Any property acquired during marriage that is not the proceeds of property acquired prior to marriage, a gift or an inheritance can be effectively split up between husband and wife. The factors considered by a court in dividing this property (also known as marital property) are complex. Property includes real property (houses, land and buildings), chattels (cars, clothes, furniture etc.) bank accounts and any right to receive money in the future. Your retirement benefits are property!
