Marital Property Division And Property Valuation Issues

Property division can involve confusing scenarios involving:

  • A self-employed spouse whose income is difficult to verify
  • A co-owned or family-owned business
  • Complex retirement and stock option accounts
  • A home that is "underwater" due to the collapse in home prices
  • Negative estates where debt exceeds assets

Creative Solutions To Your Unique Property Division Challenge

Legally and procedurally, dividing marital property is similar to dividing a business partnership. Each involves the valuation of the property, an investigation of ownership interests and negotiations.

I have successfully handled the division of marital property in hundreds of divorce cases. I work with couples who just want a fair division and couples with serious concerns regarding a spouse's actual versus claimed assets. I focus my practice on creatively solving issues ranging from homes that are "upside down" to highly contested divorces involving high-value estates. When negotiations fail to deliver results, I will aggressively litigate your financial interests. For more information, please contact my office.
