Division in marriage, division in divorce

Experts list several common causes of divorce, including communication problems, sexual infidelity, inequality in the relationship (one has to do all the housework or one has to earn all the money), disagreements over parenting and, of course, finances. Some of those listed obviously overlap with others; communication problems are perhaps the common denominator across the board.

The conflicts present in a marriage are often present in the divorce as well. If you have had disagreements over finances, the prospect of dividing property in a Clark County divorce can be a daunting one.

When the marital estate includes substantial assets such as a valuable family home, a closely held business or a professional practice, a 401(k), stock and vehicles, the division of property can be complex. How do you determine which assets will be best for you in the short- and long-term?

Part of the process of making those determinations is to meet with a financial advisor who can assess the liquidity of assets, as well as any tax implications, debts and other liabilities involved with ownership. Together, you, your family law attorney and your financial advisor can then come up with a list of property division priorities and goals.

In that way, your financial interests can be protected in negotiations and litigation. An experienced Las Vegas family law attorney wants to understand the details of your financial situation so that you can be protected at every step of the divorce process. At Kainen Law Group, we are committed to protecting your financial interests.
