The guidance you need for property division concerns

On Behalf of | Jan 20, 2017 | Property Division |

Divorce comes with numerous financial issues, and it is normal for anyone in Pennsylvania considering this major step to have serious concerns regarding money and asset protection. We understand these concerns, and we have the extensive experience required to effectively navigate property division issues and lay the foundation for a strong post-divorce future. If you have questions about money and divorce, it can be useful to understand which factors may impact your final divorce order.

Marital property is any asset, money and properties included, that was accumulated or earned over the course of a marriage. According to Pennsylvania law, all marital property must be equitably divided between the two divorcing parties. That is not to say that the division will be equal, but the law demands a distribution that is fair, considering both marital assets and liabilities.

When the court is considering the division of property, there are many factors that are carefully weighed before the final property division ruling is made. The length of the marriage, the age of both spouses, the earning capacity of the parties, child custody of minor children and even educational backgrounds are all important factors. While divorce may bring significant financial changes for both parties, we can help protect your rights during the property division process.

Divorce is challenging, but you have the right to seek an outcome that provides you stability for years to come. We know how to protect your interests, as well as fight for your rights in cases that involve suspected hidden assets and other complicated factors. Learn more about how property division works and why you need an experienced lawyer to guide you through this process by scheduling an appointment with a member of our team.
