Suffolk County Property Division Lawyer

Property Division in Divorce

Property division is most often a stressful and very emotional matter to deal with in any divorce case. It can be very uncomfortable and distressing to have to discuss the division of things such as bank accounts, stocks, pensions, deferred compensation, real estate, businesses, licenses and the acquired items that were part of the family home. Even marital debt such as credit card bills, judgments, liens and other pending lawsuits can be divided and distributed as part of the property division. It can be even more worrisome than usual and more complex if one or both people involved are wealthy individuals or own their own business.

It is very important that you contact a Suffolk County divorce attorney if you are concerned with ensuring you have fair property division. Our firm will be able to help you to ensure that this process is resolved in a fair manner.
