Allocation of Debt
Prince William County Secured Debt Divorce Attorneys
Just as both spouses in a divorce have certain rights, they both carry certain responsibilities. In the property division proceeding, it is more than just the marital assets that are distributed. Marital debts must also be addressed. There are specific rules in place with regard to how debts are allocated. Be sure that you seek the counsel of a qualified attorney who can help you understand your rights.

Fighting for Your Rights in Debt Allocation Matters
As with the marital assets, marital debts are required to be distributed in an equitable manner under Virginia law. As a general rule, if one spouse receives an asset in the property settlement, the debt associated with that asset goes with it. We will be there to advise you about your rights and options, as well as any advantages or drawbacks associated with owning a particular piece of property.
At every step in the process, we will examine which spouse incurred the debt and how the funds were used. We will build the best possible case on your behalf and work to secure a settlement that puts you and your children in the best possible position after the divorce has been finalized.
