Elizabethtown Property Division Attorney
Nearly every aspect of a divorce has the potential to be contentious and fraught with difficulties. However, marital property division – whether you and your partner are dividing up basic possessions or are looking to break up the family business – can ignite emotions, stall proceedings and cause costs to skyrocket.
At Dowan Law Offices, we don’t want to see this happen to you.
Leading You Through Simple And Complex Property Division During Divorce
With more than 10 years of experience helping couples and families through divorce, our family law attorney, LeeAnna Dowan, knows firsthand the challenges that face people as they start dividing their lives. It’s this understanding that helps her guide her clients through emotional and legal issues and look at the larger picture.
There’s more to property division than just real estate or a co-owned business. By working together, we can protect your interests, ensure you are treated fairly, and come away from your divorce ready to move forward. Below are some of the property division items we will help you consider:
- Retirement accounts, investments, pensions and work or military benefits
- Bank accounts
- The family home as well as any other real estate
- A family-owned or closely held business
- Distinguishing marital versus separate property
If you and your spouse fail to reach an amicable agreement, a judge may make a ruling on how your property will be divided. There are numerous factors the judge will consider, including the length of your marriage, each party’s needs and future earning potential, contributions made to acquiring property during the marriage, and the outright value of the property and assets.
Just because you don’t have a vacation home or a fleet of cars, doesn’t mean your property division proceedings won’t be complex.
It’s important to protect yourself during the property division process. For example, in some cases, debts may be affixed to one party when the responsibility should befall the other. As your lawyers, we will thoroughly investigate and valuate all aspects of your divorce. Furthermore, we can help you file an appeal should the terms of your divorce decree prove unreasonable.
