West Virginia Equitable Distribution Of Marital Property Lawyers
West Virginia is an equitable distribution state, meaning that your marital property is generally divided equally between both parties in a divorce. In some cases, it may be appropriate to do an unequal distribution, like where one spouse has wasted marital assets.
Non-marital or separate property assets are not divided with your spouse. We will help you protect those separate, non-marital assets, including gifts, inheritance or property accumulated before your marriage or after your date of separation. We can assist you in protecting inheritances, gifts or other separate property, and ensure that you are compensated equally for all marital property acquired during the marriage.
We are experienced in working with experts in property division, including forensic accountants to recover hidden or improperly withdrawn funds.
Experienced In Asset Recovery
If you believe that your spouse has absconded with a portion of your assets, we are experienced in asset recovery and can assist you in the collection of what you are owed.
Our attorneys will help you protect your family home, ensure that a proper business valuation occurs, and protect your fair share of retirement accounts and savings.
Our senior attorney, Lyne Ranson, is a former white collar crime prosecutor from the U.S. attorney’s office and is experienced in piecing together financial losses and fraud in marital asset division.
