Equitable Distribution Affidavit


Dear hard2battle:

Greetings. An Equitable Distribution Affidavit is a court document that details all your property to the judge, let’s the judge know what claims you have about the property, how much each item is worth, and how you want the property divided. It is what I would call the guide book for the judge to rule on your equitable distribution claim. No, this document is not for all marital property being sold without your consent - except to let the judge know when this happened with any specific piece of property.

You have thirty days from the date of filing your complaint to file your version and your spouse has thirty days from the date of you filing yours to file their equitable distribution affidavit. Thank you.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


My attorney just briefly told me about this. What can you tell me about it? What is its purpose? He said something about a response from my spouse being required within 10 days of being issued or something like that. Is this just regarding all marital property being sold without my consent or all marital property in general?
