We analyze your marital assets and divide them fairly
According to the law, any possession or wealth accumulated after saying “I do” belongs to both you and your spouse equally. This can bring about much turmoil during a divorce as you have to consider who takes what — and it’s not always that easy. Usually, ownership disputes involve land, houses, joint credit accounts, cars, cash, and other shared assets.
Our lawyers will analyze your assets to determine what qualifies as marital property, then we’ll work toward creating a fair plan both of you can be happy with. In some cases, a financially irresponsible or immoral spouse may entitle the other to more than half. If you need help with marital property division, contact us today.
Secure your financial future
Spousal support (or alimony) refers to the financial assistance received from your ex-spouse after a divorce. Similar to child support, spousal support is reserved for your own expenses. The amount of spousal support you can receive depends on factors like:
- How long you were married
- The lifestyle maintained during that marriage
- Marital misconduct
- Your income and earning potential
- Your ex-spouse’s income and earning potential
In taking a look at your lifestyle before the divorce and the outlook of your lifestyle after the divorce, our lawyers will figure out how much support you’re eligible to receive.
