Separate Property

When assets were acquired prior to marriage, or during marriage by gift or inheritance, these assets are generally protected from division by the family law court.  However, this can be a daunting task because the burden of proof is very high to show an asset is your separate property.  Many times there is little proof of how an asset was acquired, so this burden can seem insurmountable.

The Tadlock Law Office has experience in obtaining the evidence needed, when possible, to prevent separate property from being divided by a court.
