What You Need To Know About Equitable Division
In Virginia, marital property and assets must be divided equitably, which means fairly but not always equally. There is a range of factors that can influence the terms of your settlement, including:
- Each spouse’s income and earning potential
- Each spouse’s contribution throughout the marriage
- Prenuptial contracts
- Child custody and support obligations
Advocating For Fair Terms
Although many families have similar goals when negotiating property settlement agreements, no two families have the same financial circumstances. Attorney Spencer customizes his approach to suit your specific situation.
Our lawyer knows how to present a compelling argument to secure optimal terms regarding property and assets that include:
- Your home
- Banking accounts, including savings and checking accounts
- Investment and retirement assets, such as pensions
Property division settlements encompass more than assets and property; they also include debt obligations. We are committed to minimizing your obligations and maximizing the assets you receive in your settlement.
