Skillfully And Equitably Dividing Complex Assets
Dividing marital property can be one of the most contentious aspects of divorce. When a couple has accumulated significant assets, how to divide them up in a divorce can become complicated and drawn out. I am Tucker M. Katz, Attorney at Dietze & Davis, P.C., a family law attorney in Boulder who is well-versed in Colorado’s equitable distribution laws and who has worked successfully with clients to resolve simple and complex property division issues incident to a divorce.
I am also familiar with the family law judges who preside in courts along the Front Range and understand how each tends to treat property issues. This is an important factor given the great amount of discretion judges have in deciding property division issues. I will advocate aggressively to protect the assets that are important to you while minimizing the tax implications. In every case, I aim to put my clients in the best possible financial situation to begin their post-divorce lives.
Valuing Your Complex Holdings
It is important to have a qualified marital law attorney who understands the nuances of property division laws in order to protect your rights. Assets that require valuation in Colorado divorces include:
- Primary residences
- Second homes
- Investment real estate
- Business property
It’s also necessary to obtain full valuation of bank assets, businesses, pension plans, retirement accounts, stock holdings and collectibles. Assets that you brought into your marriage, gifts and any inherited assets may be deemed separate property and not subject to property division in a divorce arrangement.
Highly Detail-Oriented With A Roster Of Experts
In cases involving entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals, licensed professionals and others, it may be difficult to pin down annual income or net worth. I am a huge proponent of spreadsheet summaries, and I use them extensively to help manage and explain complex property division matters. I have also developed a network of highly regarded appraisers, forensic accountants, business valuation specialists and other professionals who can establish a person’s income or the true value of complex assets for property division purposes.
