Deciding Who Gets What
Property division can be one of the most contentious aspects of divorce. When you are angry at your spouse, it is easy to get caught up in every small detail associated with dividing your assets. At Robin Jill Schneider in Matawan, New Jersey, we help you move past the emotional aspect of your divorce so you can take a realistic approach to property division.
Equitable Distribution Of Marital Property
New Jersey is an equitable distribution state. This means that marital property — or any property that was acquired during your marriage — must be divided fairly and equitably; but an equitable division does not necessarily mean a 50-50 split.
Distribution includes the following items:
- Family-owned business
- Retirement assets, including your pension
- Marital residence
- Personal property
We have decades of experience representing individuals through the property division process. Lawyer Robin Jill Schneider has an economics background that makes her particularly well-equipped to work through property division in a way that is fair to her clients.
Focusing On What Is Important
The best approach to property distribution is often to focus on what is most important to you. Focusing on the things you truly care about can avoid wasting time and money fighting over small things that really don’t matter to you.
Maybe you really want to keep your marital home, or maybe you have a business that you want to maintain control of. No matter what matters to you, property distribution attorney Robin Jill Schneider will aggressively pursue it.
