Fighting For Your Fair Share Of The Marital Estate

Building a new life after divorce is costly. You may have spent years or even decades sharing expenses during your marriage. Establishing a new household as a single person can be surprisingly expensive.

Not only do you deserve to leave your marriage with a fair share of the assets and property, it may be essential to you being able to get off the ground financially.

There are two ways to approach dividing the marital estate: create an agreement through negotiation or ask the court to divide the estate. We can negotiate with your spouse and his or her attorney to secure an agreement that works for you. If we are not able to achieve agreement, we can ask the court to do so and present a strong case for an equitable division of property that benefits you.

Benefits Of Having An Agreement

Many divorcing couples try and approach this issue on their own, or otherwise feel an agreement is not necessary. The reality is that the division of property is almost always more complex than people think. Even if you are in agreement today, you may not be tomorrow.

Some of the potentially complicating issues we are skilled at dealing with include:

  • Small-business ownership
  • Characterization of property as marital or nonmarital
  • Division of retirement benefits
  • Division of debts
