Division of Financial Assets in Divorce

Philadelphia Division of Assets

Separation from a spouse or partner is a difficult enough process. What to do about the financial assets brought into a union and those accumulated during the relationship are important considerations when seeking a divorce or separation.

A Sensible Approach to Financial Asset Division

In a Pennsylvania divorce, financial asset division is addressed in a similar fashion as other marital property division. Assets can be split or shared equally according to Pennsylvania’s divorce code. As an experienced attorney, I can provide you with the current, accurate information regarding the issues involved in financial asset division, including:

  • Pensions, 401Ks and IRAs
  • Stock portfolios, options and other investment assets
  • Deferred compensation and annuities
  • Business ownership
  • Hidden assets

Whether your divorce is resolved in court, by mediation or through negotiation and settlement, I can help you address all the important financial considerations allowed by law, without penalties or other tax consequence.

When a valid premarital agreement exists, the issue of financial asset division can involve complex issues of determining how a marriage may have contributed to any financial gain.
