Protecting Our Clients’ Best Interests During Property Division
Divorce is never easy. Dividing marital assets is one of the tasks that can make the process of divorce so challenging. This is because the division of marital property has an emotional and a financial aspect.
People are attached to the things they own. They may have a sense of ownership regarding certain assets or property. Beyond that, the division of property is a division of the financial resources of the marriage that helps prepare each former spouse for life as a financially independent person. The portion of the estate that each takes is useful in establishing a new household.
What Needs To Be Divided?
The court is going to be concerned with whether individual assets and property were part of the marital estate. Almost everything acquired during marriage is marital property and must be fairly divided. There are a few exceptions such as inheritances that are kept completely separate from the marital finances.
We can help you pursue a division of marital property and assets that leaves you well-situated. Common assets that will be divided include:
