Protecting Your Interests Throughout The Process Of Dividing Property In Divorce
Property division is one of the major components in any divorce. At the law office of Stuart C. Axilbund, Attorney at Law, clients’ cases are treated individually and given the personal attention they deserve. Every couple’s financial situation is different, and each property division plan must be able to address their specific concerns and goals.
Mr. Axilbund takes the time with each client to examine options and strategies that best reflect the client’s current circumstances and long-term goals. He has nearly 30 years of experience handling a wide range of divorce issues, including high-asset divorces and debt division issues.
What To Know About Property Division
Property division can be handled in many ways. In the traditional way, family courts will decide how assets are divided. With prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, parties can decide these issues prior to marriage or at its end, thereby retaining control themselves.
At the firm, a well-rounded approach is used to divide not just assets, but debts as well. Stuart Axilbund has experience handling a wide range of items to divide, including:
- Marital homes
- Other real estate
- Retirement accounts
- Business assets
- Cars and other vehicles
- Personal property
In Maryland, anything acquired after marriage is considered marital property, except items set forth in a prenuptial agreement, inherited property, gifts to one spouse and anything they each owned prior to the marriage. The firm will explain how assets and debts will likely be divided and make recommendations to achieve favorable results. They will also work toward discovering hidden assets if that is an issue you might face.
