What is—and is not—marital property is often hotly contested.
The definitions look simple, but in practice it’s rarely that easy. In order to prove that a given property is non-marital, a lawyer must trace it from original acquisition to present state. This can be challenging, especially when the asset in question is an investment account or an assortment of funds associated with real property acquisition.
Needless to say, marital estates can be enormously complex, especially when they involve closely held businesses, pension plans, investments, real estate, and personal property of sentimental value. Depending on the size and complexity of the estate, valuing marital property may involve either neutral experts or experts retained by either side.
