High-Asset Valuation in a Maryland Divorces

In any divorce case, the division of marital property has the potential to become a major sticking point. Resolving this issue, however, is a much more complex process when at least one spouse owns substantial assets without a readily apparent market value, or when there is a complex marital asset base, including businesses, stock options, trademarks or other intellectual property.

At the law firm of Trainor, Billman, Bennett & Milko, LLP, our Annapolis divorce attorneys have extensive experience in the area of high-asset valuation and distribution. We work with highly qualified experts to obtain the information we need to seek the outcomes our clients deserve.

Valuation typically becomes a difficult issue when an asset’s present value is difficult to measure or an asset’s future value is likely to be substantially different from its present value. The following are some types of assets where special attention to valuation is required:

  • Businesses and business ownership interests
  • Medical, legal and other professional practices
  • Commercial and residential investment properties
  • Stock options and other deferred compensation
  • Manuscripts, screenplays, publishing contracts

Valuation of assets such as these is not what divorce lawyers do; rather, these intricate accounting and financial analyses are performed by specially trained and licensed experts who we engage to assist in high-asset divorce cases. Applying their training and experience, these valuation experts are able to accurately assess and account for intangible assets like goodwill and present value, and to identify the extent of a party’s ownership in a jointly owned asset.
