Understanding How Assets Are Divided During Divorce
During a divorce, the most stressful concerns typically involve child custody and child support. Dividing a couple’s assets comes in a close third.
Will you have property rights to keeping the house? Will you have to move? Can you keep your car? At Backus, Meyer & Branch, LLP, we can help you understand the legal process and represent you in seeking a fair division.
Knowledgeable Representation For Property Division
At our Manchester law office, we offer years of experience in all aspects of divorce, including division of marital assets and property. In New Hampshire, marital property is distributed equitably, meaning that property accumulated during the marriage is divided in a way that is deemed fair.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t always mean the division is equal to both parties. To ensure that the distribution is as equal as possible, you will want an experienced divorce attorney looking out for you.
Factors That Can Determine How Property Is Divided
Courts take many aspects into consideration when determining an equal asset division during divorce, such as:
- Length of marriage
- Needs, health and age of each party
- Value of property
- Future opportunity to acquire income and assets
- Needs of custodial parents to own property
- Contributions to marriage, care of children and home
- Retirement rights
- Tax considerations
We understand the worry that property division can cause. You need an experienced divorce lawyer to help guide you through the entire marriage dissolution process, including asset, property and debt division. Our deep knowledge can help make the process a bit easier.
