Advocating For A Fair Property Division Settlement
When your marriage ends, dividing your hard-earned assets and property can add insult to injury. If your property division case enters the court, the judge is empowered to decide who will take any given piece of marital property. Indiana has subtle marital property laws that do not regard the name on the title. In the court’s eyes, any marital property belongs to both spouses and should be fairly divided.
Our attorneys at Leonard, Hammond, Thoma & Terrill, P.C., understand the complexities of Indiana’s marital property laws. We have been representing families since 1952 through complex litigation, negotiation and mediation. We understand the frustration you may face during your divorce and aim to relieve your stress.
If you work with us, we can help you determine:
- Separate property, usually inherited or purchased before the marriage
- Proof of separate property and assets
- Valuation of marital property and assets
- Your division options, such as selling property to liquefy assets
Your Team For Complex Assets
A skilled attorney is essential to properly value and divide complex assets. A high-asset divorce that has multiple accounts, properties or parties involved may require complex litigation or skilled negotiation. If you or your spouse own a business, there are also other important legal matters to consider.
Though we aim for amicable mediation to efficiently reach a favorable outcome, our lawyers are skilled litigators who are not afraid to bring your case to court. When the other side does not play fair, we will protect your best interests.
