As equitable distribution jurisdictions, both Maryland and Washington, D.C. are more interested in achieving a fair division of property between divorcing spouses than the strictly equal division that often applies under the law of community property states. An accurate valuation of the marital estate is an essential first step in dividing it, but where you go from there depends a great deal on your specific financial circumstances.
Some examples of the kinds of property division problems our attorneys can help resolve:
- Identification and recovery of marital assets that have been concealed, undisclosed or improperly transferred
- Characterization problems related to the marital or separate nature of a given asset
- Asset valuation problems related to property from the marital residence and vehicles to interests in closely held businesses or investment accounts
- Division of pension benefits and retirement accounts of all kinds
- Apportionment of marital debts and liabilities
- Valuation and division of originally separate assets that have lost their separate character during the marriage
- Marital property interests affected by the terms of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement
Different people face different property division problems in divorce, from basic asset protection to highly complex characterization and valuation issues. Our attorneys can guide you through the equitable distribution of your marital estate no matter how extensive or complicated it appears to be.
