Contact us if achieving equitable property division, often without unnecessary, costly litigation, is a priority for you.
Targeting Full Asset Disclosure and Fair Property Settlements
When marital relationships break down, doubt and lack of trust are common — both as a cause and consequence. This becomes a major issue in some higher-asset, potentially complex divorce cases. One spouse may have reason to suspect the other is hiding assets or failing to disclose various sources of income. In other situations, in-depth analysis may be necessary to value structured compensation and other valuable employee benefits.
Uncovering and Tracking Assets — Evaluating Complex Benefits — Bringing Truth to Light
We handle many divorce cases involving self-employed individuals, business owners, people who operate professional practices and high-level executives who receive complex, multi-tiered compensation. We work closely with highly skilled and competent CPAs and a range of other financial professionals to deal effectively with:
- Accurately establishing income from self-employment, business operations and other “non-W2” sources
- Identifying all assets, including investment accounts, that may be marital property, subject to equitable division
- Tracing assets and income from a variety of sources, including those that may not have been reported on any tax returns
- Investigating claims that assets are part of an inheritance or otherwise qualify as separate, rather than marital, property
- Identifying and valuing benefits sometimes provided to long-term employees and executives, such as stock options and deferred compensation
- Determining the validity and/or impact of a prenuptial or antenuptial agreement
