Protecting Your Property Rights During And After Divorce
If you are going through a divorce in New York, you need an experienced attorney to represent you and aggressively advocate for your financial and property interests now and in the future. Too much is at stake to simply agree to a property settlement that unduly favors the other party or threatens your financial stability. Let us help you protect your rights and lay the foundation for a brighter future.
We Have Extensive Experience In These Matters
At Johnson & Cohen, LLP, we offer strategic legal representation focused on protecting the rights and financial interests of our clients going through divorce. When dividing marital property, the court will seek an “equitable distribution of assets.” Note: an “equitable distribution” does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split of property or value. Before negotiating a property settlement, it is important to know your rights, options and potential obligations.
Our divorce lawyers have extensive experience in complex asset division involving:
- Homes and other real estate
- Family businesses
- Retirement investments
- Stocks, bonds and executive interests
- Savings accounts
- High-asset divorce
We also understand the specific property issues that are relevant for individuals going through divorce later in life.
Do You Own Separate Property?
Anyone going through divorce can be overwhelmed by the possibility of losing property or accumulating debt. It is important to protect your property interests from the outset. Depending on the circumstances, some assets may be regarded as separate property and thus not divisible in divorce. If you believe you own separate property, we can help you determine its value and provenance. We have the experience and professional resources to handle the most complex cases, and we can effectively protect your rights and long-term financial goals.
