Kirkland Property Division Attorney
Just and Equitable Property Division
In divorce proceedings, one of the areas that must be decided upon is how the assets of the marriage are to be divided. In amicable dissolutions, both you and your spouse can agree upon division of assets and the court can approve your agreement. If you cannot come to terms, the court will decide on a "just and equitable" division of property. In our state, an equitable distribution of property does not necessarily mean an equal division. Experience has proven that the use of a knowledgeable
Kirkland divorce lawyer can be of great help in determining the final division of the marital assets.
At Carillon Point Family Lawyers, we know that you have your life to consider after the divorce is final. It is important that you maintain a good quality of life for yourself especially when there are children involved. All of your assets will be looked at by the courts in deciding property division matters. In most cases, marital misconduct will not play a role in the court's decision. They will look at the type and amount of community and separate property that is involved, how long you were married, who is going to be paying the bills and any special circumstances surrounding your life. The court will also review the financial position of each party including employment, profit-sharing plans and the like.
