The Property Division Process
During divorce, marital assets and debts must be identified, valued and divided on an equitable, though not necessarily equal, basis.
This is not always easy.
We will work diligently to accurately identify your separate and marital assets and for a fair division of those assets. This includes helping you make the right decision regarding what to do about the house. It’s never easy.
Complex Property Division Cases
Divorces involving closely-held businesses, large investment portfolios, income property, stock options and other assets create complex issues.
We call upon appropriate financial experts, such as business valuation specialists, accountants, appraisers and other professionals who can provide insights and support to achieve fair and workable property settlements.
Our preference is to use cooperative law techniques. But sometimes a party chooses to not cooperate. We will litigate assertively to protect your rights and assets.
For most couples, the home is their most valuable asset.
What happens to the house in divorce is a very important question.
The answer depends on your financial situation, your desires and those of your spouse.
We will look at your overall financial situation and work with you to establish your future goals and desired outcomes.
Then we will develop a legal strategy designed to help you achieve your goals.
We will help you make sensible and realistic decisions about the property issues in your case — and provide assertive representation to protect your rights and assets.
