Vancouver Property Division Lawyers

Skilled & Straightforward Legal Guidance You Can Trust

While nearly every aspect of divorce can bring out the worst in a person, property division is one of the most contentious yet pivotal parts of the process. Oftentimes, neither spouse is willing to relinquish what he or she feels entitled to. Navigating these complexities requires the expertise and skill offered by our Vancouver property division lawyers of Landerholm Family Law. Our qualified legal team understands just how much is on the line, including financially and emotionally valuable assets.

The State of Washington & Equitable Distribution

Property division refers to more than just real estate and includes benefits, vehicles, funds, stock options, retirement accounts, and other personal property. Everything acquired during the course of your marriage or otherwise owned jointly is considered community property, which means it is subject to division. Any property you inherited or owned prior to the marriage qualifies as separate property.

Equitable distribution does not mean there will be an even division of all marital assets between the two parties. Instead, the courts strive to make the decision as fair as possible by assessing various factors, including but not limited to the following:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s earning capabilities
  • Each spouse’s financial status
  • Each spouse’s parenting duties, including custody and child support
  • Each spouse’s overall health
  • Spousal support, alimony, or other financial obligations
  • The degree to which a spouse contributed to the household, the other spouse’s education, earning power, etc.
