Delaware follows the principle of equitable distribution, which means that marital property is divided fairly but not necessarily equally. Factors such as the length of the marriage, contributions, and economic circumstances are considered.

Is Delaware a separate property state?

Yes, Delaware is considered a separate property state. This means that property acquired before the marriage or through certain means, such as inheritance or gifts, may be classified as separate property and not subject to division.
