How Does Property Division Work During Divorce?
When you turn to our Kentucky law firm, you will work directly with a lawyer who is genuinely concerned with the protection of your property rights and financial interests. We strive to ensure you have the information you need, including answers to the following questions:
- Will I get to keep my wedding ring? Wedding rings are gifts that mean you may be able to keep it. An evaluation of your specific case can help you understand what will happen to your ring.
- What counts as marital property? Marital property is property bought or accumulated by either spouse over the course of a marriage. All marital property is subject to division in divorce.
- Should I move out during divorce? You may be able to stay in your home unless there is a question over your personal safety or the safety of your children.
- If I move out, will that jeopardize my custody rights? Moving out of the home before or during can cause complex custody disputes. We will work diligently to help protect your parental rights and access to your kids.
- How are retirement accounts split? A portion of your long-term savings may be marital property, and therefore, eligible for division. In most cases, spouses are entitled to an equitable share of retirement savings.
