WEST CHESTER, PA, October 03, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The divorce attorneys at West Chester law firm Carosella & Associates are skilled negotiators who help clients understand the nuances surrounding the division of marital assets. Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state, which means marital asset division is based on what the court determines to be fair under the circumstances, not just a straight 50/50 split. Having a divorce lawyer help negotiate a fair divorce settlement agreement helps to ensure a client's rights and interests are protected.
"Our family law team handles all aspects of divorce, including spousal support and alimony, child custody and support, and division of marital assets," says Vincent Carosella, founding Partner. "Coming to a consensus before a client even sees the inside of a courtroom is one of the easiest ways to make divorce an expedient, equitable process. When disputes must be litigated in court, our attorneys provide top-notch legal representation our clients can trust. We understand that issues surrounding divorce are challenging, and our team is committed to protecting the financial and emotional well-being of clients and their families."
There are many different factors that are taken into account when marital assets are divided. Some key issues to consider are proper identification of all assets, how much they are worth, and determining which properties are marital assets or non-marital assets. It is also important to discern who is responsible for debts and how they will be split to come to an equitable agreement. The family law attorneys at Carosella & Associates strongly recommend that clients consider pre-nuptial agreements before entering into a marriage, as it can make the splitting of marital assets much more straightforward in the event of a divorce.
