Protecting Your Marital Property Rights
Marital property division, meaning “assets and debt obligations,” in Virginia, is called “equitable distribution.” The court must first classify the property into one of three categories: marital, separate or hybrid. The court must also determine the property’s value. Classification and valuation are determined through legal analysis, appraisals, tax assessments or expert opinions. The court, in determining how to divide this property, must consider factors such as:
- Monetary and nonmonetary contributions of each spouse
- Length of the marriage
- Tax implications
- Circumstances that contributed to the divorce, including adultery
Property division presents extremely complex challenges that require the help of an experienced and dedicated legal team. Starting with your initial consultation, we will map out a detailed plan. Through the divorce process, we help identify, value and classify property accumulated during the marriage, including any real estate holdings, business assets or retirement savings that may be involved.
We have developed unique and proprietary tools to help facilitate and explain the division of assets. These tools simplify property division and keep the various assets and liabilities in proportionate perspective. Most importantly, they help us plan efficient strategies and solutions.
