In the state of Kentucky, property division during a divorce or separation can be a complex and emotionally charged process. It is essential to have a clear understanding of the legal framework and key factors that will influence the division of assets and debts. The Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr. is here to guide you through this challenging journey and ensure your rights are protected.
1. Marital vs. Non-Marital Property
One of the first things to consider during the property division process is the distinction between marital and non-marital property. Marital property includes assets and debts acquired during the course of the marriage, while non-marital property generally refers to assets and debts acquired before the marriage or through inheritance or a gift.
It is crucial to identify and classify each asset and debt correctly, as this will determine how they will be divided. Our experienced legal team will help you gather the necessary evidence and documentation to support your claims and ensure all relevant factors are considered.
2. Asset Valuation
Valuing assets is a crucial step in the property division process. It is essential to determine the fair market value of each asset, including real estate, vehicles, financial accounts, businesses, and personal belongings. Having accurate valuations ensures a fair distribution of assets.
We work closely with professionals, such as appraisers and financial specialists, to provide comprehensive and reliable valuations. Our goal is to protect your interests and help you secure a favorable outcome.
3. Division of Debts
In addition to assets, debts must also be carefully considered during the property division process. Kentucky follows an equitable distribution approach, meaning debts accumulated during the marriage will be divided fairly but not necessarily equally.
Our team will meticulously review both marital and non-marital debts, ensuring your rights are protected. We strive to achieve a fair division of debts, taking into account various factors including the source of the debt and the financial situation of each party.
4. Consideration of Factors
The courts in Kentucky consider various factors when determining the division of assets and debts. These factors include but are not limited to:
- The contribution of each spouse to the acquisition of marital property
- The economic circumstances of each spouse at the time of division
- The length of the marriage
- The custodial arrangements for minor children
- The tax consequences of the property division
At the Law Office of Stanley E. Robison, Jr., we understand the significance of these factors and will diligently argue your case to protect your rights and interests. Our in-depth knowledge of Kentucky property division laws empowers us to create strong legal strategies tailored to your unique situation.
