Dividing Property In Divorce

Property division is often one of the biggest contentions in divorce. If you own a business or have significant assets, divorce can be even more complex. It is important you work with a lawyer who has experience working with business owners, individuals with significant assets, and complex divorce cases.

At Magee, Zeringue & Richardson, Attorneys at Law, we have an experienced team of divorce attorneys that routinely works with business owners and high net worth individuals. We take a straightforward and hands-on approach to working with our divorce clients. Our attorneys keep you informed so you can make decisions for the future.

Community Property And Dividing Assets

In Louisiana, all property acquired during the course of the marriage is considered to be community property. If you own a business or have significant assets, there are various strategies that can be implemented in order to protect your assets and ensure that property is divided fairly. Our property division attorneys handle complex divorce cases involving division of:

  • Retirement funds
  • Retirement benefits
  • Stocks
  • Businesses
    • Including family-owned businesses

Many times complex situations require outside resources (such as accountants) for business valuation and uncovering hidden assets. We have a network of resources we can call upon, if necessary, to assist with your divorce case.
