Divorce and Property Division in Milwaukee

Broken heart ≠ Broken bank 

An essential step in property division is determining whether each asset is marital or separate. Separate property such as inheritances, third-party gifts, and property protected by pre-nuptial agreements, are generally awarded to the owning spouse, with some exceptions. All other property — known as marital or community property — is usually divided equally.

Identifying, tracing, and valuing both marital and separate property can be difficult and complicated. Our attorneys understand how to navigate these issues with regard to all types of property interests, including:

  • The marital home
  • Other real estate
  • Inheritances and gifts
  • Retirement accounts and pensions
  • Military benefits and pensions
  • Business interests
  • Vehicles
  • Personal property
  • Debts

We consult with appraisers, tax advisers, and other experts when beneficial for protecting clients’ interests and furthering a favorable resolution. Let us take a first look at your assets. We can talk with you about what types of professionals you need to assist you in determining what property is subject to division in your divorce. We can help arm you with the information you need to make the right decisions about your property division issues.
