Protecting Your Assets And Property

We assist clients in obtaining an equitable division of:

  • The marital home and other real estate
  • Retirement funds and accounts
  • A family business
  • Family heirlooms
  • Artwork and collectibles
  • Inheritance money
  • Insurance policies
  • Savings accounts
  • Intellectual property
  • Debts

Property accumulated during the marriage is often split 50/50 between the two parties. However, there may be factors that the court views as reasons for a disproportionate distribution of the assets. Property division matters often tie into or overlap with alimony orders.

Retirement benefits and military benefits may often be part of an asset distribution resulting from a divorce. A qualified domestic relations order or QDRO is a court order that recognizes or creates an individual's right to receive all or a portion of the benefits payable under a pension plan. Our firm can help you further understand these types of orders and the process of rolling them over.
