What happens to your marital property in Maryland?

One of the main concerns of many couples getting a divorce is money. Worry can fuel this concern; nobody wants to receive the short end of the stick and watch their ex live quite comfortably. You might worry about who keeps the house and how to divide your joint bank account.

Maryland addresses these concerns with an equitable divorce law. While some states decide to split the value of all marital property down the middle, Maryland courts must divide assets according to what will be fair. In many cases, this could be an even split for each spouse, but the courts can also award more assets to one spouse than the other when it would be fair.
