Division of Assets:

One of the most trying legal issues that must be resolved during a divorce is the division of assets. The division of assets determines who will get which items of value after a couple decides they want to dissolve their marriage. The division of assets can be extremely easy to decide, but many times, it can evoke mixed emotions between spouses. 

Issues can arise when a couple cannot come to a mutual agreement regarding the division of their assets, which is where the Law Offices of Allan E. Perry can help. As an experienced family law attorney, Allan E. Perry can assist you in determining an equitable and fair division of your assets, and will aggressively fight for your rights to those assets to obtain a result that you will be happy with in the long run. 

Property division is often decided by, but not limited to:

  • Length of Marriage
  • Property Value During Marriage
  • Any Taxes/Debts Owed
  • Spousal Age, Mental and Physical Health
  • Each Spouses Ability to Earn an Income and Education
  • Each Spouses Financial Liabilities Including Financial Needs
  • Future Ability to Achieve Higher Income Levels


Prenuptial (Pre-Martial) & Post-Nuptial (Post-Marital) Agreements:

A prenuptial agreement, often referred to as a premarital agreement or “prenup” is a legally binding document that basically handles the financial and emotional consequences of a marriage if either spouse ever makes the decision to divorce. A prenuptial agreement is a great and effective method to protect one’s personal and business’ assets and finances for the future.

Our firm can help arrange the wishes of both you and your spouse in a prenuptial agreement regarding, but not limited to any of the following issues:

  • Marital Property
  • Marital Debt
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support/Alimony
  • Business Division

In addition to prenuptial agreements, we can also assist you and your spouse by preparing post-nuptial agreements if you or your spouse ever decided that it is necessary to prepare an agreement during the course of your marriage.
