If you are preparing for a divorce, then it is likely you have a few concerns about your post-marriage finances. Nevada is considered a "community property" state, which means all assets and income accumulated during a marriage are divided equally among divorcing spouses. This can often lead to friction between the parties and cause considerable worry about their financial outlook.
At Ford & Friedman, our Henderson divorce attorneys have extensive experience handling a variety of multilayered divorce issues, including the division of high-value assets and the marital estate during a divorce. From real estate to pensions to stock options, our firm is ready to help determine what our client is entitled to and what kind of financial future they deserve following the dissolution of their marriage.
Do not walk away from your divorce without the assets you deserve. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
One of the first considerations in the division of assets for divorcing persons is to determine which property is eligible for division during the divorce process. Nearly all assets, income, and debts acquired during the marriage are considered community property and will be divided between the spouses by the court.
There are, however, exceptions. Separate property is all property that each spouse independently acquired before the marriage and is not eligible for division by the court. There are also special kinds of property that can be obtained during a marriage that can still be considered separate.
Even when circumstances are complex, our team can trace assets and assert their correct classification (as community or separate property) before the property division process begins. Our lawyers can also assist with the skillful allocation of debt such as medical or credit card debt.
Special care must be taken when one or both spouses in a divorce own a business. For disputes related to business ownership and valuation, our team has developed a network of accounting, business valuation, real estate appraisal, and related professionals and expert witnesses whom we can call on to ensure that your business is addressed properly during your divorce.
If you have concerns about the division of marital property in your upcoming divorce, then our team is ready to speak with you. Our attorneys always take a collaborative approach in our casework, so our clients can rest assured that their case will always receive the attention and skill it deserves.
