Identifying and Distributing Marital Assets and Debts
The first step in asset division is deciding which assets were acquired during the marriage and are considered community property such as:
- Family business
- Family home and vacation homes
- Antiques and jewelry
- Real estate investments
- Pensions, 401(k) plans, stocks and other retirement plans
- Cars, motorcycles, boats and other recreational vehicles
Community property must be divided equitably during a divorce. This does not necessarily mean a 50-50 split. One party may appear to walk away with more assets but the idea is for both sides to obtain an equal value of the marital estate. Property settlements can range greatly depending on the circumstances involved. Make sure you have an experienced lawyer in your corner from the onset to protect your financial interests.
At KAINEN LAW GROUP, we consult industry-leading experts, including forensic accountants when determining the value of assets in a marital estate. We have experience uncovering hidden assets and tracing financial records to understand how your finances were handled during your marriage. If your ex commingled any assets he or she acquired before you got married with your joint finances, you would be entitled to an equitable share of the portion commingled. No type of property division case is too complicated for us to take on. We will protect your financial interests at every turn possible.
