 Common Property is not the Minnesota Law

Minnesota is not a common property state. What this means for your division of marital property is that it does not have to be divided 50-50. A family law attorney who understands the complex Minnesota Common Property Law will be the best tool for you in order to keep the property that is rightfully yours. The law takes into consideration what is classified as real property and what is classified as personal property. The distinction between the two can seem arbitrary until you understand how important it can be for your unique case.


Real Property vs Personal Property in Divorce

The distinction between the two types of property can be extremely important in your divorce proceeding and it is important to have an expert family law attorney who understands the differences fighting for your rights. The two types of property are real property and personal property. Real property are things such as real estate, commercial property or land. Personal property includes bank accounts, stocks or bonds, retirement accounts, automobiles, recreational vehicles, clothing, jewelry and furniture. Marital property is all property, real or personal, acquired by either spouse during the duration of the marriage. Non-marital property is property that either spouse acquired separately and usually prior to the marriage. Non-marital property can include things such as gifts, inheritance and property acquired before the marriage. This property is not subject to division in most cases.
