Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state. This means that, in Pennsylvania, what your share of assets in your marital estate will be after a divorce depends on 11 different statutory factors.
Your share will not necessarily be 50%. In fact, in Pennsylvania, it is reversible error for a trial court to assume, or presume, a 50%/50% split of assets in a divorce. How you plan your situation and present your case will, in large measure, determine the amount of the estate you will retain. Our firm is dedicated to positioning you for the best presentation of your economic arguments and obtaining the division of assets in the most favorable manner possible.
