Division of Property Archives

Computer forensics uncover aspects affecting equitable division

Many Cranberry Township residents have woken up one day and realized that a relationship is over. For married couples, divorce may be the only legitimate option at this point. An equitable division of assets can be achieved for both parties involved in the property division process.

Division of assets may include separate and marital property

Topics popular for those early in the divorce stage often include questions related to property division, child custody and the like. Depending on where you or your spouse stand on these issues, it can be fairly easy to come to a decision or fairly complicated. Division of assets can sometimes feel like an all-of-nothing game, but there is a way to do it equitably.

Pennsylvania recognizes equitable division of property in divorce

When thinking about ending one's marriage by filing for divorce, there are many facets of a family's life to take into consideration. For instances, married parents often first think of how divorce might affect their children and their custody situation. Most parents have concerns about finances or assets when making a change in marital status. All of these questions can be addressed prior to, or during, the divorce process.

Can an ex-spouse take any of their spouse's trust fund?

Trust funds are a way for some parents and grandparents to pass assets to their children in a controlled manner. A trust fund is a gift that is meant for a loved one and it can be a significant amount of money. But, can an ex-spouse receive any of a trust fund that is meant for the other spouse due to marital property?

How are retirement benefits divided in a divorce?

For many Cranberry Township residents, retirement accounts are one of the largest assets a person has besides their marital home. The division of property is one of the touchiest areas of a divorce, and this can include retirement accounts. So, how are retirement accounts handled in a divorce situation?

What does the court consider when dividing marital property?

When a Pennsylvania couple gets a divorce, one of the biggest issues that must be settled is how to divide assets, decide who will get the marital home and other aspects of how to transfer property. That which was accrued during the marriage will frequently be in dispute. To have a baseline as to how this is settled, there is a general rule for the equitable division of this property that the spouses should understand as the process moves forward. When the property is divided, marital misconduct is not considered. The court will decide what is fair after the relevant factors have been considered.

What factors are relevant when determining spousal support?

In a Pennsylvania divorce, decisions on how to divide assets, who will get the marital home, the method by which to transfer property, and the discovery of hidden assets all might come to the forefront as the process moves forward. However, when looking at certain complex matters, it is easy to forget the basic tenets of a case. The amount of support and how it is determined from the supporting spouse to the receiving spouse can frequently be obscured. Knowing the relevant factors when the amount of support - also known as alimony - is decided upon is a major factor in any case.
