For Expert Legal Guidance Specific to Property Division, We Can Help

When choosing an attorney to assist with your divorce, you want a professional with a lot of experience in that specific law area. Our legal team has expertise across a range of specialties, including property division

With law offices in Edwards and Frisco, the professionals at Carlson, Edwards, and O'Connor have the opportunity to help clients in Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake, and Summit counties. Every divorce entails stress and unique challenges, whether amicable or not. If you and your spouse have decided to separate, you need to work with a trusted family law attorney. When it comes to property division, you want to receive what’s rightfully yours.

 

Multiple factors influence a divorce proceeding, whether someone contests it, the number of years married, and any child produced from the marriage. There’s also the issue of assets. For this, you want an attorney with extensive knowledge of property division. This ensures that everything gets split fairly and according to the law.

What Does a Property Division Agreement Include?

Sometimes, couples have a prenuptial or postnuptial used for tracking and division purposes. This legal contract makes it easier to categorize an asset as marital or nonmarital. If you and your spouse don’t have one in place, our attorney will divide assets appropriately. For this, the lawyer develops a draft Property Division Agreement.

 

Typically, each party provides a list of the assets and property they want to keep following the divorce. Often, many discussions go back and forth between both party’s attorneys before reaching an agreement on who gets what. At that point, everything is documented in a formal Property Division Agreement, which is then filed with the court.

 

In most divorces, the division of property and spousal maintenance are directly related factors. The goal is to identify and keep separate any property received as a gift, inherited, or acquired before the marriage. As part of our services, we thoroughly investigate any undisclosed assets. We also draft final orders to either disengage or untangle real estate. These protect you from down markets and post-decree financial irresponsibility of your ex-spouse.

Selecting the Best Property Division Lawyer

Keep in mind that seldom is the division of property 50/50. It all comes down to the type and number of assets involved and how willing your spouse is to let things go. From the court’s perspective, the focus is on reaching an equitable split of any assets. Our property division lawyer will work with several industry experts such as realtors, CPAs, and business valuators to determine an accurate value of assets.

 

Our property division lawyer takes a unique approach to the divorce mediation process by striving to resolve disputes while in the presence of a neutral third-party mediator rather than a judge. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and even intimidated in a courtroom setting, this creates a non-confrontational environment.

 

We offer an excellent strategy and intelligent solutions to the challenges you face. Whether you need professional assistance from one of our highly qualified divorce lawyers or one who handles real estate and criminal cases, we have the experience and expertise you need. Call us today at 970-668-1678 for personalized service.
