What Will Equitable Division Mean For You?
In Ohio, the marital estate is subject to equitable division. This means that the court will strive to divide the assets in a way that is fair to each party, which does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split. This may seem confusing, but we can show you how the law will likely apply to the division of assets such as:
- Your home and its contents
- Financial accounts
- Retirement accounts
We will also discuss the division of marital debt. It is just as important to ensure that debts are distributed equitably. Trust us to protect your rights throughout the entire property division process.
Do You Have Complex Or High-Value Assets?
We also frequently represent high net worth clients who may have additional assets, including a business or a professional practice, artwork, jewelry, vacation homes, investment property, stocks, and high-value pensions and retirement plans. We understand the need to ensure an accurate valuation of these types of assets. When appropriate, we will work with business valuators, appraisers and other experts to determine an asset’s worth.
