Have Strong Representation In Your Divorce
Missouri is an equitable distribution state. This means that in the event of divorce your assets are divided fairly, but not necessarily equally (50/50). Before the court is able to divide your property it has to determine which property belongs to the marriage, which property belongs to each person individually, and the quantity of each.
In the state of Missouri, the court must presume that all property acquired during marriage is marital property, regardless of what title says. To keep property from being divided, you will have to show the court that it is nonmarital. Usually this involves proving when and how you received it, or as in the rental property example, that the gift was intended for you alone. In these situations it can be extremely beneficial to have an experienced Kansas City divorce lawyer who knows exactly what documents to prepare and who can tell you what to expect.
Debt acquired during the marriage will also be divided. Debt is regarded same as any other property. The court must characterize the debt as either marital or non-marital based on when it was acquired, who acquired it, and how it was used before the final settlement for equal responsibility. With such life impacting decisions being made, be sure to have an experienced divorce lawyer represent you in your settlement to ensure your future well being.
