Experienced Lawyers Handling Complicated Property Division

DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC represents individuals throughout the Phoenix area who are going through the divorce process. Our firm has the capacity to handle complicated property, asset and debt division matters.

Arizona is a community property state, which means there is a presumption that all marital property, assets and debt should be split equitably between the parties. Homes, bank accounts, 401(k)s, pension plans and other items will all be included in the equitable split. However, it is not always that simple. There are many issues that can create obstacles in dividing the property and debts.

One obstacle involves property classification. Is the property properly classified as separate property or marital property subject to division? This issue can be further complicated when non-marital property is commingled with marital property.

Another potential obstacle involves property valuation. Our attorneys can help you identify any potential valuation issues and assist you in obtaining the property you desire. For example, if a family business is involved, we can obtain an accurate business valuation that takes into account both value and debt.

Please note, we also handle division of property through mediation and collaborative law.

If you were prudent enough to have a prenuptial agreement (or antenuptial or partnership agreement) that outlines the distribution of assets and debts, then you have taken appropriate steps to reduce the likelihood of a lengthy and costly legal battle. In addition, a separation agreement can also address and resolve all potential property division issues.
