Salem Property Division Attorney
Dividing assets during divorce is often an arduous process. Oregon is an equitable distribution state which means that property acquired during the marriage is subject to equitable division. As an experienced divorce lawyer, I understand how confusing property division can be, and I take steps to assert my clients’ interests. For years, clients in Salem have turned to me, Daniel J. Lounsbury.
Marion County Asset Division Lawyer
Divorce involves more than just dividing property. You also need to decide who will be responsible for any debts that you share. I will take all the necessary steps to protect your interests regarding both property and liabilities.
Any assets acquired during the marriage may be subject to division. I assist clients with division of assets such as:
- Real estate, including the marital home
- Retirement accounts
You and your former spouse may be able to agree on how to divide your assets. If not, the court will decide. My approach to the law is to encourage clients to choose an amicable settlement whenever possible, and I will do everything I can to facilitate that. However, a settlement is not always possible. When litigation is necessary, I do not hesitate to take forceful action in court.
For high-asset clients, the process is even more complex. An attorney who lacks experience with high-asset divorce may cost you an opportunity to claim an asset that you value. As a Salem property division lawyer, I have represented many high-asset clients.
