Skillful Identification of Asset Values in Rochester, NY

While characterization problems with respect to commingled assets or investment accounts can sometimes complicate property division issues, we find that the most frequent disagreements involve asset valuation, asset transfers and underreported or undisclosed income. Although the general property division objectives in a high net-worth divorce are substantially the same as they are in any other case, what it takes to achieve the desired result is often very different.

Experienced Rochester Divorce Attorney Michael D. Schmitt will work with accountants, appraisers, and investigators as necessary to develop an accurate inventory and valuation of marital property. We know how to review and analyze financial statements and business records to spot the signs of missing or mischaracterized assets. Our goal is to ensure to the greatest degree possible that your property division settlement reflects a complete and accurate understanding of the composition and worth of your marital estate.
