Equitable distribution applies only to marital property, meaning the asset or debt was acquired during the marriage. Title is irrelevant -what’s yours is theirs and what’s theirs is yours. This does not necessarily mean, for example, that a car in your name will not remain with you, but it does mean the value of that car must be considered in an equitable distribution determination. Although non-marital property is not subject to equitable distribution, any increase in value is. For example, if you acquired a $100,000 house prior to the marriage and the home is now worth $150,000, $50,000 may be subject to equitable distribution. It is also possible that co-mingling non-marital property will convert it to marital property. In the example above, if you added your spouses name to the deed or used the home as your marital residence, it is possible the full $150,000 would be subject to equitable distribution.
