Understanding Your Property Rights In Divorce
When couples divorce, they must divide their assets and debts. In Wisconsin, everything a married couple acquires before and during the marriage is considered divisible property, which is presumed to be divided equally – even if one spouse earned or spent more of the money.
If you are contemplating or going through a divorce in Wisconsin, you are likely – and understandably – concerned about your assets. At Burbach & Stansbury S.C., our Milwaukee divorce attorneys are well-versed in protecting all assets. We can help you navigate the divorce process and work to protect your interests and your future.
We Identify Opportunities To Keep And Protect Your Property
You can protect your property as much as possible from the asset division process if:
- You have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that defines property ownership or division
- You have assets that were gifts or inheritance from a third party, and you kept these assets separate from the marital estate
- The circumstances of your case call for a variation from the standard rules, such as if you contributed a significant share of property to the marriage.
We can help you optimize your estate in divorce no matter how complicated or simple the assets may be. Our lawyers have experience with dividing and protecting businesses, and we work with you to develop sophisticated asset division strategies.
We believe that property division in a divorce is more than simply dividing assets. Rather, it is a financial plan that needs to protect you now and in the future. Navigating the divorce process can be complex and emotionally demanding. Regardless of your particular situation, it is wise to speak with an experienced divorce attorney who can help you understand your options and protect your rights and finances. We can help you find creative solutions that are tailored to your unique situation.
