When it comes to splitting property between a couple, it doesn’t typically divide right down the middle. To determine how much each party should receive, the court looks over every contributions given by both parties. Contributions are not only monetary based but also assesses whether either party had their share of housekeeping, parental responsibilities, or property maintenance.
