Divorce Involving Pre-Marital Assets Broward and Palm Beach Counties
The marital and family law attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin have represented over 1,000 individuals going through a divorce.
It is presumed that the Husband and Wife split every marital asset and liability accumulated during the marriage equally, 50/50. But what happens if the parties are in dispute over whether an asset or liability was accumulated during the marriage? Depending on the asset or liability, this can be a focal point of the divorce proceedings.
Many of our cases concern whether asset(s) should be considered pre-marital or marital and thus subject to division during a divorce. The determination of whether an asset should be divided in a divorce oftentimes arises in cases involving real estate, businesses, assets purchased from protected accounts, such as trusts or inheritance, or pre-nuptial agreements. Co-mingling of assets (i.e. putting your spouse on the deed of your home or opening a joint account) can transform a pre-marital asset into a marital asset.
Our divorce attorneys are knowledgeable of the law and have extensive experience handling these matters. We will not let your spouse bully you into entering into an agreement that does not protect what is rightfully yours.
Sean L. Collin, the head of the marital and family law division, has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration in addition to his Juris Doctor. This provides him an edge in advocating and analyzing complicated financial issues, such as co-mingling of assets, business and real estate evaluations (appreciation and depreciation), the sale of privately held companies, business and real estate appraisals, tax implications and high-net-worth distributions, including retirement accounts. In determining whether an asset is pre-martial or a hybrid of pre-marital and marital, timing is everything. You can count on the marital and family law attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin to follow the money trail to ensure you are protected. We’re aggressive, so you don’t have to be.
