If you are thinking about ending a marriage, obtain experienced legal help. Even couples divorcing on amicable terms can quickly encounter long, drawn out disputes with disagreements over how assets and debts were handled during a marriage. Property division is one of the most complicated aspects of getting divorced.
I apply my years of experience and legal skills in pursuit of securing my clients’ financial interests. In Nevada, marital assets are distributed equally during a divorce. I offer strong advocacy to make sure all assets considered assets are valued correctly, while addressing other relevant factors.
Pursuing an Equitable Distribution of Community Property
Property division can become highly complicated based on how assets and debts were handled during your marriage. It may be necessary to consult forensic accountants and appraisers to establish the extent and value of your marital estate, including:
- Family-owned business
- Real estate property such as your family home, vacation properties or real estate investments
- Retirement plans including stocks, 401(k) plans and pension plans
- Jewelry, collectible cars and antiques
A key part of my work includes determining how you handled your financial affairs. We may need to trace hidden assets and to establish if you or your spouse commingled any assets acquired individually before getting married. For example, if your estranged spouse inherited money before getting married and then commingled the inheritance with your joint savings, we may need to obtain an equitable share of the inheritance. This is a highly complicated area of the law. For experienced advocacy, you can trust me to fight for you to retain or be awarded your share of the property.
