Family Law Attorneys Explain Splitting Assets in Rockland County and Bergen County
This may be your first divorce, but it certainly isn’t ours. After nearly 40 years of service to New York and New Jersey families, we are confident we can provide you with the legal guidance you require. Divorce attorney Paul Goldhamer has the decades of service, client focus and a reputation for results, which will allow you to move forward with your life after divorce.
A tremendous amount is at stake in the division of marital assets phase of your divorce. The outcome will determine who will retain control of valuable real estate, residences and retirement funds accumulated during your marriage.
Are NY and NJ Community Property or Separate Property States?
Although New York and New Jersey are separate property states, both require the “equitable distribution” of all marital property. Marital property in New York and New Jersey includes most assets acquired during the marriage but not all. After it is determined what is separate property and what is marital property, the marital property must be split equitably.
If it is possible to reach an amicable property division settlement, we can do it through skillful negotiation. If litigation is necessary, we will not hesitate to aggressively safeguard your interests in court. We pursue exhaustive investigation of hidden assets belonging to a spouse who has been less than forthcoming. All our work, both behind the scenes and in a courtroom, is for the goal of getting you a fair and reasonable outcome.
