Protecting Your Rights and Interests

Going through a divorce is never easy. You may be concerned about whether you will be able to move forward in your new life as a financially secure individual. Property you once shared with your spouse will now be divided. How can you be sure you will receive your fair share?

She will advocate on your behalf to ensure you and your case are treated in a fair and equitable manner.

Monroeville Attorney for Distribution of Marital Property

Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution of property state. There are several different factors that the court considers when determining how martial property should be distributed. Some of them are:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age of parties involved
  • Earning capacities of parties
  • Who has custody of any minor children
  • Educational backgrounds of parties

Many of our clients ask us what to expect when it comes to the division of their assets. If you are a dependent spouse, at a minimum, you are entitled to 50 percent of all marital property you and your spouse have accumulated. In the end, you could end up with more, or you could end up with less. Property division is determined on a case-by-case basis, which means it is especially important to have an attorney on your side who understands the law and will protect your rights and interests.
