Dealing with property division and other divorce issues

Property division is one of the most important aspects of your New York divorce -- but do you know your rights in a state courtroom? All too many divorce issues stem from misconceptions about the law, not to mention poor representation from family attorneys. Our team of educated professionals can help you understand your legal rights and responsibilities, helping you get the most out of your property division decision.

No matter whether you are splitting up a million-dollar estate -- or one valued at $1,000 -- you need to know the rules in order to get your fair share. In some cases, it can be difficult to determine who owns what property. Consider the gifts that your family bestowed upon you before you were married; should those be fair game when dividing the marital estate? If you are not careful, your property could end up in the wrong hands. Careful characterization of separate and marital property is critical during the property division stage.

Our experienced attorneys can help with a variety of challenging property division situations, including those involving tricky investment and retirement accounts. Dividing these accounts in a fair manner can be difficult because of simple logistics such as penalties for early withdrawal. Even though this division of property may be complicated, you still deserve to access your share of the marital estate.

All of your property is subjected to a careful court review during your marital dissolution. Keep in mind that equitable distribution does not always mean that an exact 50-50 split occurs; rather, the courts attempt to divide the property in a fair manner. You deserve a strong legal team to represent your interests and make sure you get a fair share of the property -- no matter the size of your marital holdings.
