Augusta Property Division Lawyer

Thomson Marital Assets Division Attorney

In many cases, one of the most challenging aspects of divorce is the division of assets and debts. This property division often means lifestyle adjustments, changes in living situations and compromises on various issues.

Some assets clearly belong to both parties, who may have purchased, for example, a house together and put both of their names on the title and the mortgage. Other assets may seem to belong to only one spouse, such as a piece of jewelry that was inherited from a relative years before the marriage, while still others may fall into a disputed gray area. We can help you make sense of these matters.
