Property distribution is often a contentious matter in a divorce, especially when complex assets such as stock options or restricted stock and other employment benefits are involved. At BRODER & ORLAND LLC, our attorneys have the experience to effectively handle complex property division cases. Our firm will seek to resolve property distribution disputes in a way that ensures our clients receive an equitable share of the assets.
Stock options, restricted stock and employment benefits often have payout specifications and may not be accessible until several years after the marriage is dissolved. Additionally, recovering the assets could result in significant tax implications. Our lawyers take the time necessary to ensure our divorcing clients understand all the issues with regard to complex assets so that they can make smart decisions about their property distribution agreements.
We can help provide solutions for the equitable distribution of assets such as:
- Stock options
- Restricted stock units
- Severance package agreements
- Other employee benefits
Greenwich Lawyers Uncovering Hidden Assets In A Divorce
It is not uncommon for one spouse to have little knowledge of the other spouse's employee benefits and retirement assets. When necessary, our firm will assemble a team of financial experts to help identify assets that are eligible for division. In Connecticut, all assets that exist at the time of divorce are subject to division, so even benefits brought into the marriage by each party need to be identified for the distribution of property.
