After issues of child custody and child support, division of property and debt is often the most important part of a divorce. Both spouses want to maximize the amount of property they will receive, and in rare cases a party will go to great lengths to do so by hiding assets or taking other actions that are unfair to the other. By working with an experienced Arizona property division and real estate attorney, you can make sure that your rights are protected.
At the law office of Gary J. Frank, P.C., we have more than 30 years of experience handling property division issues in Arizona, which is a community property state. We work hard to make sure that our clients are treated fairly during a process that can sometimes be contentious. When necessary, we can employ forensic CPA’s or other experts to make sure that all the assets belonging to the marital community are identified. Our goal is to locate and value each asset and debt involved in a divorce case and help you get the fair treatment you deserve.
