Seeking What’s Rightfully Yours in Divorce

Property division paperworkWhen you and your spouse are going through a divorce or dissolution, you may be concerned about how property division is handled in Columbus. You may have questions or misconceptions about what property is subject to division and what is exempt, or what you can expect to receive in case of divorce.

At Nina Scopetti Attorney at Law, we are highly knowledgeable in all areas of divorce, including property division. Our practiced attorney can ensure you are fully aware of your rights and the most effective steps you can take to protect your property in Columbus, OH.

Marital vs Non-Marital Property

Marital property is typically divided equally. Marital property consists primarily of assets and debts acquired during the marriage, regardless of which spouse holds the title to the property.

Non-marital property is property which is usually not subject to division , and includes property owned prior to the marriage, items which were acquired as a gift or inheritance. This separate property can include real estate, pensions, interest acquired on separate property, property excluded specifically through a marital agreement, inheritance, and gifts given to only one spouse.

Characterizing, tracing, and valuing property can be quite complex, but our Columbus property division attorney can help identify separate and marital property before the division process begins.

When decisions are made about property division, a few considerations are kept in mind, including:

  • Whether the property is marital or separate, or a combination of both
  • Whether the spouse claiming a separate property interest can “trace” the property
  • Which party will be paying the debts
  • Whether the property can be divided or whether it should be sold
  • Which party will maintain the real estate
