Some divorces involve rather straightforward identification and division of assets and debts. On the other hand, clients may not always know of all the assets or know how they can be divided between the spouses, particularly when separate property is involved. An often overlooked aspect of property division in divorce is the short- and long-term effect on a parent's ability to provide for children as well as their own well-being in later years, including retirement.

Our experienced lawyers know the "ins and outs" of the many types of property and debts and are innovative in identifying opportunities and pitfalls in the myriad potential means of dividing the marital estate. When you are unsure of the existence or extent of property and debts, we engage in diligent discovery to uncover hidden assets, obtain appraisals of assets, and when necessary call on financial experts to locate undisclosed property.

We identify and evaluate all assets and liabilities, including:

  • Separate property vs. community property
  • Marital residence, second homes, and investment properties
  • Retirement accounts, including pensions, 401(k)s, IRAs
  • Business assets, including closely held businesses, corporations, partnerships, proprietorships
  • Bank accounts, investment accounts, and mutual funds
  • Stock, stock options, and bonds
  • Bonuses and deferred compensation
  • Trust funds, offshore accounts, and other diverted income
  • Mineral interests, including oil & gas, minerals, and water rights
  • Horses, cattle and other livestock
  • Debts and liens
  • Tax liabilities
