Marital Property Division
During any divorce or dissolution, the parties must divide the assets of the marriage. Often, both parties to a marriage have brought in “separate” property, which may have been comingled with the marital estate over the years. Our experienced professionals can assist in achieving a fair and equitable division of the assets of the marriage, while preserving separate property for our clients whenever possible.
In Ohio, the money or property you bring into a marriage remains yours. An inheritance or gift given to you by family or otherwise during the marriage is your separate property as well. Yet, issues of separate property often make property division more complex, particularly in a long-term marriage, high-worth retirement accounts, or when one spouse has used funds which were separate property to pay off a house, car, credit card or other marital debt. We have a full list of Divorce FAQs to help, but please call us if you have specific questions.
Our extensive backgrounds in complex litigation allow our family law attorneys to sift through a multifaceted financial picture to arrive at fair and equitable resolutions for our clients. We work with you to identify separate property and protect it from division during the divorce process.
