Property division is often one of the most complex issues in divorce. When two people have spent years or decades building assets and acquiring property, disentangling that property in a fair manner is no easy task. Simply identifying and valuing the property are often significant hurdles.
At the family law practice of Jacobson Legal Group, S.C., located in Brookfield, attorney Karyn Gimbel Youso handles property division matters with the professionalism, skill and knowledge that stem from over 20 years of experience. Attorney Youso possess the legal and financial acumen to effectively navigate complex property division and is dedicated to protecting what’s important to you.
Identifying, Tracing And Valuing Property
An integral step in property division is determining the marital or separate character of the property. Separate property such as inheritances, third-party gifts and property protected by pre-nuptial agreements are generally awarded to the owning spouse, with some exceptions. All other property — known as marital or community property — is usually divided equally.
Identifying, tracing and valuing both marital and separate property can be difficult. Our attorneys understand how to navigate these issues with regard to all types of property interests, including:
- The marital home
- Other real estate
- Inheritances and gifts
- Retirement accounts and pensions
- Military benefits and pensions
- Business interests
- Personal property
Our lawyers consult with appraisers, tax advisers and other experts when beneficial for protecting clients’ interests and furthering a favorable resolution.
