Protecting Clients’ Best Interests in Divorce. Serving Gillette & Newcastle.
Perhaps the most important part of a divorce decree, excluding provisions made for children, is the division of assets. This is why many divorcing couples end up in divorce court. Each spouse has a different idea about what is a fair distribution of the property accrued during the marriage.

How the Division of Assets Is Determined
When two divorcing spouses are unable to come to a mutual agreement on the division of marital assets, litigation is likely. While we strive to help all of our clients achieve swift settlements in their divorces, we are fully prepared to represent you in divorce court.
Wyoming state law requires the judge in your case to divide assets equitably. What the judge deems “fair” may not be your own interpretation of a just division of assets, and is not necessarily equal between the two parties.
When determining the division of assets, the judge will consider several factors, including but not limited to:
- Childcare costs
- Earning potential
- Medical needs
- Length of marriage
- Liabilities and debts
- How property was acquired
- Spousal support
- Gifts or inheritances
- Where each party will be left after the divorce
