Division of Marital Property, Assets and Debt During Divorce
Disputes over property division can make the process of divorce very contentious. An experienced divorce attorney can advise you of your rights and help you understand what to expect in your divorce. By explaining your rights, an attorney can help you take an informed and assertive position in property division negotiations.
At the law firm of Shindler, Anderson, Goplerud & Weese P.C., we believe in providing clients with candid advice. We give clients straight answers to their questions and advise clients of their rights and responsibilities in a divorce. By giving clients a realistic perspective of what a judge may rule in a particular divorce case, we help clients devise and pursue property objectives that protect their rights, while minimizing the chance of protracted litigation.
Aggressively Defending Your Financial Rights
In the state of Iowa, all marital property is subject to equitable division. Almost all property acquired during marriage is marital property. Equitable division simply means fair division — it does not necessarily mean an equal 50-50 division.
Since it is difficult to precisely define what is fair in any given divorce, it is particularly important that you have an experienced divorce lawyer who understands how to effectively negotiate on your behalf and frame the issues at trial if your divorce is not resolved by mutual agreement.
