The Benefit of an Experienced Attorney During Asset Division in a Divorce

There are several difficult aspects of divorce, but the good news is that you do not have to go through it alone. An attorney who is a seasoned expert and master negotiator can assist each step of the way, especially when the time comes for the division of assets. Securing such a professional on your side can make a significant difference in the outcome of one’s asset retention. 

In the area of Hunterdon County NJ divorce lawyer Stephen Williams has 25 years of experience serving the legal needs of the residents. Unlike some firms where there is less personalization, Stephen Williams makes himself available to his clients through the entire progression of the case. The personal relationship this creates allows attorney Stephen Williams to customize his legal representation to best meet your needs within the case. 

There are a multitude of considerations when determining asset division. Attempting to handle asset division pro se or by representing yourself can be a critical error in judgment due to the fact that you may not even realize the legal criteria that may affect which assets will be awarded to whom or the factors that are considered when delegating those assets. 

Conversely, a Hunterdon County NJ divorce lawyer such as Attorney Stephen Williams is well-educated in the intricate details of delegation criteria for the division of assets. Williams can effectively separate marital property from items owned by one spouse prior to marriage and can even differentiate gifts given solely to one individual. This can even assist in the protection of inheritance. After these items are determined, several facts must then be considered. These include, but are not limited to, the length of the marriage, the established standard of living during the marriage, and the contribution of one party to the other spouse’s education or earning capabilities. 

It is clear to see that the division of assets can be a complex exercise influenced by a wide range of factors. An experienced attorney who is keenly aware of the potential factors involved in the division of assets can make a tremendous difference. When dividing up the assets during a divorce a favorable outcome is far more likely when your cherished possessions are left up to a savvy attorney who knows the law and how best to protect your interests.
