Protecting Your Property In Divorce
Indiana law views all property each spouse owns at the time of the filing of divorce as marital property. Many people are confused about the scope of the marital estate when entering into divorce. It is critical for individuals to consult with a knowledgeable property division lawyer to protect their rights.
Deep Knowledge Of Property Division And Diligent Preparation Of Your Case
A significant benefit that our family law clients receive is our diligence in preparing every case for trial, beginning on day one. There are a variety of situations where the presumption that all assets will be divided could result in an unjust settlement. We take the time to evaluate every relevant detail to ensure that the rights of our clients are protected in arriving at a property settlement. Through diligent preparation, backed by our deep knowledge of Indiana family law, we are able to evaluate whether a straight 50-50 division of assets is fair and just.
There are often circumstances that require a deviation from the general rule in dividing assets. For instance, one party in the divorce may have owned the family home for many years prior to a short marriage. In arriving at an equitable distribution of the property, it may be unfair to spilt the equity in the home down the middle in some situations.
Our lawyers are well-prepared to protect the rights of our clients in resolving a wide variety of property division issues involving:
- The marital home
- Second homes and investment properties
- Retirement accounts and pension plans
- Hidden assets
- Investment portfolios
- Car, jewelry and other valuable personal property
- Business interests and valuation matters
We frequently work with professionals, such as business or real estate appraisers and forensic accountants, to provide evidence in the value of substantial assets.
How property is divided at the time of a dissolution will have a long-term impact on your financial future. You deserve to have a lawyer who will take the time to fully prepare your case for a successful outcome. The attorneys at Allen Wellman McNew Harvey, LLP, have substantial experience in achieving results.
