Making Proper Valuation

Our attorney employs experts, when necessary, to help gain an accurate account of assets and debt. We gain a global sense of property and then move into determining which assets comprise marital income. As with all other areas of divorce, we encourage openness and communication as a means of resolving matters quickly and amicably. When that cannot or does not happen, our attorneys are knowledgeable enough to use the legal process to discover the marriage's assets.

Our attorney also realizes that professional degrees and certifications, college degrees, and certain other accreditations, acquired during the marriage, have an ascertainable value, and are marital property. Also, the business that you or your spouse owns, or has an interest in, may likewise be marital property, and subject to equitable distribution.

Expert witnesses can have a significant impact on the outcome of a divorce. Our law firm works with qualified experts, and our attorneys are well versed in the methods utilized by various expert specialties. This allows us an opportunity to offer opinion testimony to the Court and to rebut the opinions of opposing experts.
