Asset Valuation Attorneys In Salem

One of the most important aspects of property division in divorce is asset valuation. A thorough and accurate valuation can set the stage for a fair outcome. By contrast, inflated or diminished valuations can damage your credibility with the court and potentially result in an unbalanced division.

Because valuation is so foundational to the property division process, it is important to work with an attorney who understands how to navigate complex valuation issues. At the family law firm of Tangusso Law in Salem, our attorneys handle asset valuation with precision and experience. We work with trusted professionals such as CPAs, tax advisers, business valuation experts, pension valuation experts and appraisers to prepare strong cases.

Navigating The Challenges Of Complex Asset Division

Asset valuation generally involves determining the fair market value of the property. Depending on the type of asset, the valuation can be relatively straightforward, or it can be exceedingly complex. Assets with potentially significant future value — such as stock options and retirement accounts — pose unique challenges. Most employer-provided retirement accounts must be divided through a special court order called a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO).

Our attorneys have extensive experience navigating the hurdles associated with high-asset divorce. We understand the nuances involved in valuing high-stakes assets such as:

  • Retirement accounts and 401(k)s
  • Stocks and stock options
  • Businesses and professional practices
  • Investment accounts
  • Real estate

Our attorneys also represent business owners and professionals — and their spouses — in divorce proceedings, particularly business valuation. We are knowledgeable in business law and estate planning, areas that frequently come into play in such cases.
