In any marriage, there is property owned by each individual spouse and property owned by the couple, jointly. One of the key responsibilities in a property division case is to differentiate between the two different types of property or possessions, and divide them accordingly. However, ownership is not the only factor involved in determining a fair division. If, for example, one spouse did not earn an income but took care of the couple’s children every day, he or she typically still has a right to the shared assets.
