ASSET DIVISION IN RI DIVORCE
DIVIDING THE MARITAL ESTATE
At the termination of a marriage the parties must divide the marital property acquired during that marriage. Often this process is simple. On other occasions, however, asset division in divorce is complex. And to add to it all, you should look at gifts, inheritances and other normally non-marital assets too.
Rhode Island courts consider most property acquired after the marriage to be marital property. On the other hand, property obtained prior to a marriage or by inheritance or gift is generally considered separate property. These concepts, while seemingly simple, can often be subject to interpretation and require an RI divorce attorney who is familiar with the legal intricacies to ensure your property is fairly divided.
