Property Division

albequerque-adoptionRio Rancho — Farmington — Los Lunas — Santa Fe

If you anticipate property division disputes about a pending divorce, or are currently engaged in a dispute, you know that questions can arise about any type of property.

Valuable “real” property, like retirement accounts, homes, second homes, boats and cash, needs to be divided. But ownership of other property, like DVD collections, cookware and even pets, can also be disputed.

The keys to holding onto valuable property while minimizing attorney’s fees are to know your rights, and work with a skilled attorney experienced in negotiation who can expedite your case as quickly as possible.

At the Albuquerque, New Mexico, family law firm of Carpenter & Associates, we have resolved thousands of divorce-related property disputes, and can help you.

Proven Effectiveness In Protecting Your Property Rights

Firm founder and attorney Josh Carpenter will sit down with you to discuss your concerns and goals regarding marital property, and conduct a cost/benefit analysis regarding legal options. We can then chart a course for settlement, mediation or litigation, and advocate for your maximum retention of marital property.

We can work to accurately identify community versus sole or separate property, by investigating deeds, the status and bylaws of family-owned businesses, and the history of gifted property. We can ensure your spouse’s full possessions are included when dividing property. Even comp time and vacation time at work can be included as valued property in which you may own a share.
