Milford Attorney For Dividing Assets And Property In Divorce
Dividing property can be confusing for any couple, but for couples with high-value assets, the eye of an experienced lawyer is necessary for successful completion of complex property division while keeping tax consequences in mind. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum of wealth, Attorney Noyes will work to protect your interests.
Many types of assets can be subject to property division, including:
- Homes or other real estate property, including overseas property and multiple residences
- Personal property
- Savings accounts
- Deferred compensation plans such as retirement accounts, pensions, IRA’s and annuities
- Stock portfolios
- Intellectual property
Connecticut law is based on the principle of equitable distribution. There are several factors that judges must consider such as the length of the marriage, the amounts and sources of income, the age and health of the parties, education, employability and the cause of the divorce. People often mistakenly believe that the court will automatically divide everything equally. The best way to ensure that you are treated fairly is to have an experienced lawyer advocating for you.
Though it is difficult to accomplish, some spouses attempt to hide assets from the other side. Through a thorough discovery process, Attorney Noyes is able to uncover assets and ensure that division is fair and equitable.
