One of the most sensitive areas in a complex asset divorce is the determination of what assets are individually owned and what are not; for example, a business owned by one party before the marriage 18 years ago, but both parties worked in the business during the marriage causing it to expand. We call in financial experts to trace the value of the business at the time of the marriage and determine the change in value since. There can be a number of types of assets which can become the subject of dispute such as:
- A second home or other real estate
- Retirement accounts and pension plans
- Deferred compensation
- Employee stock ownership plan
- Profit sharing plans
- Closely held businesses
- Inheritances or gifts which have since commingled with marital assets
- Property with tax consequences
