Family Law


Adams County Asset Valuation Lawyer

When couples divorce, division of property is often one of the most highly contested matters they experience. The assets that once supported one household must now support two, and making this transition can be difficult. At Tolison & Williams, Attorneys at Law, LLC, I use years of experience and an in-depth knowledge of the law to help you achieve the best possible results in property division matters.

The Law On Division Of Property

Colorado is an "equitable distribution" state. This means that under Colorado law, assets, wages and earnings acquired during the marriage are divided fairly between both spouses. There are a few exceptions to this:

  • Property owned by one spouse before the marriage
  • Property one spouse received as a gift
  • Property one spouse received through a will or inheritance

These types of property are generally considered to be "separate property" — not "marital property." Colorado property division law says that marital property, or property acquired during the marriage, must be divided equitably when couples divorce. Property that is found to be separate property can usually be kept by one spouse. The law also divides debts acquired during the marriage.

At Tolison & Williams, Attorneys at Law, LLC, I can guide you through these complex divorce issues. I am a Colorado attorney focused on protecting your interests in matters of asset valuation and property division. Paying close attention to detail, I make sure that you get the positive results you depend on to move forward with your life.

My dedication and focus are the same — even if your assets are complex. I work with highly qualified professionals who can accurately appraise your assets so that your interests are protected during your divorce. By working with experts such as actuaries, appraisers and certified forensic accountants, I can assist couples in the fair division of:

  • Real estate
  • Collections, like car collections or art

Asset division in divorce is a complex area of law. To be successful, your attorney must have knowledge of accounting, asset valuation, tax matters and other financial issues. You attorney must draw on experience with family law judges to understand how the courts tend to treat various items of property.
