Planning Ahead for Property Division in DivorceDivorcing couples face a major transformation as the resources that formerly supported one household must be divided to support two. If you are facing divorce, a divorce financial planner can help you make smart decisions about your finances before, during and after a divorce.
We can help with all aspects of property division:
- Identifying marital property: Courts aim to divide marital property and debts equitably. To do this, they must first determine which property is “marital property” and which is not. Marital property is property that was acquired during the marriage, with a few exceptions such as gifts that were given only to one spouse, inheritance or things that were bought with assets obtained before the marriage.
- Dividing marital property and debts: We sometimes work with knowledgeable experts who can help our clients assess their property and debts. When necessary, we can call upon our reliable network of forensic accountants, financial analysts, business valuation specialists and others who can provide testimony in support of our clients’ cases. These experts help us identify separate property and trace its transformation into marital property, which is critical in cases where there has been contribution or commingling of funds.
