We Find Solutions For Community Property Partitions
Deciding how to divide property should not just be a cold calculation. Our lawyers know that you have invested time, energy and love into the things you own. Homes, investments and family-owned businesses all come into play, and you deserve to be heard in that process. Our attorneys can help you negotiate your property division so you have more control over what happens to the things you really care about.
How Negotiations Benefit You
When courts decide which assets and property are allocated to a party during divorce, they do not consider factors like emotional attachment or your preferences. The court is merely attempting to balance the result. The Law firm of Hesni & Parrales, PLC, will help you negotiate for the things that are most important to you.
Often, property division can be adjusted through negotiation outside of court. For example, a court may allocate your truck to your former spouse, but you are the more frequent user. We can help you negotiate to get possession of the truck outside of court by exchanging something of value to the other party.
What Is Subject To Division?
Understanding how shared property works can be confusing. We want to help give you the answers you need. In Louisiana, you retain any property owned before marriage. Assets purchased during the marriage are likely considered marital property. Assets that are subject to division include:
- Houses and other immovable property
- Bank accounts and investments
- Cars, trucks, boats, etc.
- Retirement funds
