Kentucky Lawyer Helping Clients With Property Division

Of all matters involved in a divorce, property division is among the most likely to become contentious and antagonistic. When pushed, most divorcing parties will back down from a fight when they know the best interests of the children are at stake, but this approach can change drastically when money and assets are involved.

Whether or not you are facing a divorce in which significant assets are involved, it is important to work with a lawyer who has experience handling property division issues. Attorney Eric Grinnell and our entire team at The Grinnell Firm, PSC, represent clients in property division and other divorce-related issues in Lexington and Florence, Kentucky.

Division Of Assets ∙ Protecting Your Interests

One of the first steps in asset division involves separating marital property from nonmarital property. Longer marriages with more diversified assets can complicate this part of the process. Savings accounts, pensions, business ownership interests, inheritances and other varied assets have a tendency to become commingled, making it difficult to untangle and determine ownership percentages, especially when factoring in interest rates and other complexities.

Once we have separated the marital from the nonmarital property, it is important to valuate the marital property. Collectibles, real property, jewelry and other related items can present unique challenges in valuation, yet attributing value properly is critical in equitably dividing assets in divorce or separation.

At The Grinnell Firm, PSC, we have experience and knowledge handling these matters, and we are connected with a network of experts whom we can call upon when needed to make sure we properly valuate and divide assets. This includes qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs) for dividing retirement benefits and other complex assets. Attorney Eric Grinnell spent nearly a decade serving with the U.S. Navy, which gives him unique insight into helping clients in military divorces. We will work with you personally to protect your financial interests.
