Jennifer Brandeen v. David Brandeen

Divorce: marital property: jointly titled account

CSA No. 2092, Sept. Term 2013. Unreported.

Opinion by Eyler, D.S., J. Filed Nov. 5, 2014.

Appeal from Anne Arundel County. Vacated in part.

RecordFax #14-1105-02, 28 pages.

After determining the value of the couple’s separately titled marital property and ordering a monetary award to accomplish an equal division, the trial court erred by further directing the husband to pay the monetary award out of a jointly titled account; as the wife was already entitled to half the funds in the jointly titled account, using her share for the monetary award would thwart the court’s goal of a 50-50 split.
