Marital debt is another element involved in property settlement and equitable distribution. Debts from a marriage include the obvious things like mortgages and car loans, medical expenses and credit card balances. Marital debt can encompass a broad range of other possibilities as well. As with assets, debts pre-existing your marriage are not generally considered marital debt, and some debts incurred during the marriage are not always a part of debt distribution. Examples of pre-existing debt can include student loans, some types of credit card debt and other loans. It is important to evaluate the way your marital debt was acquired, and to analyze how those resources were used to make real determinations about distribution. Your attorney will help you decipher your marital debt and ensure it is properly being considered or omitted within the context of equitable distribution of marital debt.
