Kansas Property Distribution

In Kansas divorce, the Court may divide all property including gifts and inheritances, property owned before the marriage, property acquired in a spouse's own right during the marriage, and property acquired by the spouse's joint efforts. 

In dividing the property in a Kansas divorce, the Court will consider the following factors:

  • the length of the marriage; 

  • the age and health of the spouses;

  • how and by whom the property was acquired; 

  • the conduct of the spouses during the marriage as it relates to the disposition of their property;

  • the present and future earning capacity of the spouses;

  • family ties and obligations;

  • any dissipation of assets by a spouse; the tax consequences of property distribution;

  • any other factor necessary to do equity and justice between the spouses;

  •  the property owned by the parties; and 

  • the allowance of maintenance or not.
