What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

The Iowa court divides marital property equitably after considering the length of the marriage, the age and physical health of each spouse, and their earning capacities. Judges also consider the economic value of contributions where one spouse contributed to the earning power of another by paying tuition bills or the efforts of stay-at-home mothers. Separate property is not considered marital in Iowa.
