Equitable Distribution of Assets and Debts in Indiana

In the state of Indiana, marital property and debts (those obtained during the course of the marriage, except for inheritances and certain gifts) are divided on an equitable basis. The word equitable is key. It means that property and debts will not necessarily be divided equally; in fact, circumstances can result in assets and debts being divided on a quite unequal basis. The choice of an attorney is therefore very important.

Robert A. Plantz has a thorough understanding of the property division process. He will use his skills to identify separate and marital property, value it and achieve a fair property settlement for you.

Mr. Plantz's experience in residential real estate can address issues regarding the disposition of the family home and, if necessary, the reassignment of the mortgage.
