Skilled Counsel For The Complexities Of Property Division
For over 25 years, at Berkowitz Cook Gondring Driskell & Drobeck, LLC, we have provided exceptional counsel and representation in family law matters. We assist our clients through what is often one of the most challenging times in their lives — both emotionally and financially.
One of the central issues in a divorce is often property division. Property division involves dividing those assets that a couple has accumulated during the marriage and usually includes:
- Personal property and belongings
- Real estate
- Vacation homes
- Business valuation and division
- Stock and stock options
- Retirement accounts
- Jewelry and art
- Cars and recreational vehicles
- Financial and investment accounts
Comprehensive Evaluation And Advice On All Assets
At our firm, our skilled lawyers will evaluate these assets, review all relevant documentation and statements, and then work with you to determine what may be an equitable division of assets. Many assets have different tax consequences and some require more effort to divide or distribute than others.
In addition, there may be a nonmarital component of these assets that requires tracing and evaluation. Nonmarital assets may include inheritance, property owned before marriage, a gift or property designated as nonmarital by a prenuptial/postnuptial agreement.
Given the complexity of property division and valuation, having an experienced team on your side can make all the difference.
