There Is No Substitute For A Full Accounting
Many couples think they understand the full range of assets. But many items are subject to divorce, including jointly held homes, income and investments. Even pensions are subject to property division. Accurate accounting of your assets is key to ensuring fair distribution.
You Can Negotiate
There are many instances where you may want to keep an asset in full, such as your house or a retirement account. In some cases, we can negotiate with your former spouse to keep that asset whole in exchange for other property.
Some Things Are Not Subject To Property Division
In some cases, your property may be protected from division. Only marital property can be divided during a divorce. This means that if you acquired property prior to marriage, inherited property or otherwise received gifts just for you, you may be able to maintain that property in whole.
