Property Distribution

When a couple is going through a divorce, property distribution is a major concern for most. Property that is considered marital property subject to distribution is: 

Property each individual accumulates during the marriage except property obtained during the marriage through an inheritance or a gift. 

However, even when marital property is obtained as a gift or through an inheritance, it may still become marital property if it is commingled with other marital property or when the other spouse becomes a co-owner.  

Property distribution during a divorce can be very complicated.

We know that during a divorce, which is a time of significant emotional stress, you will be asked to make financial and legal decisions that will impact the rest of your life. At Kearns Rotolo Law, our attorneys will work closely with you to negotiate and finalize your property distribution in such a way that will allow you to feel your best interests are being well represented.
