The property division process is one of the most important parts of your divorce proceeding. The manner in which property, money and debts are divided can have a lasting impact on your financial health.
Missouri is an equitable division state. Everything acquired during the marriage is subject to division, unless you have a Premarital Agreement that states otherwise. This includes homes and cars that you made payments on during the marriage, credit card debts, loans, most retirement benefits, stocks, collectibles and other property. The court will consider the assets and make an effort to equitably, but not necessarily equally, divide assets, debt and property.
At Flesner Wentzel, we thoroughly investigate your and your spouse’s properties, bank accounts and other financial assets. Once we have identified all of the marital assets, we work to make sure our clients leave their marriages with a fair share of assets.
