Protecting Your Assets Is Important

Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, can help you protect your assets and reach the best possible outcomes regarding:

  • Personal property: Including vehicles and furniture
  • Bank accounts and investments: Stocks, bonds and more
  • Real estate: Including your primary residence, vacation home or rental properties
  • Professional practices, small businesses and family businesses: Assistance in navigating the challenges of business valuation and the division of complex business assets
  • Retirement accounts and pensions: Including military pensions and benefits and 401(k) assets; when 401(k)s or other retirement accounts are subject to a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) by a court, the firm can help facilitate proper establishment of the QDRO as well

Some assets clearly belong to both parties. For example, they might have purchased a house together and put both of their names on the title and 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. Shawn can help you make sense of these matters.
