Your Skilled Guides For Property Division In Divorce
At The Law Center P.C., we are here to guide individuals through divorce and the attendant financial ramifications. Because dissolving a marriage is a life-changing process, clients appreciate our attorneys’ acumen and dedication on behalf of their financial and personal interests.
We assist with the valuation and equitable division of all types of assets, including:
- Houses, vacation homes, investment real estate and other real property
- 401(k)s, IRAs, pensions and other retirement accounts
- Bank accounts, stocks and bonds
- Businesses and professional practices
- Cars, boats, ATVs and other vehicles
- Fine art collections and other valuables
Colorado is not a community property state; it is an equitable division state. This means that marital property must be divided fairly — but not necessarily 50-50 — between spouses.
Retaining Control Of The Outcome
A judge does not know you or the details of your situation. That is why it is usually best to remain in control of the outcome by keeping property division outside of court proceedings. Negotiating a property settlement agreement outside of court can allow you to make the decisions instead of leaving it up to the judge.
We will thoroughly investigate your case so that we are armed with the facts and evidence necessary to negotiate the best property division settlement for you and your family. But if your spouse refuses to participate in reasonable negotiations, including mediation or arbitration, we will take your case before a judge and argue on your behalf.
Offering Creative Solutions
We view ourselves as problem solvers, finding creative solutions to complex concerns. For instance, one spouse may not be willing to sign a property settlement agreement that gives the other hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, he or she may feel that using the money to create education accounts for the children is a far more palatable arrangement.
