Filing for Divorce in Deer Park?

Asset Division and Divorce

Similar to property division, asset division is a very sensitive and volatile area of divorce cases. If this is a contested divorce, the division of assets can be a hug point of contention that results in drawn-out and expensive court proceedings. By hiring an experienced Deer Park divorce lawyer, you may be able to bypass the courtroom proceedings by mediating your divorce and settling your asset division in a peaceful manner. Unfortunately, that is not always possible in a divorce proceeding, and if you do end up going to court, you need an aggressive attorney who will fight for your rights and assets.

In cases where there are a lot of monetary assets to consider, the courts and attorneys will look at when these assets were acquired and who earned or established them. Anything that is determined to be "community," as in it belongs to both spouses, will be divided fairly equally. Assets that are determined to be separate will remain with the individual that is believed to be the owner of them. Also taken into consideration will be debts, child support, spousal support and more. This can lead to a less than equal division of the assets, but in general the courts try to keep it very fair.
