Quality Representation To Protect Your Interests
Dividing marital property in a divorce or dissolution involves consideration and analysis of complex issues of characterization:
- Is the property community or separate?
Absent the parties’ agreement, a net equal division of the community estate is required.
A solid and thorough understanding of your marital property rights combined with a flexible and creative approach toward achieving the net equal division of your assets and debts without involving the court is the best way to ensure that your marital estate is fairly divided between you and your spouse. You can also avoid being consumed by legal fees through this process.

You are entitled to half of the community assets. With complex divorce cases, it is essential to handle the property division aspects with great care and attention to detail. Failing to uncover assets or to value them properly will result in an unfair settlement. Tax consequences impacting the sale of an asset, fluctuating values in stocks and the present and future values of retirement accounts are issues that your attorney needs to recognize.
