Division of Property
Maryland is an equitable distribution state and as such, the courts will disregard how property is titled and will characterize property as either marital or non-marital. Generally, each partner will keep his/her non-marital property and equitably divide the marital property. Determinations as to whether property is marital or non-marital can be hotly contested and highly complex. Because of this, it is imperative that you seek legal advice early in the process.
