Financial Experts Within Ocean County Divorce Proceedings
One of the most contentious and complex disputes during a New Jersey divorce is that of equitable distribution. Assets which are commingled, were acquired during a marriage, or were contributed to by both spouses may be eligible for division during a divorce. What makes this area of divorce law so complex is the concept of equity, and the degree to which each party is entitled to marital assets. Due to these complicating factors, your Ocean County divorce attorney may enlist financial experts including:
- Forensic Accountants
- Certified Public Accountants (CPAs)
- Brokers, Financial Analysts, or other investment experts
- Tax professionals
- Members of the Institute of Certified Divorce Financial Analysts (CFDA)
- Much more
It is also important to understand that financial experts may be used to help determine outcomes of other divorce disputes including child support and/or alimony. This is yet another reason why preparing for divorce is a crucial step. Experts can only use the information which they are given, and proper financial documentation can make a world of difference.
Family and Childcare Experts In Monmouth County Divorce

Other Expert Witnesses: Toms River Divorce Attorney
Your Toms River divorce lawyer will call upon expert witnesses based on the circumstances surrounding your divorce. While financial and family witnesses are the most common, there are several other experts who may have a role within your divorce proceedings, including:
Real Estate Experts – dividing your owned real estate can be one of the most difficult aspects of equitable distribution. In addition to having a high financial value, many times properties have a personal value as well. Real estate experts such as real estate agents and professional appraisers can be used to appraise or sell your owned property.
Business industry experts – for those who own businesses, valuating those properties can be a difficult undertaking. There are several methods to value an owned business including the market value method, income method, and asset vs. liability method. However, there is no substitute for working with an industry expert.
