Division of Property Attorney Helps You Get Your Fair Share of the Assets

Embarking on your new life with the settlement you deserve

The Law Office of Linda M. DiPasquale will work hard to ensure that the division of property and assets in your divorce is fair and equitable.

Regardless of whether you were a sole or joint breadwinner in the family, the property settlement in your divorce will be a key determinant of your financial condition in the coming years. It's essential that your interests are protected when dividing assets, and that you receive the best settlement possible for your unique circumstances. A Buffalo property division and divorce lawyer can help.

I have 25 years of experience handling division of property issues and guiding clients through the divorce process. I work diligently to achieve fair property division settlements that enable my clients to move on with their lives on a solid financial footing.

Understanding the property division process

During divorce, a couple's marital assets and debts must be identified, valued and divided equitably by agreement or the court. This is easier said than done. In some circumstances, a spouse's separate assets (property held before marriage or obtained through gift or inheritance) may become part of the jointly held marital property. An increase in value of separate assets also can become marital property.

When dividing assets and property it's often very important that your attorney trace the transfers and transformations of your property. I use experts, such as appraisers and accountants when necessary, to value your property and challenge the valuations offered by the opposing party.

I also handle complex issues that may arise regarding the sale of the marital home or other real estate, the division of retirement and investment assets and valuations of  a degree or license earned during the marriage. My Buffalo law firm has particular experience in cases involving divorces of couples with high net worth.

There are some simple measures you can take to increase your chances of achieving a fair settlement, such as making copies of financial records and making lists of the gifts and inheritances you have received. More information can be found on my Planning for Divorce page.

Careful case preparation enables me to negotiate an equitable settlement for you. If necessary, I will litigate to protect your assets and achieve a fair division of assets and debts.
