Dividing your property may not be easy, depending on how long you've been married and how intertwined your finances are. Maryland is an equitable distribution state, so you and your spouse are not guaranteed to receive 50% of your marital property. Instead, you will need to negotiate to determine a fair split of your property. If you have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it will take precedent as long as it is valid.
Maryland is an equitable distribution state, which means that you and your spouse will need to divide your property equitably upon divorce. Since there is no law to require you to split your property equally, there is no guarantee that you will receive half of the marital assets. To protect your interests, it's a good idea to inform your attorney about your divorce and to begin working on negotiations right away.
If the property distribution phase of your divorce is coming up, you may have concerns as to whether your spouse has appropriately listed all the marital assets.
