The Role of Fault in the Division of Marital Assets

Attorney Karl Kolenich from Klie Law delves into the crucial role that fault plays in the division of marital assets during divorce proceedings. Learn about the influence of spousal fault, including actions like adultery, domestic violence, or abandonment, on the allocation of assets between spouses. Gain insights into the court’s approach, which aims for an equal division of marital assets while acknowledging the nuance of real-life situations. And understand that while fault can be a vital factor in decisions related to asset division and spousal support, it’s uncommon for the court to entirely exclude a spouse from their share of marital assets, ensuring a fair distribution. Klie Law can help make sure that your life’s work is protected.
