Marital property is distributed “equitably,” not “equally” in divorce. This often leads to disputes over the meaning of equitable. Before property can be divided, however, you must determine what is included as marital property and how much it is worth. Some types of property can be harder to value than others. People think only of real estate property. They forget other assets such as cars, stock and investment accounts, and antique collections. Our attorneys’ strong business background and our firm’s experience in handling intricate financial issues uniquely positions us to help you distribute assets fairly without devaluing or unduly taxing their value.
When a divorce occurs, property is put into two categories: separate property and marital property. Knowing when an asset was acquired, helps to avoid the misclassification of separate property assets as marital property (which makes them subject to distribution).
Our broad expertise and extensive experience with all types of assets enables us to be strong negotiators on your behalf. We are skilled at working with you to determine how to divide your property fairly and with as minimal an overall financial impact as possible.
We seek to find the best solutions for clients who want to move forward in their lives. Please contact our office to learn how we can help you resolve your property disputes, so you can put your divorce behind you.
