Pennsylvania Equitable Distribution

Every state has its own laws governing how marital property is distributed. Pennsylvania is an equitable distribution state, meaning that property acquired during a marriage will be distributed equitably between the parties. It is important to remember that "equitable" means fair, but not always equal. Call our office to discuss what is important to protect and what may be relinquished for tactical reasons.

Protect Your Share Of Marital Assets

Marital assets are distributed based on a variety of facts and circumstances. It is important to consult with an attorney who can assist you in collecting the necessary documentation, uncover any hidden assets and stake your claim to a fair share of marital assets. There is no presumption that property will be distributed 50/50, so you must work with an experienced advocate who can protect your interests and ensure that property is divided fairly.

We are experienced with equitable distribution and cases involving:

  • Real estate: family homes, vacation homes, business property
  • Family-owned businesses
  • IRAs, retirement accounts
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Inheritance
  • Marital debts: credit card debt, medical debt
  • Military or veterans benefits
  • Personal items: antiques, collectibles, jewelry, furniture
  • Motor vehicles: cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats

Equitable Distribution And Spousal Support

Alimony or spousal support issues are resolved in conjunction with the equitable distribution of assets. If you are concerned about your financial well-being after a divorce, we will protect your rights and help you restore economic security. Whether you are seeking to collect alimony or you are concerned about unreasonable obligations, we can help.

We also help divorcing clients revise their estate plans, including wills, name changes and powers of attorney.
