Don’t leave property division up to chance

Apr 3, 2019 | Firm News, Property Division

Untangling years or even decades of shared marital property is not a small undertaking. Aside from the financial interests that both you and your ex have, there are probably also significant emotional investments involved. This means that dealing with property division is more complicated than most people in West Virginia might think.

It is possible that despite these complicating factors, you and your ex could reach an amicable agreement on your own. However, more likely than not, you will hit a few roadblocks during the process. Whether you are fighting for an asset important to your financial and emotional well-being or your ex is trying to complicate matters, property division can quickly go south.

This is especially true when it comes to assets that are otherwise complicated or burdened with layers of emotional attachment. This can include stocks, investment property or other investments. Retirement funds are another sticking point that leaves many people confused. Vehicles, businesses, inheritances, family heirlooms and more can all create an environment that people find difficult to fully deal with.

We understand that you do not want to leave your ex without their fair share of the marital assets, but you want to make sure that your rights are upheld and respected. This means that you must be focused on the process and prepared to both negotiate and stand your ground depending on the situation.
