Division Of Assets
Through negotiation, mediation and arbitration, our lawyers are committed to helping you resolve your family law matters in a cost-effective and efficient manner. If your case requires litigation, our seasoned trial attorneys are fully prepared to represent you before the Master in Divorce or in the courtroom.
In Pennsylvania, marital assets and debts are divided using equitable distribution. However, this does not always mean that the division is a 50/50 split. The courts consider 14 different factors when determining asset division, including:
- Each spouses’ age
- Length of the marriage
- Each spouses’ earning potential
- Each spouses’ health
- Standard of living during the marriage
Division of assets is not an exact science and it can be unpredictable. That’s why it is critical to have an experienced attorney representing you. Our lawyers will help you understand your rights and options as well as a range of expected outcomes. We will thoroughly evaluate all of your assets, including property, bank accounts, investments and more. We also can explore tax considerations that may place you in a more favorable financial position.
If you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement about division of assets, a court-appointed attorney called the Master in Divorce will hear your case. As a former Master in Divorce in Lehigh County, our firm’s founder Mary J. B. Eidelman has a unique perspective into how the courts handle these cases. She will review your situation and offer knowledgeable recommendations. She will also represent you at any conferences or hearings with the Master in Divorce.
