Property Division

Protecting your property

Whether it is a new car or a new business, generally all property you acquire during marriage is community property. And when you divorce, this community property needs to be divided. We are here to help you assess what is due to you.

You might expect that, when you divorce, all marital property will be divided equally. However, depending on their case, a couple – or a court – might decide one party is due a greater or lesser portion of the property. As this can have a long-term effect on your finances, it’s important to make sure you receive everything that you have a right to.
