Seeking an Equitable Distribution of Your Marital Property
At Johnson Bigelbach Law, PLLC, we understand you may be dealing with a lot of fears. You may be worried that your spouse could take everything you have worked hard to achieve. Or maybe you are losing sleep fearing your divorce could cause an irreparable rift in your family business or could force you to re-enter the workforce after putting your career on hold to raise your children. No matter where you find yourself, we will take every measure to protect your financial interests.
As a first step, we will work with you to understand the extent of your marital estate. This can be a highly complicated process, especially for marriages that have lasted a substantial amount of time. Individual assets can get blurred over time as separate property becomes commingled together. In complex property divisions, we can consult real estate appraisers, forensic accountants and actuaries to determine the value of your marital property, which may include:
- Family home, time shares, cabins or second homes
- Rental property or family businesses
- 401(k) plans, pensions, Roth IRA or other retirement accounts
- Stocks, bonds and other savings
We can also consult business valuation experts, if you are a business owner going through a divorce. Our job is to determine what property is considered part of your marital estate and the value of your joint assets and debts. Depending on how your finances were handled, this can be a highly complicated process.
We know the right experts to consult to trace any hidden assets and minimize any potential tax implications. We are highly experienced divorce lawyers committed to negotiating a resolution that makes sense. Since some of your property cannot be split directly down the middle, we will work to make sure you obtain an equal value of the marital estate. We want to make sure you walk away with a fair share of your marital property.
