Trial Skill That Makes A Difference In Trying Times

Guiding Divorce Clients In Asset Division That Includes Stocks

When going through a divorce, you have many concerns. One is whether you will be able to secure the assets that rightfully belong to you. Sometimes, due to their complexity, marital assets cannot be divided easily. This is why you need a skilled family law attorney who knows how to valuate assets such as stock options, securities such as stocks and bonds, pensions, retirement accounts, and mutual funds.

At The Law Offices of Robert W. Dapelo, Esq., PC, in Patchogue, New York, I have more than 30 years of experience in family law cases. I am thorough, knowledgeable and reliable and will make sure you get the assets you deserve. I leave no stone unturned when advocating for clients.

Thorough, Knowledgeable And Skilled

Marital property is considered assets that a couple accumulated during the marriage. Such assets are subject to being divided. However, nonmarital or separate assets are property you obtained prior to the marriage and not subject to division. In your divorce case, I will make a thorough review of assets that may include:

  • Stock options earned and awarded through work
  • Securities such as stocks and bonds
  • Pension plans
  • Retirement accounts
  • Mutual funds

However, there are times when nonmarital assets get converted into marital assets. One example is when a spouse inherits stock or mutual funds and deposit them into a jointly owned account. As a result, courts may consider this entire inheritance as marital property.

With my knowledge and professional connections, I get the job done. And, if I must do so, I will collaborate with financial forensic investigators to search for investments that your soon-to-be former spouse may be trying to hide.
