Asset Division in Divorce

Property Division in Divorce

In any divorce, the subject of asset division can be a very difficult and stressful issue to face. The classification of marital assets is not always simple. In order to save time, expense and the stress of divorce litigation, a collaborative approach to the matter is often recommended.

There may be difficulties that arise no matter what the worth of your property and assets are and it may prove to be even more difficult if you are involved in a high net worth divorce. Having a Suffolk County divorce attorney to assist you and your spouse in reaching an agreement out-of-court regarding asset division will save you the time and stress you would otherwise have dealt with in court. It is also less costly than litigating the matter in court.
