Property Division Basics
Under Indiana law, the presumption is that, barring the existence of a valid prenuptial agreement, all marital property will be divided 50/50, or equally between the parties. While a property settlement may be reached on those terms, it may also be appropriate to award more to one party in certain circumstances. An attorney at Ruppert & Schaefer, P.C., can discuss with you the likelihood of an unequal property distribution for your case.
