Divorce operates differently from state-to-state. When you split, property is split in the marriage: as well as savings, wages, vehicles, and other pieces that you both had ownership of in your marriage. The divorce can even include some business assets as well, regardless of who purchased what, when where and why.  In almost all cases, purchased property during the marriage is joint property.

However the law doesn’t require property split equally in the event of a divorce. The court’s required by law to divide the property in the right manner depending on the circumstances. The court decides whether you are required or able to sell the property, and deciding who gets vehicles among the two of you.

Debt is divided as well. The court makes the division of debt different between circumstances. They can order each individual party pay certain aspects of the debt.
