Steve and Renee were great to work with! Very professional and realistic. Gave no false expectations or predictions. They communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again if ever needed! Thank you, Steve and your team!


For my family law case, Steve Smith had a very strong presence and was dominant in the courtroom. The manner in which he carries out cases is something you see in the movies. He was really animated and passionate about my case. His military background is a big asset, and he really helped me out. I would highly recommend him.


We hired Leah M. Baldacci for a family law case and she was so extremely helpful and got me through my case. She’s very professional and takes the time to listen to her clients. She’s a wonderful advocate and a fantastic attorney. If you’re looking for a great attorney, I recommend Leah. Thank you so much for your legal help.

Anonymous Client

I’ve hired Steve for two cases, and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with.


I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court, but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained, and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children.

Bangor Property Division Lawyers

Bangor Property Division Lawyers

One necessary aspect of nearly every divorce case in Maine is the division of marital property. This is often a contentious issue in a divorce, as each spouse wants to maintain as much of their shared property as possible. By working with skilled Bangor property division lawyers, you can help ensure your debts, assets, personal property, and more are distributed fairly. Do not wait until the conflict begins to seek guidance.

Dividing Property In Maine

The property and asset division process can be complicated, especially if you and your spouse are not on the same page. You want strong legal guidance from the start to ensure that you receive your fair share of the property. 

First, you must determine what is marital or separate property. Each spouse keeps their separate property, while they must divide marital property equitably. This means there must be a fair division given the circumstances – not necessarily a 50/50 division as in certain other states.

For an equitable division, you must consider:

  • The value of your property (which might require appraisals)
  • Whether one spouse is staying in the family home
  • Whether one or both spouses want to maintain their businesses
  • Any spousal support awards involved in the divorce
  • Other financial circumstances of the marriage
  • Whether one spouse wasted or concealed assets

The more complex your financial situation is, the more likely you will have a battle when it comes to property division. Either way, make sure you have the right attorney on your side. 

Options For Property Division Orders

Whether you have relatively simple or high-net-worth finances and property, spouses might not agree on all division issues. Our legal team helps negotiate to reach out-of-court resolutions whenever possible, and this requires a thorough evaluation of all financial disclosures and other account information. 

If you cannot reach an agreement out of court, our skilled litigators never hesitate to represent your interests before a family law judge. If there is a chance that your property division issues will require litigation, you want our trial lawyers handling the case.
