We Will Advocate For You During Property Division

Now comes another hard part of a divorce: property division. On the surface, it seem that it shouldn't be complicated, but a number of legal issues can arise.

You've invested your life and time in a person whom you considered a lifetime partner, but your marriage didn't work out. Along the way, you worked together to build an estate that may have included a comfortable home and its furnishings, lake cabin, a string of motor vehicles and a nice-sized nest egg through your retirement accounts.

But now, you're at a crossroads in your life, and you may feel vulnerable. If you live in northern Virginia and seek guidance on what to do, our attorneys at Madigan and Scott, Inc., in Springfield will assist. We understand family law, and we understand the people of northern Virginia, which has been our home for more than 30 years.

Community Property: Homes, Vehicles, Investment Accounts

Property acquired by couples during their marriage belongs to both spouses. Marital property may include:

  • Income earned
  • The family home
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Retirement accounts
  • Interest income from business investments
  • Motor vehicles
We will do our best to ensure fair treatment on asset division matters. We will let you know your options when it comes to dividing this property.

Your house is generally your most valuable asset. Determinations will need to be made regarding whether you wish to retain it, transfer it to your spouse or sell it. The same is true of IRAs and 401(k) plans. As these items may be at stake, you will want to ensure you receive fair treatment during the property division process.

At Madigan and Scott, Inc., we will provide you advice and guidance regarding your legal options. We will also give you a straightforward assessment regarding the possible outcome of your case.
