Most real estate acquired by either or both of you during your marriage is considered part of the marital estate and is subject to division in divorce. If one of you owned a property prior to your marriage, or inherited real estate during your marriage, any increase in the value of that property is also considered marital property. For many people, a house is the major piece of real estate in question. For others, there may be several different properties that need to undergo valuation so each party can get his or her share.

At McGuane and Hogan, P.C., we have helped with the valuation and division of many different property types in the Denver metro area and all over Colorado, including:

  • Houses
  • Second homes
  • Rental properties
  • Time shares
  • Ranch land
  • Commercial buildings
  • Subdivisions
  • Mines or mining claims
  • Properties with mineral rights
  • Airplane hangars
  • Property affected by endangered species concerns or environmental issues

We can also handle property division for properties in other states and other countries.

Our lawyers have extensive experience dealing with unusual properties or properties that are subject to unusual circumstances. We also understand how these properties are frequently treated by family law judges. Our partners wrote the book on Colorado family law. We will advise you on the best way for you and your spouse to divide any real estate you own.

How Will My Real Estate Be Affected By Divorce

If the two of you must divide the property between you, the simplest method may be to sell the property. Our attorneys can help you calculate things like appreciation or depreciation adjustments to anticipate what the actual value you receive will be, after taxes. Our attorneys can also discuss the pros and cons of selling in connection with the divorce or keeping the real estate and selling later.

It is also possible that one of you may have a different piece of marital property that either of you would prefer to keep. This leaves some negotiating room to keep your real estate property intact.

We will sit down with you to discuss your goals for property division and determine how we can meet as many of those goals as possible. We are excellent negotiators and are frequently able to work with you, your spouse and his or her attorney to find a settlement you can both agree to. Our goal is to complete your property division with a minimum of stress and maximum benefit to you. If the two of you cannot reach an agreement, we are skilled trial lawyers and are prepared to take your case to court.
