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.

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

- 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.
