Divorce: Dividing the Assets

The House

For the most part, the two pieces of property which would be considered the "big-ticket" items would be the martial place of residence and the individual and joint retirement plans of the spouses. Typically speaking, in a case where there are children involved, the house will almost always be awarded to that spouse who will ultimately receive primary custody of the children. This rule will almost always hold true, even when it results in a slight imbalance with respect to the equitable distribution factor.
