Asset Division

Dividing Property After a Divorce

During a divorce, there are numerous details that need attention. In addition to the emotional loose ends that need to be tied up, there are also tangible parts of your marriage that need to be addressed. What will happen with your house, car, pension and debt?

At the Mulinazzi Law Office, we help clients resolve property division disputes throughout Columbia, Maryland, and the surrounding areas. Contact our firm online or call 410-290-6270 to schedule your appointment.

Looking at the Past

In property division cases, the court strives to fairly divide assets that were acquired during the marriage. Most property that was acquired during the marriage will be divided. Some assets — such as a family business, car or home — may be sold in order to be equally distributed. It is important to understand that “equitable distribution” does not always mean splitting things 50/50. We work closely with our clients to help them understand their rights and options throughout the process.

Looking Ahead

After the marriage has ended and the property has been divided, there are still factors left to be addressed. Alimony, also known as spousal support, can be awarded to one party to help them maintain the same quality of life they had during the marriage. Our lawyers work with clients to help them determine if they are likely to receive support, and to determine how long such support would last.

Achieving Beneficial Results

When clients are concerned with achieving results that will help prevent problems in the future, it is important to work with the other party. We encourage our clients to mediate their choices, as this can help prevent a court decision that does not take your needs into account.
