Many factors are weighed when the Maryland courts consider the division of property and assets in a divorce. Because Maryland is an equitable property state, the division of debts and assets needs to be fair, but not necessarily equal. When the division is complete, one party may receive more than the other. When high net worth individuals decide to divorce, the process of dividing property becomes even more complex.
