Protecting Your Interests in Property Division
In some cases, reaching agreement on what is marital property and what is non-marital property can be the most contentious part of property division. For the most part, anything you purchased or went into debt for prior to the day you were married is considered non-marital property. Anything you purchased or went into debt for after the day you were married is considered marital property.
As your San Diego property division lawyer, I can answer any questions you have about the differences between marital and non-marital property. I consistently work toward a property settlement agreement that protects your rights, best interests and future. As a solo practitioner, I can move through many divorce matters seamlessly and expeditiously, minimizing stress for you whenever possible.
One way to limit the amount of time and energy spent on property division is to draft a pre-post marital agreement that clearly defines personal property at the beginning of the marriage. There are other factors that come into play, such as commingling. If you spent money you inherited or that was given to you as a gift on things like home remodeling or your spouse's college degree, there should be special consideration for these expenditures in the divorce settlement. My law firm provides attentive, detailed advocacy in these matters. I strive to reach a fair property division settlement that truly protects your rights and interests.
