Separating Private Property from Marital Property Attorney Spring Lake, NJ
The first step that needs to be taken in any divorce, particularly important for high asset divorces, is to divide marital property from separate property. Because the extent and value of a high net worth couple’s assets are greater than the average couple’s financial holdings, it becomes that much more important to carefully review all of the relevant facts and financial information related to that couple’s assets in order to properly determine which assets belong to the marriage, and which are privately owned. If you contributed (be it financially or in some other manner) to a marital asset, it is critical that that asset is divided equitably, and conversely, if your privately owned asset remained separate from the marriage’s finances, it is important that that asset remains separate when it comes to equitable distribution.
Attorney Peter J. Bronzino has both the legal knowledge and real world experience that you need to properly separate marital assets from private assets in a high net worth divorce. By methodically reviewing all of the documents and evidence related to a couple’s finances, including any existing prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, Peter Bronzino can ensure that marital assets are declared as such, and separate assets remain separate.
Valuing and Dividing Complex Marital Assets Lawyer Point Pleasant, NJ
Once the full extent of the marital property has been determined, the process of equitably distributing those assets begins. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state when it comes to asset division, meaning assets need to be divided in a “fair” manner. The idea that any asset division agreement be “fair”, but not necessarily equal, is what gives an experienced Ocean County property division attorney a great deal of room to maneuver, and secure a favorable settlement for their clients.
Sometimes, an individual will settle for a slightly smaller overall portion of the marital assets in order to retain possession of specific assets which are important to them. Other times, asset division can be used to leverage a more favorable alimony agreement, trading certain assets for either an increased, or decreased, alimony payment. Other times, you may not care which assets you retain, and simply wish to secure the best property division settlement you can.
Whatever your specific needs or concerns may be, Bronzino Law Firm is ready to listen to your concerns, and help you to secure the asset division agreement you need and deserve. Our office has experience valuing and dividing many complex marital assets, including:
