People in Maryland know that there are a lot of different financial factors that go into a divorce settlement. Property division is a complicated divorce legal issue, as couples have to be concerned about what they will walk away with after their marital separation is complete. In the big picture, marital property includes essentially everything that was acquired during the course of the marriage, including real estate, cars, property, savings and investment accounts and even student loan debt.
Student loans are becoming the norm for most college graduates these days, as education and the prospect of a better career come at no small cost. In 2012, the average college graduate owed about $30,000 in student loan debt, and paying this debt off can be a daunting task. For that reason, more and more couples divorce while still owing debt on their student loans.
