equitable distribution and the factors that may be taken into account when determining how property will be distributed.
