Divorces that involve complex property division involving high assets, business ownership, professional licenses and other complex financial matters have the potential to be high conflict and high profile.

In California, property acquired during the marriage is considered community property, and should be divided between spouses accordingly. Factors such as the increase in value or real estate and retirement accounts will also be included, with the exception of gifts and inheritances.

The attorneys at Boyd Law work with leading experts in economics, forensic accounting, business valuation and other fields to ensure that your case is handled properly.

Family court judges are required to distribute marital assets between spouses, including property acquired by either or both spouses during the marriage. What constitutes fair division of property is largely up the judge’s discretion, and subject to a list of legal issues the judge must consider.
In divorces involving spouses of high income and net worth, who own business assets, or properties, several problems must be resolved, especially when contesting spouses each claim an asset as their own and not subject to community property laws. Determining value and worth of assets is another complex issue the attorneys at Boyd Law can help with. As well as full and accurate disclosure of income and earnings. Prenuptial agreements can further complicate matters as well as taxes, liquidations, spousal support, custody and child support.
