Calculating The Value Of The Marital Estate

Closely associated with complex litigation, marital estate valuation seeks to determine the value of marital assets, or the actual joint or individual ownership of other assets within a marriage.

These aren't simple stocks, bonds or bank accounts. Unique assets — classic motor cars, musical equipment, firearms, jewelry, antiques and furniture, and collections of unique, one-of-a-kind or high-value collectibles — can be difficult to place a hard value upon. To do so, a law firm will hire forensic accountants, business valuators, real estate appraisers, personal property appraisers, and art and historical artifact appraisers to review property and determine its value. Such experts are relied upon to bring their unique expertise to each case to establish fair market value.
