What Are You Entitled To?
Generally speaking, you are entitled to your fair share of any assets that were accumulated throughout the course of your marriage, including but not limited:
- 401 (k), 403 (b) assets and other deferred compensation
- Stock options
Any marital assets will be subject to an equitable distribution between you and your divorcing spouse. Our firm'../CM/Custom/Attorneys.asp">divorce attorneys may work closely with forensic accountants to determine the extent of assets in a marital estate. Part of our focus includes understanding how assets were handled during the marriage. Any separate property assets (i.e. inheritance, premarital assets or gifts) may not subject to an equitable distribution. We have the skills and resources to help secure your right to maintain your separate property.
Property division is highly complex, requiring in-depth mathematical and legal knowledge. There are also different approaches that need to be taken into consideration. For instance, qualified plans can be separated between spouses, while a nonqualified plan'../PracticeAreas/Spousal-Support.asp">spousal support or other property could be used to bridge the gap in assets, still ensuring an equitable property division.
