Division of Marital Property Can Protect Your Assets
The division of property process is extremely stressful for any individual, particularly those involved in a high net worth divorce. The marital property to be divided may include:
- Home or Residence
- Stocks and Bonds
- Business Valuations
- Deferred Compensation
Because Connecticut is an equitable division state, a judge will not divide marital assets straight down the middle. Instead, property is divided based on a number of factors relating to equity and fairness. Some of the factors considered by the judge include:
- Length of the marriage
- Contributions of the parties
- Ongoing support obligations
- Difference in income between the parties
Putting the Interests of My Clients First
As your attorney, I always put your interests first. I work relentlessly to find the most efficient and effective result based on your circumstances, so that you don’t waste your time or money. I use a cost-benefit analysis to weigh the potential for success or failure of any legal option. At every turn, I try to find the legal solution and approach that works best for you.
Although I am always ready and willing to fight for your property rights in court, I also encourage my clients to consider a more amicable solution when possible. I can assist you through a more cooperative method such as mediation or collaborative divorce, which can help avoid the cost, time and contentious nature of litigation.
I am available to answer your legal questions.
