Striving For Solutions As Diverse And Unique As Our Clients

Property Division And What It Means For You

When it comes to divorce, you are forced to make some difficult decisions about your future. It is normal to be overwhelmed and emotional. You need an attorney who will discuss your options and help you make the best decisions. At Hawley & Associates, LLC, we have helped clients find the light at the end of the tunnel.

Marital Property Versus Separate Property

Alabama is an equitable distribution state. This means that a judge decides what is fair, rather than cutting things right down the middle. A court usually will add up the total value of the combined estate and then give each spouse a percentage. Each case is different, and it is our job to prove you deserve what you want.

When discussing your future assets, there are a few terms that will be helpful for you to know. Marital property is considered anything you bought or received during your marriage. Separate property is any property, gifts or inheritance acquired before you were married. When looking toward the future, having the help of an experienced attorney is imperative. Together, we will come up with a strategy to protect what is most important to you.
