High-Income/Asset Division: What You Need To Know
As time goes on, you accrue more assets. When you go through a divorce, these things must be separated. Completing this task can be tremendously complex. MeehanLaw, LLC, has worked with clients throughout Connecticut since 1961. We can examine your case, discuss ways that you can protect yourself and fight for what is yours.
Who Gets The House? And Other Important Questions.
Our top priority is making sure your voice is heard. We will sit down with you one-on-one in order to understand your concerns. Then, we can come up with a plan. Each state has specific laws in place that must be followed. As you might have assumed, anything acquired during your marriage is subject to division. That in itself can be tricky enough. Where things can become even more complicated is dividing separate property.
Separate property is anything you owned or purchased prior to your union. Typically, a court will allow each party to keep their individual assets. Unfortunately, things are not always so simple. Say you owned a vacation home before getting married. Your spouse moved in and, years later, you made a renovation. They may argue that their money was used to make the updates. From real estate to cars, jewelry and artwork, it’s important to make sure you have the right attorney at your side.
