As one of the top divorce attorneys in the area, Attorney Washington and her staff are well-versed in the area of Property Division. Property acquired during a marriage can be extensive. Marital Property can include the following:
- Real Estate (Primary Residence, Vacation Homes, Rental Property, Commercial Property)
- Transportation & Recreation Vehicles (Cars, Trucks, Boats, Planes, Jet Skis, RVs)
- Personal Property (Jewelry, Family Heirlooms, Furniture, Tools, Equipment)
- Financials Assets (Bank Accounts, Retirement Plans, Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds)
- Debt (Credit Cards, Loans, Promissory Notes)
This list is extensive and can involve the division property worth thousands of dollars. It is especially important that you hire an attorney that will effectively represent you in getting the most favorable outcome as legally possible.
Property, assets, and/or debts that were accumulated prior to the marriage is usually considered to be separate and not subject to the division. In most cases, property, assets, and/or debts accumulated after the date of separation are also considered to be separate and are not subject to division. By contrast, property, assets, and/or debts that were accumulated during the marriage in most cases, are marital property and subject to being divided by the court.
It is imperative that you consult with an experienced Fayetteville Divorce Attorney who can help you understand the legal steps you must take in order to divide your property.
