Fair Property Division During A Divorce
Divorce may be one of the most difficult events in a person’s life. It is not just emotionally draining, but the regulations, paperwork and decisions involved can be long and arduous. With legal guidance, however, you may be able to better navigate dividing your property during your marital dissolution.
While it can be difficult to quantify how each spouse contributed to the relationship, here at James E. Bruce, Jr., Attorney at Law, our firm can help you come to an agreement as efficiently as possible.
Making Sure Your Contributions Count
Kentucky is an equitable division state, meaning that property acquired during the marriage will be divided according to what is fair for each spouse. This doesn’t necessarily mean that property will be divided equally down the middle, or that one spouse will retain all the assets they personally acquired during the marriage. After all, a marriage is a partnership, this means that non-monetary contributions are still accounted for.
If you stayed home to raise the children instead of working, that is still a valuable contribution, just as financial investments are considered contributions. For this reason, you deserve your fair share of the marital properties in the event of a dissolution.
