Attorney Assisting You With Equitable Distribution in Richmond, Virginia

To divide property and assets, the state of Virginia relies on a process called equitable distribution. Virginia does not automatically divide property equally, but instead takes a long list of factors into consideration.

When you're preparing for a divorce, contact Carol A. N. Breit, Attorney at Law, in Richmond, Virginia, to ensure that your interests are protected throughout this process.

Protect Your Interests: Understand the Law

Whether you will be fighting over the equitable distribution of property in court or will be intending to resolve these issues through mutual agreement, it's important to have a complete understanding of the legal background of equitable distribution to ensure that your interests are protected. A court will consider the full spectrum of both monetary and nonmonetary marital contributions and any agreement should also consider these factors.

Based upon your individual circumstances, I can provide you with a general idea of how the court is likely to evaluate your assets, so that you can make informed decisions about resolving your divorce.

All marital property assets are potentially available for division under the principles of equitable distribution, including:

  • Business interests
  • Intellectual property
  • Mutual funds

  • Retirement accounts
  • Stocks
