Property & Asset Division: Helping You Protect What's Most Important To You

Having been through a divorce myself, I understand how emotional the process can be and how it may seem hard to give up any of your assets. As your lawyer, I will work hard to protect your right to an equitable amount of your marital assets.

I have been involved in approximately 3,000 family law cases in Arlington and throughout the Washington, D.C., metro area. When it comes to divorce and all the associated issues, I have the deep legal knowledge and experience in trial and negotiations you need to make sure you start your new life on the right foot.

When it comes to the division of assets and debt, family courts in Virginia rule on a basis that is equitable. It's important to understand that equitable doesn't necessarily mean equal. Judges must look at certain criteria to determine how much each spouse contributed to those assets — whether monetary or nonmonetary through maintenance and care.

It is also important that assets are valued correctly. You will need to provide me with as much financial information as possible, so that we can paint an accurate picture of your situation. The valuation process affects numerous other aspects of the divorce process, including the amount of alimony and child support you can expect to pay or receive.

From Simple To Complex Property Division, It's Important To Keep Your Options Open

For assets such as homes, investment accounts, furniture and cars, I will work as hard as possible to protect your right to property that is yours. For those with extensive or complex assets such as closely held businesses, family-owned businesses, professional practices and investments, I provide the comprehensive representation and counsel necessary to properly identify, valuate, protect and divide these and other types of high net worth assets.

In all these matters, it's important to keep your options open. Perhaps you and your spouse have ended your relationship on relatively good terms and can reach amicable agreements on how to divide your property and other assets. In such cases, mediation offers a quick, cost-effective and less stressful alternative to the numerous emotional and financial challenges that come with going to trial. However, if the complex nature of your case necessitates going to trial, I am more than ready to aggressively advocate on your behalf.
