Moorestown Divorce Division of Assets Attorneys – Property Division and Equitable Distribution
It is important that you have an attorney equipped to characterize all assets and property in question, determining if each is considered marital property or separate. Separate property, such as assets held before the marriage, inheritance, certain trusts or those having distinct ownership by one spouse, will be exempt from the division and given outright to the appropriate spouse. Marital property is considered any piece of property or asset that the couple acquired or invested in together or jointly during the marriage. This could include a house, a vehicle, additional real estate, certain investments and other large joint purchases.
Other assets and property are more difficult to characterize and divide, including retirement accounts, pensions, investments, valuable collections and other assets that have accrued value during the marriage. These divisions require the understanding of experienced and skilled representation that can guide the valuation and division of these assets in a fair and equitable manner. Our firm networks with skilled professionals and financial experts to properly divide these accounts.
We also assist in the valuation and division of business interests, companies or startups owned by the couple, including family businesses and professional practices. Our attorneys will provide a clear understanding of what you are entitled to from this division.
