What You Need To Know About Asset Division
When going through a divorce, you will face numerous decisions. Even if you and your spouse are on relatively good terms, dividing your assets can cause a serious headache. I am an attorney at Heydman Law, LLC, and have worked with clients throughout Kansas since 1988. I take the time to explain the myriad options available to you, given your circumstances, and help you decide how to best move forward.
What Does Equitable Distribution Mean For Me?
Kansas is an equitable distribution state. This means that when a judge divides your assets, they will do so in a way that is fair to both parties. It is important to know that this does not mean it will be split down the middle. One party may receive more than the other, depending on the specific situation. There are a number of factors that they will take into consideration. The duration of your marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse and the health of each party are just a few things they will look at.
Having an experienced attorney during this time is crucial. Many people think they can handle a divorce on their own. In reality, they may end up with far less than they deserve. I sit down with each client and give them the individualized attention they deserve. In answering your questions, we can work together to find a solution that will work best for you. I will always represent your best interests. Whether it is negotiating on your behalf or going to court, I will advocate on your behalf.
