As an equitable distribution state, Pennsylvania determines property division based on what is fair, not necessarily what is equal. Under the state’s law, a judge could treat each piece of marital property separately, dividing each one based on differing percentages. You should be aware that the assets that are subject to division will include just about anything that was acquired after the marriage, such as a house, cars, life insurance policies, home furnishings and bank accounts.
