Protecting Your Financial Interests In Marital Property Division
Dividing assets can be one of the most challenging aspects of a divorce. Without experienced legal advice and representation, it can be extremely difficult for spouses to negotiate and agree to a fair division of all assets acquired during the marriage.
At the Law Offices of Julie M. Herber, clients meet with me personally. As a businessperson and experienced lawyer practicing in Washington since 1994, I am prepared to answer your questions and guide you through the process of dividing your assets during divorce.
Sorting Out Separate And Community Property
Many of my clients are concerned about what assets they will be left with when the divorce is final. If you and your spouse have a closely held business and other various assets, it will be important to trace all contributions to identify separate property (owned by one spouse prior to the marriage) and community property (acquired by either spouse during the marriage).
I will work to divide your estate in an economical manner, so you can recover financially and move forward with your life.
Generally, assets acquired by one spouse through an inheritance or gift will be considered separate property owned by only the recipient of the assets. However, it is important to obtain advice from a lawyer who has experience tracing assets and has handled similar cases in the past.
I have a proven record of successfully tracing property contributions and crafting creative settlement agreements. Many of my clients and members of the legal community have attested to my skill in this area.
