Dividing marital property in a fair and mutually accepted manner is often one of the most difficult aspects of divorce. Emotions tend to run high, making it tough to accurately split assets, as well as debts. In this situation, it can be helpful to consult an experienced family law attorney who can research and assign accurate value to all shared property.

At the law firm of Harvey & Battey, P.A., in Beaufort, South Carolina, our lawyers have been helping divorcing clients protect what belongs to them since 1922. With comprehensive analysis and decades of experience, our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to handle even the most complex property division issues. 


Assets acquired during the marriage may be considered marital property. Property owned before the marriage or obtained through inheritance during the marriage is generally considered exempt. In the midst of divorce, disputes frequently arise regarding what is marital property and what is not.

Our attorneys will classify and value all marital property and debt in accordance with the equitable distribution of property rule, taking into account fault for the divorce and the earning potential of both parties. Our lawyers can assist you with all types of property division issues involving:

  • Real estate
  • Vehicles
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Bank accounts
  • Retirement accounts
  • Pensions
  • Businesses
  • Jewelry

Our attorneys will work hard to protect what is rightfully yours. When appropriate, we will consult with experts, such as tax specialists, to help look out for your bottom line. For example, we will ensure only money added to your retirement account during the marriage is subject to division. Our goal is to safeguard your financial health, helping you move on to the next chapter of your life with financial confidence.
