Can I Keep My Property After Divorce?

You may think all assets and property will simply be split down the middle or that each of you get the property that is titled in your respective names, but it is more complicated than that. Hawaii, unlike many states, follows commercial partnership law when dividing the marital estate. We call it "marital partnership principles." Financial security, taxes and cost basis should factor into the value of your property before it is divided. This means that it may not be an even dollar value split, but rather a more equitable and fair division of property and other assets.
