How Will Divorce Affect My Property?

Managing Divorce While Protecting Your Assets

Though you are making the right choice for your family, divorce can be an incredibly stressful process. As you are trying to focus on your loved ones, endless questions may come up that you must settle. Child custody and support, as well as alimony are common issues. Another huge issue is marital property. You have worked hard to guard your assets and have stewarded them wisely. How will divorce affect your assets?

At Suisman Shapiro Attorneys-at-Law, our team of dedicated family law attorneys has experience handling division of marital property, and can answer all your questions.

There Are Many Possibilities In Dividing Your Property

Connecticut is an equitable distribution state, which means that during your divorce, a judge will decide what is a fair division of property, considering things like each parents' income and other financial factors.

However, not all property is marital. If a property was purchased by you prior to marriage, or if it was a gift given only to you, then it is your property and will remain as such. Having a skilled family law attorney on your side is crucial for this part of the process: it is likely that your soon-to-be ex-partner's attorney will argue that more property is marital property in order to get them a larger share.
