Property accumulated during the course of one’s marriage is marital property. Marital property may include such things as bank accounts, real property, automobiles, household furnishings, and retirement funds. In a divorce, the court will determine which property is marital property and how the marital property should be divided.
At Brown, Goldstein & Levy, we work with our clients to determine the existence of property acquired during the marriage and its value so that when marital property is divided, they receive their fair share.
Each situation is different. For some clients the task of dividing their property is simple. For others, it may be more difficult if it involves a closely held business, a professional practice, investments, stock options, etc.
