Division Of Property

Property division is among the most contentious issues in any divorce. Deciding who gets what in a divorce is a complicated proposition requiring the intervention of a seasoned divorce lawyer.

Attorney Joseph A. Guillama represents clients throughout Berks and surrounding counties in divorce and division of property issues. He can help you make the most of your divorce, securing your share of assets and property acquired during your marriage.

What Is Equitable Division?

Pennsylvania is known as an "equitable distribution" state. This means that when spouses divorce, their assets are divided between them fairly, either through a settlement or by the decision of a special master and/or judge.

"Equitable" does not necessarily mean "equal," however. The length of your marriage, your contributions made to the marriage and spouses' income disparities make it entirely possible for one spouse to end up with more than the other. This is why it pays to retain Attorney Guillama who can ensure your interests are protected.

Are Your Assets Simple Or Complex?

Joe Guillama is a skilled asset evaluator who has helped clients with interests in complex business assets worth millions of dollars. He also helps clients of more modest means. In all cases, he devotes his full energy to securing accurate valuations of property, determining actual ownership of those assets and in pursuing his clients' goals regarding those assets.

These assets may include:

  • Homes
  • Cars
  • Investments
  • Bank accounts
  • Pensions and retirement benefits
  • Businesses
  • Personal property

What About A Marital Agreement?

Many smart clients inquire about preparing for divorce by using marital agreements. These agreements, which people can agree to before marriage, during marriage or while contemplating divorce can all accomplish the same goals: setting parameters for how your marital assets and debts will be apportioned as well as establishing financial arrangements for your children.

Attorney Guillama will be happy to answer any questions you might have about a prenuptial agreement, postnuptial agreement or separation agreement. We routinely draft, review and defend these documents.
