Equitable distribution is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s method for determining division of marital property. Different states have different methods of dividing marital property. Equitable distribution is used when people have not been able to come to an agreement and must have a trial to divide their assets and debts, and resolve other issues with their divorce. The trial is called an Equitable Distribution hearing. It will decide whatever issues the divorcing parties have including spousal support, child support, custody, visitation, property division, debt division, business division, deferred compensation division, grounds of divorce, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
