Division of Assets

As an equitable distribution state, Maryland does not necessarily divide marital property evenly to both spouses. Instead, assets are divided fairly (as determined by the court) between both parties. Shared assets include any property and items that were purchased during the length of the marriage. Gifts and inheritances are not usually considered marital assets.

Some examples of marital assets include:

  • Vehicles, such as cars and boats
  • Real property, including the primary residence, vacation homes, etc.
  • Furniture, clothing, and other accumulated belongings
  • Bank accounts and cash
  • Retirement and pension plans

When Is a Monetary Award Given?

A court can order a monetary award to be given from one spouse to another to ensure that assets are fairly distributed. This typically occurs when one spouse is given an item (or a property) of high value that cannot be divided, such as a home or car. When this happens, the spouse receiving the high-value item is required to pay money to the other spouse. A monetary award is taken into consideration when spousal support agreements are being drafted, influencing the terms of each agreement.
