Fighting For A Fair Outcome
Aside from child custody matters, property division tends to be the most complex aspect of divorce. Pennsylvania follows the model of equitable distribution, meaning that marital property must be divided fairly, but not necessarily equally.
The first step is to identify all marital property and debt that must be divided. This includes a thorough investigation of all marital assets, including:
- Real estate
- Bank accounts
- Investment accounts
- Retirement accounts (pensions, 401(k) plans and IRAs)
- Vehicles, boats, RVs
- Other significant property acquired during the marriage
- Martial debt (including mortgages and credit card debt)
Property and debt acquired prior to marriage or after separation may be considered separate and belonging to just one spouse. The same would be true of an inheritance given to just one spouse or property specifically listed in a prenuptial agreement.
If you are facing divorce, it is important that you receive your fair share of property while not taking on more than your fair share of debt. As a skilled property division attorney, Ayla O’Brien is here to protect your interests and guide you to a successful outcome.
