Division of Property
Property division can be the easiest and least costly part of a divorce, or it can be the most complex and most costly part of a divorce. Property division essentially consists of 3 steps:
Identification of all property and debts;
Characterization of all property and debts as either community property or separate property; and
Valuation of community property and community debts.

You can count on our child custody lawyers to provide honest communication about your case, and provide emotional support throughout the process.
Prenuptial or premarital agreements may appear contrary to the optimistic emotions prior to marriage, but they can be extremely valuable when marital bliss gives way to the stress and trauma of separation and divorce. Whether you have significant assets and are entering into a first marriage, or you have children from a prior relationship, it is wise to take steps to protect yourself, and your children and heirs, from what could turn into a disaster if your marriage were to end in divorce.
At Kershek & Shular, we handle all aspects of pre- and post-marital agreements, from drafting, review and modification, to litigation in Court if the agreement is challenged.
Situations may arise where a person feels threatened and needs to get immediate court protection through a temporary restraining order.
We understand the emotional challenges that come with requests for restraining orders and offer caring and compassionate counsel throughout the process. We will use our experience, knowledge and skill to resolve your problems quickly and cost-effectively in ways that meet your individualized needs.
Legal separation allows a married couple to separate for a temporary period of time while remaining legally married. Couple's choose this time to assess their future together. If you are seeking some time away from your spouse to determine if you wish to continue your marriage then a legal separation may be the arrangement you need.
We understand that separation can be difficult. While legally separating from your spouse may not resolve all your concerns, it can alleviate some of the stress you would otherwise face in a divorce. This is because separation leaves certain options open that are no longer available after a divorce. At Kershek & Shular, we will help you determine if a legal separation is the right option for you.
