Ensuring That Your Property Settlement Agreement Is Fair
When couples file for divorce in Virginia, they must divide marital property by a law known as equitable distribution. The circumstances and factors impacting the division of marital property are significant and, at times, complex. There is no presumption in Virginia law of a 50-50 property division; although frequently that is a typical result.
Conflicts arise when estranged spouses have different interpretations of what constitutes fair and equitable division. If you are involved in divorce proceedings, working with a seasoned attorney can ensure that the terms of your agreement support your financial interests.
Our lawyers at Kelly Byrnes & Danker, PLLC have substantial experience negotiating favorable terms for property division agreements. We will use our extensive understanding of Virginia’s marital property laws to tailor a compelling argument that addresses your unique financial circumstances.
