Forms of Complex or High-Stakes Assets

Not all community property subject to division in a divorce will be as straightforward as a shared bank account or the family home. Many couples are surprised to find that they possess complex assets requiring a careful legal approach. Before you are surprised by the complexity of your own divorce, call (916) 634-0067 to get our Granite Bay asset division attorneys on your side.

Three examples of complex assets in divorce are:

  • Businesses: Married couples who own a business together are confronted with the delicate task of deciding how it should be divided, if at all, when divorcing. One spouse may want sole ownership in exchange for lesser amounts of other community property, both spouses may want to jointly own the business as partners, and so forth. The larger the company or corporation in question, the more difficult it will be to fairly consider it for asset division. A business valuation is also necessary regardless of business size.
  • Unique finances: Atypical sources of income can be a challenge to divide, especially if shared effort has gone into making those sources profitable. You will need to consider stock shares, investment opportunities, retirement accounts, royalties, etc.
  • Real estate: Appraising real estate is necessary to decide how it should be divided. A home of significant value can be considered a complex asset. However, most real estate property considered to be complex involves commercial properties, like an office complex or even a building used for hospitality.
