Successful Disposition Of Complex Marital Assets
Our family lawyers are capable of valuating and determining how to handle highly valuable and complex assets, such as:
- Family homes, vacation homes, rental properties and other real estate
- Bank accounts, including overseas accounts
- An ownership stake in a business
- 401(k)s, Roth IRAs and other retirement accounts
- Investments such as stocks and bonds
- Jewelry, artwork, cars and other valuable personal property
Like most states, Minnesota uses an equitable distribution system. A divorcing couple in this state must divide their marital assets “equitably,” meaning fairly – which does not necessarily mean an exact 50-50 split. This gives you room for creative solutions that satisfy both sides, such as spousal support in exchange for giving up an ownership interest in a business.
Our attorneys will work closely with you to develop and execute a strategy for property division that respects your property rights while also minimizing costly delays and emotional turmoil. We will also advise you on which assets are nonmarital property that belong solely to you.
