Dividing your assets and debts in a divorce does not need to be a battle. Since 1982, Cook & Associates has been helping clients throughout western Pennsylvania obtain favorable property division arrangements while maintaining an amicable relationship with their spouse. We strive to help couples work together to divide their property and assets out of court. Even in difficult cases, our attorneys remain strong negotiators without resorting to hostility.
If you live in the Pittsburgh area and need legal guidance regarding division of property or other family law issues, contact Cook & Associates. We are here to help you resolve this chapter of your life so you can move on to the next one.
Pennsylvania is an equitable division state, which means that the court must distribute all marital property fairly, but not necessarily equally. This leaves a lot of room for interpretation regarding fair distribution. Our lawyers can help you determine the arrangement that would best suit you, then strategically work to obtain it.
When a couple’s property division battle becomes contentious, their relationship suffers. If you and your partner have children, this is the last thing that your family needs. We try to negotiate with both parties to achieve a satisfactory arrangement. That said, we also strongly advocate for your best interests, working to obtain the results you desire. Our trial attorneys can also take your case to court if it cannot be settled privately.
At Cook & Associates, our experienced family law attorneys can also act as mediators to nonclients. This can help both parties reach a mutually satisfactory solution. However, we also understand that these options are not best for every couple. If your spouse refuses to act fairly, our experienced trial lawyers will steadfastly advocate for you in court.
