The division of marital property and debts is one of the most important aspects of a divorce case. After all, your future financial position will depend on the property settlement you receive, at least in the near term.
At Ball Morse Lowe, PLLC, we work diligently to protect our clients' rights and interests during the divorce process. Our attorneys take care to collect all relevant information to develop proactive legal strategies designed to obtain a fair and equitable division of marital assets and debts.
Division Of Marital Assets In Oklahoma
Oklahoma law draws a sharp distinction between marital assets and debts (those acquired during the marriage, excluding inheritances and certain gifts) and separate assets (those acquired before the marriage). Marital assets and debts are to be divided on an equitable, but not necessarily equal, basis. While this may sound simple, in practice there can be many complicating factors. For example, disputes can arise regarding the valuation of assets, the transformation of separate property into marital property and other issues.
Our lawyers have the knowledge and resources needed to identify and value marital property. We will work hard to protect your rights and interests at all stages of the divorce process.
Litigation Involving Complex Property Division Disputes
While we always seek to achieve positive results for clients in an efficient manner, in some cases litigation is necessary. Our law firm has extensive trial experience in divorce cases involving complex property issues. When necessary, we can call upon experts such as appraisers, business valuation specialists, forensic accountants and tax accountants. These professionals can provide critical insights into property and valuation issues, and they will be prepared to defend their findings at trial.
As with other types of civil litigation, complex property division cases require thorough preparation and vigorous advocacy. The attorneys of Ball Morse Lowe, PLLC, will apply their knowledge and trial skills to protect your rights and achieve a fair property settlement.
