In Kansas and Missouri courts will attempt to divide the marital property in a “fair and equitable manner” attendant to a divorce. Marital Property refers to everything that the spouses acquired together during the course of the marriage, with a few exceptions to that general rule.
The most common marital properties that are involved in divorce cases include:
- Real estate – the marital home
- Furniture and household fixtures
- Cars and other vehicles
- Financial Accounts, such as checking accounts, savings accounts, brokerage accounts, etc.
- Life insurance policies, IRAs, 401Ks and pension plans
- Businesses owned by either spouse
