Equitable Distribution of Marital Property

Connecticut is an equitable distribution state, which means in the divorce, all marital property and debt will not necessarily be split in half. The first step is to identify the assets, and accurately assess their value. With the current economy, it is difficult to identify the real value of many assets, including pensions, 401ks, and real estate. We have the insight and experience to you identify all assets and their value accurately.

We will also assist you with a plan of final orders for the following:

  • Property division: Including the transfer of real property and significant assets, including when a family business valuation is required
  • Qualified Domestic Relations Orders: Also known as QDRO, this order divides retirement funds and pensions earned during the marriage
  • Division of liabilities: Including credit card debt and mortgages or secured debts

Use and Possession Orders

We can help you with temporary orders as well, which may help maintain asset value. By securing temporary orders for the use and possession of your house, you will make sure the mortgage is paid on time and your home does not become devalued.

Our firm also handles post-judgment modification for marital property division in cases involving fraud. We can help you ensure an accurate division of your debts and assets.
