Skilled in handling asset protection and division of property in Harrisburg, Carlisle and New Bloomfield
Getting divorced is hard enough. Fighting over marital property, savings and other important possessions only adds to the stress and strain on the whole family. Working closely with a South Central PA property division attorney, whether in court in Harrisburg, Carlisle or New Bloomfield, who is specifically focused on men’s rights can make a world of difference in your experience — and your outcome. The Guy’s Attorney helps you understand your rights under Pennsylvania divorce law and navigates you firmly and successfully through the process.
Helping you achieve equitable distribution in a divorce
With more than 20 years’ experience as an asset protection attorney in Harrisburg, Carlisle and throughout South Central PA, The Guy’s Attorney handles every aspect of property division, including:
- Personal marital property, such as homes, cars, furniture, jewelry and art
- Financial marital property, such as investments and savings accounts
- Marital debts, such as credit card bills, mortgages, car loans and home equity loans
- Retirement accounts, such as Defined Benefit or Defined Contribution pensions, IRAs and 401(k) plans
In Pennsylvania, the legal term for dividing marital assets and debts is equitable distribution. Under the Commonwealth statutes, in those cases that are unable to be resolved through negotiation, the court divides your property and debts as it sees fair after hearing. But fair, or equitable, does not always mean the division will be equal.
You don’t want to lose valuable assets or have your financial future compromised by your divorce settlement. I am dedicated to protecting men’s assets during divorce and can help you achieve an agreement that is fair and, more importantly, acceptable to you.
Protecting men’s rights regarding the family home
Deciding who gets to stay in, and ultimately keep, the house is often one of the most contentious aspects of a divorce. Hollywood has traditionally shown the man trudging away, suitcases in hand, while the door slams shut behind him. But every situation is different and you may want to be the one to stay in your own house, especially if you are seeking custody of your kids.
As a dedicated South Central PA asset protection lawyer for men, The Guy’s Attorney is well-versed in handling home ownership and possession matters that make a vital difference to your quality of life. Even if you’ve already moved out, I assist you in legally documenting any agreement between you and your spouse to avoid misunderstandings going forward. And if putting the house on the market becomes necessary, I help protect your right to a fair portion of the sale.
Throughout a divorce legal process, money is ammunition. I understand this and know that you must preserve it. Be assured that as your divorce attorney, I will not promote conflict or maximize legal fees and will guide you to finalizing your divorce before you start losing money unnecessarily. I value negotiation as an important tool in resolving family law problems. But I also stand ready at all times to litigate when necessary to protect your rights and your best interests.
