Developing Fair Solutions in Marital Property Division

We will assist with the classification of your assets as marital and non-marital property, obtain a fair valuation of every asset, and negotiate for a fair distribution of assets and debt. We can help you work out a plan for occupancy of the marital home and how the proceeds will be divided if the home is sold. We will advise you on any tax implications of your property division agreement, consulting with experts when necessary. The agreement we help you reach will be made part of your overall marital settlement agreement and divorce decree.

If there is a question about whether a particular asset should be considered marital property subject to property division, we can assist you in gathering evidence to demonstrate its accurate classification. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we will advocate forcefully for you in court.
