Common property and asset division questions
- How do I know whether I have a clear picture of my spouse’s finances?
Unfortunately, you can’t always be certain. Many people become adept at hiding assets or income through business relationships or shell corporations. It is our goal to work with a team of experts when necessary to uncover assets, businesses or properties that you might not even know about. Our case strategy will be founded on thorough preparation and attention to detail.
- How are retirement accounts divided?
Dividing pensions and retirement accounts (Roth IRA, 401(k), etc.) can be complicated by several factors, including whether or not the account has fully vested. The court will examine all factors and make a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) detailing when and how the deferred compensation will be divided.
