The Importance Of Having Legal Representation During Complex Property Division Matters
The division of a marital estate has the potential to engender deep conflict between the parties. This is especially true when substantial property or assets are part of the equation. When complex marital estates need to be divided, you need to do everything within your power to ensure that your best interests are well-protected by retaining an attorney with vast experience in difficult and complex issues of assets.
Assets acquired during marriage, under Maryland Law, may be divided based upon the overall equities of the situation, with certain exceptions such as
- Gifts from third parties
- Property or assets owned prior to marriage
- Assets the parties agree will not be distributed
Determining what should be included in the division of property is key to achieving your goals. A skilled and experienced attorney can fight to help you include or remove a particular asset from the division.
If there was a prenuptial or post-marital agreement, it can have a major impact on the division of property.
What Are The Marital Assets Subject To Division?
Complex marital estates can include such assets as
- Investment properties
- Vacation homes
- Retirement accounts
A major issue in many complex property division cases is the hiding of assets. If you believe that your spouse has hidden assets, our firm's lawyers are skilled at conducting investigations that uncover hidden assets and property, which may include the involvement of a forensic accountant or other financial professionals.
