Knowledgeable Assistance With Division Of Marital Assets
Dividing property after a divorce is a complex and often stressful process. Many different aspects of your marriage must be taken into account in order to create a property division agreement that supports your best interests. With the exception of some issues such as inheritance and gifts, any property that is accumulated from the time that you are married until the time that you separate is considered marital property and is eligible for division, regardless of how it is titled and who obtained it. Also, assets and liabilities are not necessarily divided equally.
