Anchorage Complex Property Division Lawyer
One of the most critical issues in any divorce is property division. The outcome of a divorce can have a significant impact on your financial security.
If you are going through a divorce, the first step to ensure the protection of your rights is to retain an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney. An attorney can properly advise you of your rights, help you understand how a court may view complex property division issues and ensure that you understand your options.
I am Dorothea G. Aguero, an Alaska family law attorney committed to providing the quality legal representation and highly personalized legal service you require. I have been representing clients in divorce and family law matters for more than 25 years. I have experience in cases involving complex property division issues, including:
- Characterization of property (marital vs. nonmarital)
- Commingling of marital and nonmarital property
- Valuation of a family-owned business
- Valuation of real estate, including remote properties
- Division of retirement accounts
- Division of investment accounts
While Alaska law calls for an equitable division of marital property, the courts have significant discretion to determine what constitutes an equitable division under the facts of a particular case. People who are able to cooperatively reach agreements regarding property division and other matters in their divorce are better able to determine the terms of their divorce and can avoid the time, stress and cost of protracted litigation.
For this reason, I encourage my clients to consider the collaborative process in their divorce. A collaborative law divorce often enables spouses to minimize the emotional and financial costs of divorce. Visit my section on collaborative law to learn more. For individuals who do not feel that a collaborative law divorce is right for them, I also have considerable experience in contested divorce proceedings.
