MARITAL PROPERTY

The things you acquired during your marriage are likely to mean something to you in various ways.  You may have been gathering collectibles during the marriage, started a business, or the asset may have sentimental value to you, such as your home. Our attorneys understand that your assets have meaning to you and the division of same may have an everlasting impact on you and your family.  We are zealous advocates that have compassion to your specific needs.  We have extensive experience in both litigation and mediation and with such experience, we are able to provide you with the information necessary so you can plan your future.

The Court starts with the presumption that marital assets and debts will be equally divided between the parties.  There are some factors that may overcome the presumption of an equal distribution.  One of those factors include “the desirability of retaining any asset, including an interest in a business, corporation, or professional practice, intact and free from any claim or interference by the other party.” If you established a business during your marriage and you are concerned about how this divorce may impact your business, contact us to discuss how your business may be impacted.  We have represented people in all financial situations and we understand that your business, no matter how big or small, has a significant impact on you.

Many individuals going through a divorce are also concerned about their rights to reside in their home on a temporary and permanent basis.  Unfortunately obtaining a court order on this issue is not immediate and typically the court will require a mediation before making a decision about exclusive use of a marital residence.  This may bring you stress by having to reside with your spouse pending a resolution to the residence issue and that is one reason our attorneys are compassionate to your needs yet zealous in advocating for your rights.
