Property Division Lawyers in Denver
Knowledgeable Assistance to Get Your Fair Share
When you and your spouse are going through a divorce, you may be concerned about how property division will be handled. Although the process can be straightforward, you may have questions or misconceptions about what property is subject to division and what is exempted. At Denver Family Lawyers, we can ensure you are fully aware of your rights and the most effective steps you can take to protect your property.
What Property Is Subject to Division?
Marital property, also known as community property, are items which you and your spouse shared and was acquired during the course of your marriage. Non-marital property are those items or assets which were brought into the marriage or were acquired as a gift or inheritance by one spouse. Characterizing and valuing property can be complex, but our Denver divorce attorney can help identify separate and marital property before the division process begins.
Whether the property is marital or was brought into the marriage is also important if you go to litigation over your divorce. The starting point is typically an equal division of marital assets, before other considerations are taken into account.
When decisions are made about property division, a few considerations should be kept in mind, including:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse's contributions to the marriage
- Each spouse's earning capacity, health, and age
- Each spouse's income and current job, as well as future job prospects
