- Interest in a closely held business
- Separate property and prenuptial agreements
We Are Committed To Your Fair Share
Equitable distribution does not always mean a 50-50 split. Alimony and child custody issues can factor into the property settlement. Assets owned by either spouse prior to marriage may or may not be subject to division. Sometimes, one spouse may take on extra debt or give up the spousal interest in a certain asset as a trade-off to retain the house or the business. There are many possible ways to divide assets and debts. We can help you find the creative combination that best fits your needs and goals.
Through negotiation and mediation, we can help you find common ground and move forward to a mutual resolution that avoids the excessive cost, delay and animosity of litigation. When it is necessary to go to court to get a ruling or to fight for your rightful share of the estate, however, Rajeh A. Saadeh is an accomplished trial lawyer who will skillfully enable you to stand your ground and navigate complex property division.
