What is the Difference Between Non-Marital and Marital Assets?

One of the primary steps that must be taken during the divorce process is taking note of all non-marital and marital assets. This basically means that spouses need to determine which assets they have a right to individually and which they share.

In addition to assets, liabilities also need to be considered in the same fashion: those debts or liabilities that were incurred individually and those which are shared.

Determining non-martial and marital assets and liabilities can be tricky. Non-marital assets are categorized as any assets or liabilities there were obtained prior to the marriage.

Basically, in order to make this portion of the process easier, spouses can document any assets or liabilities that were incurred by each party, either on an individual or joint basis, before or during the marriage.

This can later be drawn up in a valid agreement that will be put in motion through the legal divorce process by a divorce attorney.
