Property Division Lawyer In Rockville

Throughout the course of a marriage, a couple often accumulates a large amount of assets, real property and personal property. As part of the divorce process, all of those assets and items must be valued and divided between the parties.

Property division can be a very emotionally charged part of a divorce, with parties fighting over what each believes they deserve. Whether this takes place in court, or through an alternative method of resolving your divorce issues, I am a property division attorney who can help. At the Rockville office of Steven J. Gaba, I use nearly 25 years of experience when guiding clients throughout the process of dividing property and assets.

Are you wondering how property may be divided in your divorce? Contact me today and let me provide you with a straightforward evaluation of your situation.

Types Of Property That Are Subject To Division

Any property and assets that you accumulated during the time you were married up until the date of divorce are considered for division. This can include:

  • Primary homes and vacation properties
  • Other real property (either developed or undeveloped)
  • Personal property (such as cars, boats and jewelry)
  • Pensions
  • Retirement benefits, 401(k)s and IRAs
  • Stock options and other employee benefits
  • Military benefits

Divided According To Equitable Distribution Laws

It is important to me that my clients understand how property division is handled in Maryland. Our state courts follow equitable distribution guidelines for dividing marital assets and debts. This means that there is no guarantee of a 50-50 split of property, but that it is distributed between the parties in a fair and equitable manner. I can review your marital and nonmarital property to provide insights into how the courts may distribute property.
