Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state when it comes to the division of marital assets. As opposed to a “community property” state, equitable distribution does not presume an equal division of marital property, and the goal of economic justice will frequently dictate otherwise.
Equitable distribution is a three-step process, requiring the identification of the components of the marital estate, the valuation of these assets, and the application of relevant economic factors to determine the actual distribution between the parties.
