Property Settlement

Property Settlement is the Focus of our Experienced Phoenix Family Law AttorneyHelping Maricopa County Clients Keep the Assets They Deserve After a Divorce

One of the more stressful components of dissolving a marriage is splitting assets. Since Arizona is a community property state, all of your joint assets and debts will be split evenly with your spouse after a divorce. This can be a devastating proposition for some people. If you find yourself in need of an attorney to protect your property, the law office of Paula J. Burnstein, P.C. has the knowledge and experience to help navigate through the division of assets in a property settlement.

For more than 20 years, our family law firm has been advocating for Maricopa County clients in their property settlement cases. We know how to work within the law to ensure your property division is equitable.

Protecting Your Legacy

Although Arizona is a community property state in which all assets are divided equally with your spouse after a divorce, not all of your assets may be considered joint property. If you had assets before your marriage or received gifts of property from a family member, those are considered your private assets. We understand the nuances of property settlement and will work hard to keep what’s yours with you while dividing all other joint assets. We’ll gather the proper paperwork to prove ownership in a court of law.

Dividing a Wide Range of Properties

One of the most important aspects of a property division case is establishing the worth of your assets. From that, we can determine who is entitled to what in the process of the divorce. Trust our experienced family law attorney to identify all of the aspects of your property settlement, including:

  • Houses
  • Property
  • Jewelry
  • Family businesses
  • Retirement accounts
  • Cars
  • Other investments

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Paula Burnstein is an amazing Attorney for Family Law! My case is part of my messy story. I had a daughter with a mentally ill man, that believed he was Jesus. I lived on a compound and was able to escape with her. After 8 years he came back after me to get her. Paula fought the whole brutal way, so I could protect her. It was a tough case against lies and surprises. She was brilliant with all the different judges we had. Was super reliable and always answered all my crazy questions. She was very concerned for my whole families' well fare along the way and very patient. I would call her again in a heartbeat. She helped protect and kept our family together. Thank you Paula! We will be forever grateful!

It is very difficult to maintain compassion and empathy while delivering tangible results for your client in a process that is, by its very design, oppositional, yet Paula Bernstein is the consummate professional who manages to strike just the right balance in such a trying time. She delivered an excellent outcome for me, while maintaining a level-headed, professional, yet caring, and realistic advisory role. I very much appreciated her style, restraint, effectiveness and flexibility. We communicated via email, phone, and in person, and she was always available, as needed. I enjoyed very much working with Ms. Burnstein throughout the stressful roller-coaster of my divorce, and while I obviously hope to never require her services again, I can wholeheartedly recommend her in the unfortunate event of a divorce.
