Property & Asset Division in a Divorce

In Pennsylvania, there are two types of property to consider when it comes to a divorce:

  • Separate property, which may include:
    • Property acquired or purchased prior to the marriage;
    • Property acquired by gift or inheritance before or during the marriage; and
    • Profits from a business established prior to the marriage, if the business did not benefit from the other spouse’s involvement or contributions.
  • Marital property, which may include:
    • Property acquired or purchased during the marriage; and
    • Proceeds from a business established during the marriage, or before the marriage if both spouses contributed to the business’s success.

Only marital property is subject to division in a Pennsylvania divorce.
