Benefits of Having a Property Division Attorney

There are a number of factors that can complicate property division proceedings:

  • Emotional attachment to particular items
  • Not all properties can be easily split – such as investments, real estate, and other
  • Distinguishing separate property from community property can be difficult

The Advantages of Mediation

If you and your ex-spouse feel like you can work out an agreement, mediation for the division of your property could be a viable option. A third-party mediator can help both parties see the big picture of their assets and debts and provide understanding to how the division of the property is fair. As Albuquerque family law attorneys, Cortez & Hoskovec, LLC can provide understanding and focused mediation services.
