Property Settlements

When a couple divorces, there is often a need to divide property. Divorce experts conduct a careful discovery process to determine what, exactly, the marital estate consists of – bank accounts, investments, stocks, bonds, real estate, pensions, 401Ks, businesses, art, antiques, patents, furniture, collectibles, time-shares and more.

Once you know what you have as shared property, family law attorneys guide clients toward proper and fair distribution. In most cases, property is divided equally but sometimes, especially when considering inherited property or gifts, there may be different outcomes.
