Des Moines Property Division Lawyers

Equitable Distribution

When spouses divorce, the state of Iowa requires an “equitable distribution” of their marital property. Equitable distribution means a fair – but not necessarily equal – division of property. Iowa courts approach property division from a gender-neutral position and consider numerous statutory factors set out in the Iowa Code when determining how to make an equitable distribution.

Property that one spouse owned prior to the marriage, as well as property that one spouse inherited or received via gift during the marriage, is generally considered separate property and not subject to division during divorce.
