Getting a divorce can be difficult. There can be a lot of uncertainty involved. You shouldn’t need to worry about losing what's rightfully yours when you split up. Sometimes, splitting marital property 50/50 is not fair. In cases where one spouse has non-marital property and the other does not have any or as much, marital property will be split to even out the finances of the couple. Non-marital property is anything either spouse had before the marriage or anything they received for just them during the marriage, like an inheritance from a will. Different factors come into play when it is time to split marital property, and it is important to find a divorce lawyer to help.
