Legal And Financial Knowledge About Marital Asset Division That Can Work For You
Analysis and preparation may prove critical to the property division settlement you ultimately obtain through negotiation, mediation or litigation — all of which are familiar territory for us. Applying his strong business and accounting background, lawyer Gregory Dittrich uses current technology, balance sheets and other tools to address division of asset challenges including:
- Division of ownership interests in a family business, 401(k) and other qualified retirement plans, and other assets requiring careful valuation
- Separation of marital assets from personal property that should remain yours alone
- Taking child and spousal support obligations into account when helping you assess ongoing financial needs
- Locating hidden assets or income in situations where one spouse may be attempting to circumvent the law
Minnesota law calls for equitable distribution of property — which may not necessarily mean an equal division, depending on your specific circumstances. While the court works to make sure that each party receives a fair share of assets and debts, this by no means guarantees a 50-50 split.
