A contentious issue that often arises during a divorce is the division of property. Our attorneys understand the importance of an equitable property division and are experienced in non-marital property disputes.

Marital property is defined as property and assets acquired during the marriage. That property can be divided by agreement of the parties, or as the court deems equitable. It is important to know your legal rights and obligations regarding an equitable property division

Minnesota law allows each spouse to retain his/her non-marital property upon divorce. However, accomplishing a non-marital determination of certain property can be difficult and require detailed tracing to prove that particular assets are truly non-marital in nature. The attorneys at McCarten Law Firm are experienced in contested non-marital property cases and can guide you through the legal realities of your case and explain your options.
