Assisting You With Division Of Property in Schenectady
Unless you have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement in place, the division of that property could be one of the greatest challenges you face in your divorce. Most couples accumulate a variety of assets during their marriage, and the process of separating them fairly can be simple or complex depending on your unique situation.
Higgins, Roberts & Suprunowicz, P.C., has been serving the divorce needs of New York’s Capital region over 180 years, and our trusted family law attorneys will work to ensure that your assets are divided fairly during the divorce process. We will ensure that each piece of property is accounted for and that you have the support you need to negotiate the division of your assets and provide for your future.
Accounting For All Assets When Negotiating Divorce
One of the most important steps during your divorce is creating a full inventory of your property and the value of that property. While many types of assets like your home and car may be easy to identify, a variety of other assets will also be considered. This includes:
- Businesses and other professional partnerships
- Retirement savings including IRAs and 401(k)s, especially if you are divorcing later in life
- Stock options and portfolios
- Social Security benefits
While New York is an equitable division state, that doesn’t necessarily mean a strictly equal split. The goal is to create a division that is fair and addresses both what you and your spouse have brought to the marriage and what you will need in the future. The aid of an attorney is one of your best assets in helping to ensure that the division of your property is fair.

We are dedicated to helping you achieve a solution that is fair to you and ensures that your future is protected. We will work toward the best possible outcome through negotiation, and we are willing to enter arbitration, mediation or litigation if necessary.
