Equitable Division of Assets
When you’re facing a division of your marital property, it can be tough to be sure you’ll get a fair part of the assets. That’s especially stressful if you have specific assets given especially to you. Wisconsin law, however, is typically strict on property division.
When you and your spouse decide to seek a divorce, you’ll typically split your assets evenly. This division structure is meant to keep your property split as fair as possible so you and your spouse feel fairly treated. There are few exceptions to this rule.
However, that lack of exceptions may cause trouble. You and your spouse have each come into the relationship with assets and debts, so an equitable distribution may not actually feel fair. That’s why you may need to speak to a Milwaukee attorney. If you’re concerned about your rights to your marital property or personal property or how things may shake out if your assets have high value, reach out for answers about your assets.
Types of Property
While all marital assets should be divided equally, you may feel that that’s not fair. Your spouse may have debts that you weren’t part of, for example, or you may have earned or inherited significant assets on your own.
Fortunately, your divorce may not necessarily be an even split, though it should be a fair one. Property gained exclusively by one party before the marriage may be exempt from the property division. If you believe you have property that may be excluded, including the following assets, speak to a Milwaukee attorney about your case:
- Property purchased before you were married
- Gifts given to only one party
