The equitable distribution of assets and debts that occurs during a divorce is an absolutely necessary element for the disentanglement of what was a single financial entity into two separate individuals again. Ensuring that your contributions to the marital estate are respected and that your specific desires regarding the assets of the marriage are effectively pursued requires the representation of an attorney with extensive skill and experience.

We will talk to you and learn what goals you may have personally regarding the assets from the marriage. We will also perform a thorough analysis of how your assets are likely to be divided by the courts.
The courts look at a variety of factors when determining how to most equitably divide a marital estate, including monetary and non-monetary contributions to the marriage.
Common assets that need to be divided include:
- Real estate
- Retirement benefits (401k, IRAs, pensions)
- Military retirement
- Residual government benefits
- Stock options
- Deferred compensation
- Golden parachute payments
- Interests in family businesses, professional practices or closely-held business entities
- Bank accounts
- Brokerage accounts
- Antiques, artworks, collectibles
- Motor vehicles, boats
Our attorneys are skilled at securing the appropriate distributions of assets even when such complications as military retirement and benefits, and government benefits and the special rules that govern those types of assets are part of your divorce.
