How do I ensure my right to equitable distribution of marital assets?

The rights to equitable distribution (“ED”) of marital property vest at the time of the parties’ separation. The rights to ED are not, however, automatic, but must be specifically asserted by one or both of the parties. Upon application of a party, the court shall determine what is the marital property and shall provide for an equitable distribution.
