Marital Property

Tulsa Marital Property Lawyer

Marital property generally includes all assets and debts accumulated during your marriage, regardless of who earned it, or whose name is on the title or deed. Retirement plan assets, savings, houses, businesses, cars, motorcycles and credit card debt are examples of marital property. Marital property is subject to equitable division between you and your spouse. Equitable division may or may not be 50-50.

Separate property includes assets you owned before your marriage, or received as a gift or inheritance during your marriage. Separate property is yours to keep in divorce. However, it is up to you to prove that an asset is separate property. There are things you can do that may change separate property into marital property such as depositing money, or stock in a joint account, or refinancing a house and adding your spouse's name to the deed.

Tiffany Graves Law has successfully resolved numerous asset divisions.  We will work with you to determine what property of yours is separate and that all marital property is in fact distributed fairly.
