Pennsylvania Attorney Committed to Fair & Equitable Solutions
Allentown divorce lawyer seeks to minimize conflict
In equitable distribution states such as Pennsylvania, assets acquired and liabilities incurred during the marriage, individually by one spouse or jointly by both, are considered marital property, subject to equitable distribution. Marital property is divided fairly and equitably, but not necessarily equally, through equitable distribution. Baikow Legal, LLC has the necessary knowledge and familiarity with Pennsylvania’s property division laws to ensure that you will obtain the fairest settlement.
Emphasizing experience and meticulous preparation
Before the actual distribution of the property, your lawyer will need to determine what property will be distributed and the value of said property. Equitable distribution states classify property as either “marital property,” assets acquired during the marriage and available for distribution, or “separate property,” assets acquired prior to the marriage and exempt from division. I have the necessary familiarity with Pennsylvania’s equitable distribution laws to distinguish property as either marital property or separate property. I also have the skill to trace the commingling of separate assets with marital assets, prevent unfair distribution and ensure that no assets or debts are overlooked.
Marital property may include anything you have that could be considered an asset, such as:
- Stocks and bonds
- Bank accounts
- Investment accounts
- Marital home and vacation homes
- Home furnishings
- Retirement funds
- Pensions and annuities
Tailoring non-adversarial legal solutions
I strive to convert an otherwise stressful and contentious matter into a positive resolution. My experience has equipped me to handle negotiation and mediation when appropriate, affording you greater control over the outcome. But even if you and your ex-spouse are unable to initially agree on an equitable marital division, I act as a fair and impartial mediator to help you both move forward after the divorce.
