Equitable Distribution in Divorce Laws

The property that spouses acquire after their marriage is termed as marital property. There are long sections in divorce laws that deal exclusively with the equitable distribution of these properties. The idea is to make the distribution fairly where none of the parties should feel at loss. The couple is generally asked to sit together and talk about it in order to reach a mutually agreeable resolution. In case no such agreement is possible, the court gives its verdict on this issue.
