Equitable Division of Property

Depending on the circumstances and the attitudes of the involved parties, during a divorce, the division of assets can be relatively straightforward or extremely complex. To help ensure that your interests are protected and promoted, Deborah Zitomer Esquire, LLC, I will thoroughly investigate and analyze any property division issues that may arise in your case.

Equitable distribution does not necessarily mean that property is divided equally. To determine how assets are divided, the court looks at a variety of factors. It's therefore important to have a strong legal advocate on your side who will work to see that the factors are presented in the light that is most favorable to your interests.

Valuation of businesses and other assets is another important step in the equitable distribution process. To ensure that all property is valued properly, it's often necessary to enlist the assistance of financial experts, including real estate appraisers, pension evaluators and forensic accountants to accurately value pensions and retirement savings, including 401(k) and IRA accounts.

How Alimony Affects Asset And Property Division

In Pennsylvania, claims for alimony are decided at the same time as the equitable distribution of the marital estate is determined. Property division and the payment of alimony may be closely related and may also have tax implications. To help ensure that your long-term financial interests are protected, attorney Deborah Zitomer will thoroughly review your case and all related factors and work tirelessly to help you achieve your goals in divorce.
