Property inherited during the marriage may or may not be part of the marital estate, depending on a variety of complex facts.
Valuations of Family Owned Businesses
The value of a business can have a significant impact on a divorce settlement. Unfortunately, there are many ways to determine the value of a business in relation to how it affects a divorce settlement, alimony, and property division.
Qualified Investment Plans
401k, IRA, and pension plans create complex issues in division when the parties are trying to weigh their current financial picture against the backdrop of future retirement.
Assessments of Premarital Assets
Many people have existing assets when they enter a marriage. These assets may or may not be part of the marital estate, depending on how they were treated before and during the marriage.
Disability Issues Involving a Child or Spouse
A disability or adverse health of a child or spouse can significantly affect a number of aspects of divorce settlement, including child support, alimony, and property division.
You must include the costs of special needs children that go beyond the day-to-day needs of a child.
The abuse of alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal substances has an impact on support, custody and visitation or timesharing.
