Will Your Property Division Be More Complex Than Usual?
The division of assets in divorce is a multifaceted process and can be complicated. First, we help our clients identify their assets by reviewing all financial data. Many clients do not understand the extent of their retirement benefits or company benefits. Then we evaluate those assets, perhaps with appraisals or use of forensic accountants. Often we are able to demonstrate that values are not what clients presume. After we have a proper inventory of the parties’ assets and debts, we discuss carefully how best to divide those assets.
Many divorce attorneys are not experienced in handling complicated property divisions or fail to take into account pre- and post-tax values of property. Failure to examine these issues competently can lead to unfair results in property division.
