Distribution of Complex Assets in Divorce


Are you in the midst of a complicated divorce? Are you unsure of where to turn for help? You need a divorce attorney who is on your side and will fight to protect your rights. One area that can cause confusion is asset division. New York City recognizes equitable distribution of marital assets, but this division is not always so straightforward. There are many complex assets that are not part of a typical property division. Determining how to divide a complex asset requires the work of a knowledgeable and experienced Manhattan divorce attorney. Our attorneys handle divorces involving distribution of a broad spectrum of complex assets:

  • Pensions
  • Stock portfolios and brokerage accounts
  • Defined benefit plans
  • 401(k)s
  • Annuities
  • Shares in a business

If you have received divorce papers from your spouse, you may be in disbelief. You may feel worried, overwhelmed, numb or even glad. One thing you should know about your divorce is that you only have a limited amount of time to respond. It is critical that you talk with a lawyer as soon as possible, especially if issues of complex asset division are involved.
