  • The income and earning capacity of you and your spouse, including educational background, training, employment skills, work experience, length of absence from the job market, custodial responsibilities for children, and the time and expense necessary to acquire sufficient education or training to enable you to become self supporting at a standard of living reasonably comparable to that enjoyed during the marriage;
  • The contribution by you to the education, training or earning power of your spouse;
  • The contribution of you, the husband or wife, to the acquisition, dissipation, preservation, depreciation or appreciation in the amount or value of the marital property.

  • The distribution of investment portfolios;
  • The debts and liabilities of you and your spouse;
