Answers To Your Important Questions
Property division will have a major impact on various aspects of your life, and it is important to get answers and information about your individual concerns. Here are some of our property division FAQs:
- Who will keep the house? This differs from case to case. If you want to keep the home, you should weigh your ability to make mortgage payments and pay property taxes on one income. In some cases, it is beneficial to sell the home or negotiate for other assets.
- Will my spouse have to leave the house? Most spouses do not want to live together during the divorce process. We can discuss with you the possibility of seeking a beneficial arrangement during this time or drafting a separation agreement.
- What will happen to my retirement assets? Retirement assets and long-term savings accrued during the marriage are likely marital assets, eligible for distribution. You may be able to negotiate terms that suit your retirement goals.
- Will I have to pay off debt? Debts carried by both parties are subject to equitable distribution during the divorce process. We can help you pursue a final order that does not leave you with an overwhelming portion of marital debt.
- Can I keep my health insurance? Health insurance is a complex matter, and we can help you fight for a fair outcome regarding this specific important concern.
