Handling Property Division, Asset Division and Debt Division in Contested and Uncontested Divorce

Dividing the property and debts can be a contentious issue in a divorce. Scott represents clients in contested divorce, meaning when the husband and wife cannot reach agreement, and in uncontested divorce, when the spouses can arrive at an agreement on all issues, even the final agreement is some type of compromise.

In any type of property division case, marital property will first need to be determined. Marital property is any type of property, asset or debt that was accumulated during the course of the marriage. Once marital property has been determined, the following factors are taken into account:

  • Economic circumstances of each spouse
  • Each spouse’s financial and nonfinancial contribution to the marital property
  • Value of nonmarital property for each spouse
  • Marital conduct of the parties
  • Child custody arrangements
