Summit County Property Division Lawyers
There are numerous factors that can influence the course of a divorce proceeding, including whether the divorce is contested or uncontested, the duration of the marriage and the number of assets that must be divided. In these situations, it is wise to work with a skilled family law attorney who can answer your questions and guide you through the legal process.
Often, it is possible to supplant disputes by drafting comprehensive prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. These documents are designed to assist married couples in tracking assets and property that are categorized as either marital assets or nonmarital assets. In a divorce, we must take a careful look at whether these assets are truly marital or nonmarital. Once the proper determination is made, it is our task to appropriately divide them.
In the majority of divorces, property division and spousal maintenance are directly related factors. Property that is received by gift or inheritance, or acquired prior to the marriage is kept as separate or nonmarital property throughout the proceeding. In order to develop an equitable split, our firm will investigate undisclosed assets. Additionally, we will draft final orders to disengage/unentangle real estate protecting you from down markets and the post-decree financial irresponsibility of your ex spouse.

Asset Valuation Attorneys In Summit County
Many divorcing couples assume that asset and debt division has the goal of finding a 50-50 split. Depending on the assets in question, this level of equality might not be reached. Often, the court will focus on reaching an equitable split of the property. To this end, we must typically work with industry experts such as CPAs, realtors and business valuators to ensure the determination of a proper value of an asset.
By working through the divorce mediation process, our lawyers strive to resolve most disputes in the presence of a neutral third-party mediator rather than a judge. We find that divorcing couples appreciate the nonconfrontational setting of a mediation rather than the often-intimidating courtroom setting.
