Reclaiming personal assets after a divorce may be simple

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. When you feel the desire to get married, you want to be all in. You want to state to the world that this is the person for you and you are for them. You are in for their successes and their failures, and you may be willing to stake your assets to protect them. But what if it’s time to consider your assets to protect yourself? Divorce is never something that people think about when they are sure about marriage, which is why it is often difficult to separate out

Not sure what to do with the family home? Decide, or a judge will

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. When you decided to divorce your spouse, you hadn’t thought about how you were doing to split your home. That’s where most of your money is held, and by selling your home, you think you’d get enough to put a down payment on your own. Your spouse has said that they would like to remain in the home, but they don’t have the money to buy you out. That has put you in a tough position because you think selling is the best option.

You can seek more than half your property, but is it fair?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Thursday, May 28, 2020. You and your spouse have kept most of your assets separate.

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Wednesday, May 27, 2020. No one is thinking about it when they say their vows, but roughly half of people who get married end up getting divorced.

Can’t divide your assets? A judge will do it for you

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Friday, May 1, 2020. Divorce is tricky for even the calmest couples, because there can be a large amount of money or a great number of assets at stake. Since Missouri is an equitable distribution state, judges can decide how to divide your property for you in a way that they believe is fair based on your contributions to your marriage. To avoid having a total stranger divide your assets, it’s a good idea to work with your spouse to divide your property instead. Some of the assets

What should you know about credit and divorce?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Friday, April 17, 2020. While divorcing, one of the things you and your spouse will need to deal with is your marital estate. Your estate will need to be divided. When you do that, you should keep in mind that changing the arrangement of your accounts can have an impact on your credit.
