Preserving Your Assets, Property, And Financial Interests

In divorce proceedings, questions about the distribution of your assets and property tend to be at the forefront. What constitutes marital property? Will be divided in an equitable manner? What are the guidelines that determine its division? If you're involved in contentious proceedings, the process can become even more complicated. However, an experienced attorney can work to determine the value of your assets and draft the framework for equitable property division.

At The Law Office of Patricia T. Bisesto, Esq., we provide clients across New York with level-headed representation aimed at protecting your financial interests and we work toward an equitable distribution of assets. In complex cases, including high net worth divorces, we provide a thorough and nuanced understanding of both the family law issues as well as the underlying financial principles of property distribution.

Knowledge And Experience On Your Side

Marital property is defined as all property acquired by either or both spouses during the marriage and before the execution of a separate agreement or the commencement of a matrimonial action regardless of the form in which title is held. Generally, it is presumed that property acquired during a marriage is marital property unless a spouse can prove otherwise.

Especially when couples have been married for a long time, it can be difficult to distinguish between marital property and separate property. In these instances, we work with an extensive team of professionals, including forensic accountants and the use of forensic valuation services to determine the proper value of businesses, ownership interests and other intangible assets.

Particularly in cases involving high net worth individuals, our experience can help discover hidden assets to ensure that equitable distribution occurs.
