Dividing The Marital Estate
Aside from custody and other issues regarding children, there is no more highly contentious aspect of divorce than the distribution of assets, property and debts. Whatever their occupations and levels of sophistication, many people confronting a marital dissolution are shocked by the “letter of the law” in this regard.
Let Us Help You Achieve Your Goals Regarding The Division Of Marital Property
Arizona is a community property state. Essentially, unless a valid prenuptial agreement exists, the vast majority of all money and property received or earned by either spouse during the marriage is subject to 50-50 division in divorce. This includes retirement accounts, stock options, personal collections and just about any other valuable asset you can name.
If you have a lot on the line in a high net worth divorce, your financial situation going forward may well depend not only on your attorney’s specific legal knowledge, but also on his or her financial acumen and access to quality professional resources. At Lincoln & Wenk, PLLC, we exercise extreme diligence and rigor in defending our clients’ financial interests. Our proven capabilities cover the spectrum of:
