Baton Rouge Property Division Lawyer
The typical married couple accumulates property and debt through-out their marriage, especially if they have been married a long time. Some couples have been fortunate enough to accumulate high-value property and assets, including expensive homes, cars, art work, stock and other investments. It can be very difficult to determine how to divide this property fairly among both spouses, even if the couple signed a pre-nuptial agreement.
The first important determination is the distinction between marital and personal property. I will then make sure the value of property and assets is fairly assessed. Next, I will work diligently to make sure that my client receives an equitable share of the marital property and is not saddled with too much of the marital debt. Finally, I will negotiate on my client’s behalf to ensure they receive adequate spousal support.
