Skilled Attorneys Provide Strong Property Division Representation In Divorce

One of the most frustrating aspects of a divorce involves property division. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state, which means that everything – assets, property, debt – is subject to division. You must accurately determine which items are separate and which are marital in an effort to figure out how they should be divided. This can be complicated without the help of an experienced attorney.

At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., based in West Caldwell, our divorce attorneys have decades of experience helping individuals as they navigate property division. Our legal team will carefully and thoroughly examine your marital history, taking an inventory of the assets, property, debt and other items of significance that you have accrued. Divorce often involves transforming one household into two individual financial structures as the divorcing parties seek to move on with a secure financial future in mind.

We understand how emotionally complex this can be, and we are determined to offer tailored guidance and aggressive advocacy in even the most complex of cases. We will aggressively litigate on behalf of a client to help ensure our client’s rights and interests are protected.

Asset And Debt Division May Often Include Detailed Complexity

When complex asset portfolios, or businesses or professional interests are at stake, our lawyers have deep experience in representing clients through northern New Jersey in resolving property division disputes. Dividing assets may require a deep dive into the financial complexities of a portfolio of assets. When trusts are involved in an asset structure, your legal team must know the relevant laws regarding trusts (which may have been formed in other states –like Delaware, South Dakota or other states with strong laws protecting the corpus of a trust).

An experienced divorce litigator understands these issues, potential offsets for resolving asset disputes, and the ability to fight to protect the best interests of each client. That is what the legal team at Cipriano Law Offices, P.C. offers.

High-Asset Property Division Involves More Than Simply Distinguishing Between Separate And Marital Property

In a high-asset divorce, determining the value of an asset may require a detailed valuation system that can involve a battle of expert appraisers. Similarly, the value of an asset may involve a deeper analysis than only determining a market price. For example, understanding the cost-basis of each asset in a complex asset structure may be helpful in understanding the ultimate net value if the asset were liquidated today. Business interests vary widely, and our lawyers understand the nuances of business valuation processes.

The legal team of family law litigators at Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., has the experience and financial acumen to understand the bigger picture involved in a property and asset structure. Dividing property equitably does not necessarily mean that the split will be 50/50. Our formidable approach to resolving property division disputes, combined with the detailed knowledge of our attorneys regarding assets, finances and New Jersey property division law are hallmarks of our divorce and property division law firm.
