Dividing assets and debts during divorce.

In Indiana, all of the marital assets and debts are generally equally divided in the event of divorce.  However, the court hearing your case has discretion to deviate from the presumed 50/50 split if any of the following are true:  (1) one spouse dissipated/wasted assets during the marriage; (2) one spouse has significantly more earning potential or education than the other; (3) one spouse brought significantly more property into the marriage than the other; or (4) one spouse has assets which were inherited or gifted specifically to him or her.  Having one of the foregoing factors does not give a spouse the "right" to more than half of the marital assets, but it does provide the opportunity to argue for a deviation from that presumption.
