Filing for divorce often means more than just ending a marriage. It can also mean separating the joint life you’ve built with your spouse, thereby forcing you to splitting everything. While the idea is to get through the property division process with a fair and equitable agreement, the reality is that many arguments can spark during this time, causing disputes to arise and emotions to run high.

At the Law Office of Paul Petrillo, our experienced legal team understands that a contested divorce can be a lengthy process, which may mean living your life without a resolution for a significant period of time. At our law firm, our goal is to capture the needs of our clients, helping them move forward with the divorce process.

In some cases, divorcing spouses are able to arrive at satisfactory agreements outside of court. For these matters, our legal team works diligently to iron out all the details, ensuring that everything is addressed in as fair and as favorably as possible. Even when a divorcing couple isn’t able to work through all of their issues outside of court, our law firm focuses on the matters in disagreement and develops a strong strategy for litigation.

While property division can be resolved both outside and in court, clear classification of assets is critical to the outcome Certain assets can clearly be categorized as marital or separate property, but others can be more challenging to classify. This is where our law firm can be of value. We assist our clients with both the designation and valuation of assets with an eye on protecting our clients’ financial interests.
