An Experienced Clarksville Property Division Lawyer Representing You
The formal separation of a couple in a divorce includes the legal division of property. When money and assets become a point of contention, a mutual split can become a bitter battle over who owns what. At the Law Office of Edward E. DeWerff, we take a realistic and fact-based approach in protecting the property that you own and finding common ground on the division of marital assets.
A Tennessee Divorce Lawyer Helping You Through the Property Division Process
Simply put, the property you owned outright prior to your marriage will go to you. Dividing marital property is more complex and often creates friction between the most cooperative of couples. The goal is not for an equal 50/50 split, but a division that is both fair and equitable.
At the Law Office of Edward E. DeWerff, we help clients make clear-headed decisions during emotional times. Securing certain property to get back at your spouse ignores the fact that you may not be able to afford it. The spouse who can afford the house can secure it only if an equitable asset is provided to the other. If no one can agree or no one can afford the house, it will be sold with the proceeds divided between the divorcing couple.
