Responsive Representation When You Need It Most

The Complexities Of Marital Property Division

Getting divorce does not only mean the end of a marriage, it also means the beginning of a new life for you and your family. One major step in entering this new chapter is dividing the assets you acquired during your marriage. In Pennsylvania, you need to be sure that your lawyer has a complete understanding of what marital property is and how to divide it if you are looking to keep your fair share in your divorce.

At the Wexford Law Office of John M. Schaffranek, PLLC, we are committed to guiding you through the intricacies of property division. Our attorneys believe in providing our clients with the personalized and dedicated representation they deserve through every step of their divorce. We are ready to help you overcome the challenges of your property division to pursue a fair outcome through the equitable distribution process.

Understanding Equitable Distribution

Pennsylvania courtrooms use the process of “equitable distribution” to divide marital assets (the possessions and money either spouse earned during the course of their marriage). This process does not divide assets in a 50/50 split but instead seeks to split the assets in a way that is fair for everyone. Depending on factors like the length of the marriage, contributions to marital property, and future financial circumstances of each spouse, one spouse may receive more in the divorce than the other.

Whether you are concerned about who keeps the family home, how retirement accounts are divided, or the responsibility for credit card debts, we are on your side. We are here to answer your questions, explain your options, and defend your best interests throughout your entire divorce.
