Denver Colorado Marital Asset Division Attorney

Working to ensure favorable asset division in complex divorces.

One of the focal points of any divorce proceeding is how the marital assets will be divided. Marital assets, or marital property, will generally include the assets and debts spouses have acquired during marriage. Property separate from the marital property can include assets gained prior to marriage or gifts and inheritances acquired before or during the marriage. Determining what property will be considered marital and what will be considered separate can be a complicated process. Once it is completed, the court will proceed in dividing the marital property between the two parties.
