Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • What Is Separate Property?

    Answer

    Separate property is typically any asset or debt acquired before a marriage, received as a gift, or inherited. Property may also be named as separate in a marital agreement. In cases where the classification of an asset is contested, it may become necessary to “trace” the source of said asset to prove it is truly separate property.

  • What If I have a Marital Agreement?

    Answer

    While a marital agreement can be a helpful tool in the case of a divorce, a signed document doesn’t guarantee its enforceability. There are numerous qualifications an agreement must meet to be upheld in court. If you have an existing agreement, it is highly recommended that you review its terms with an attorney from our firm.

  • What If My Spouse Is Hiding Assets?

    Answer

    The accurate reporting of property is a vital component in the distribution of property. However, a spouse may not always be playing by the rules. It is against the law to attempt to conceal or hide assets in a divorce and if you believe your spouse has done so, do not waste any time in contacting our legal team.

  • Should I Hire an Attorney?

    Answer

    An agreement regarding the division of property can affect your finances for years if not decades to come. With so much on the line, you can’t afford to leave anything to chance.
