You Won’t Lose Everything
Many people worry that they will “lose everything” in a divorce. The truth is that it is the judge’s task to ensure that neither party leaves the marriage destitute. The term for what the judge will try to do is “equitable distribution.” That is, the judge will determine what he/she believes is equitable, or fair, under the circumstances. The overwhelming number of judges before whom I have appeared have been very thoughtful and deliberate in reaching their decisions. The key then is to present your case in an effective manner.
So, how do you prepare to not lose everything? Well, for starters, be realistic. If a property or a bank account was acquired during the marriage, then it will likely be deemed marital and be evenly divided. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that the account is all yours because it was kept in your name alone. It doesn’t matter if it was “your” money which was used to acquire the property in question.
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as “my” money if that money was obtained during the marriage. Whatever you acquired after you said “I do,” will likely belong to the marriage, even if all the money came from “your” hard work.
