What personal property can I take with me or what debts will I have to pay?

Any property or debts that you had prior to the marriage, or that you inherited during the marriage, or that you were given separately as a gift, is usually considered your personal property or debt. Any other property or debt that was acquired while you were married, regardless of who paid for it or incurred it, is joint marital property or debt and will have to be divided by the Judge if you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement. As in all family law matters, this issue can get very complex. You should consult with an attorney about your individual case.
