Working To Protect Your Property Rights In An Alabama Divorce
The division of marital assets and debts can be one of the most highly contested aspects of an Alabama divorce. Alabama is an “equitable distribution” state. That means all marital assets and debts should be divided between the spouses in a way that is fair to both of them. Property division proceedings can be extremely difficult to resolve, and the assistance of a qualified lawyer can be invaluable.
At The Rose Law Firm, LLC, we have experience resolving a wide variety of complex property division matters. We know how the courts evaluate such things as the length of the marriage, misconduct on the part of either spouse and other issues. You can rely on us to do everything in our power to see that you receive the best available property settlement for you and your family. We are familiar with the nuances of dividing assets such as:
- Real estate, including houses and vacation property
- Professional practices for doctors, lawyers, etc.
- Small businesses or large companies
- Retirement funds, including IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions
Protecting Personal Property Rights And Fairly Dividing The Marital Estate
In every property division proceeding, it’s essential to identify separate and marital property. Separate property includes any asset that you owned before you were married. Any asset that was acquired by either spouse after the date of your marriage is considered marital property.
We work hard to resolve any disputes over separate property in your favor, whether it is an asset that you feel belongs to you alone or a marital asset that your spouse is attempting to claim as separate property. Once the marital estate has been established, we will determine an accurate value and proceed with the division of the assets and debts.
