Marital property must be divided equitably under Washington, DC law
In Washington, DC, marital property must be divided equitably, but that doesn’t mean the assets will necessarily be split 50/50. The process begins with determining the assets that are marital property and those that are separate property.
You should retain a knowledgeable divorce attorney to ensure your interests are protected during this process. Douglas & Boykin’s divorce lawyers can help you evaluate your rights to everyday assets such as household items, photos and clothing. They also protect major assets such as:
- Your primary home
- Vacation homes
- Business interests
- Pension plans
- Retirement accounts
- Stocks and other investments
- Rental properties
While most people focus on dividing the assets, marital debt must also be divided. Douglas & Boykin ensures that you do not end up with an unfair share of the marital debt, including mortgages, car loans and credit card debt.
If you and your spouse own complex assets, Douglas & Boykin can help you by hiring experts who can determine the appropriate value of the property involved. Whether it is a family business or collectible, it is important to obtain an accurate valuation.
