Guiding you through the complex, emotional legal issues facing you and your family.

Guiding You Through Complex Divorce Issues

Some divorce proceedings are more complicated than others. When a couple has significant assets, matters involving property division can become complex and contentious. That is why it is essential to seek help from a lawyer who understands how to effectively resolve issues that arise during a high-asset divorce.

At Hawthorne & Vesper, PLLC, our attorneys are dedicated to helping ensure any property division is carried out fairly and equitably.

We Can Help With The Division Of All Types Of Assets

We handle property division issues concerning all types of assets, including:

  • Business interests
  • Stock options
  • Real estate
  • Artwork
  • Pensions and retirement benefits

The most complicated part of property division for divorcing couples with significant assets is the identification and valuation of the property. In general, property that was acquired before the marriage is not subject to division. However, an asset may effectively become marital property over the course of the marriage. It is important to ensure that these assets are properly divided. It is also crucial to get a proper valuation of a marital asset. This can be difficult to ascertain when it comes to things such as artwork or a family-owned business. If necessary, we work with forensic accountants and other experts to help determine which assets should be divided and how much they are worth for property division purposes.
