Marital property is property that was accumulated during the marriage due to the efforts of either or both parties. Marital property is required to be divided equitably between the parties. Equitable division does not necessarily mean equal however, barring certain circumstances, there is typically a presumption of a congruent split (50/50). Separate property is property that was accumulated prior to the marriage or was inherited or gifted to an individual alone. Depending on how separate property was treated during the marriage, it may be deemed separate (not subject to division) or marital (subject to division).
