Protecting Your Assets After Divorce
Any property that either spouse acquired during the marriage, which does not fall under one of the separate property or hybrid property exceptions, is considered to be marital property. Marital property is considered to be owned by both spouses, and must be divided "equitably" between the parties. Virginia's divorce statutes call for an "equitable" distribution of marital assets and property between each party. This does not mean the courts split the property down the middle or 50/50. Rather, they try to divide the assets up in a way that is fair to each party.
Even when a divorce is uncontested, you may find yourself in a complex dispute involving property interests. Our equitable distribution of assets lawyers assist clients through the process of inventory and valuation of assets and identification of marital assets. They work aggressively to help ensure that you receive the best possible result in your divorce case.

- Vacation homes
- Cars, motorcycles and boats
- Pensions, 401(k)s, IRAs and other retirement accounts
