If you and your spouse are not able to reach a compromise in a non-contested divorce, the court has the right to divide your property, taking into consideration several factors including the amount each spouse has contributed to the marriage as well as the plans of each spouse moving forward.
Many individuals assume that if they have contributed more to the marriage, they automatically receive more of the assets, but this is not always the case. In the event that an asset is difficult to divide, such as an interest in a business, the court may order that cash exchanges hands in order to make up for the inequity.
