Equitable Distribution Of Property
Pennsylvania courts divide marital property according to principles of equitable distribution. Essentially, the court will determine what is fair based on all the facts and circumstances. There are several keys to protecting your property interests during divorce — among them:
- Obtaining accurate property valuations, including business valuations
- Maintaining the character of separate property
Our lawyers are intimately familiar with all the nuances of asset distribution in Pennsylvania. We regularly handle complex cases involving high-value assets such as:
- Closely held business interests
- Retirement plans and pensions
- Investment accounts
- Stock options
- Executive compensation plans
- Real estate
- Major family trusts and inheritances
Should any of these issues come up on appeal, our lawyers have a wealth of experience navigating the appellate process at both the state and federal levels.
Additionally, we provide guidance on updating your estate plan and protecting your assets following divorce.
