Protecting Your Marital Property Rights

People generally get married because of their feelings for each other, but marriage is also a kind of legal contract, particularly with regard to marital property. When two spouses divorce, the law calls for an equitable division of marital assets and debts.

Note: "equitable" does not always mean "equal," and your secure financial future could be at stake if your marital property rights are not protected.

The Importance Of Accurately Valuing Marital Assets

An accurate valuation of property is crucial to a fair division. Unfortunately, sometimes in a contentious divorce, one spouse will try to hide assets in order to keep their value out of the settlement. Our lawyers have the knowledge and resources to locate and value various kinds of marital property, including:

  • Commercial and residential real estate
  • Retirement plans such as 401(k)s and IRAs
  • Stock options, restricted stock and other employee benefits
  • Intellectual property such as trademarks and copyrights
  • Insurance policies
  • Vehicles
  • Credits from travel reward programs
  • Art collections
  • Retained corporate earnings

In our divorce and family law practice, we focus on resolving conflict while also preparing each case for possible litigation. In terms of property division, that means enlisting the help of forensic accountants, business valuators and tax specialists when necessary. We are also experienced in tracing the origins of separate property, which often consists of non-divisible assets such as gifts, inheritances and property owned prior to the marriage.
