We Collaborate With Financial Experts

Through close scrutiny and application of the Brandenburg formula or another approved formula, we facilitate accurate classification of assets as separate or marital property.

Our Attorneys Are Adept At Analyzing Complex Property Division Issues

“Hybrid” property is often the most time-consuming asset to analyze in preparation for equitable distribution negotiations in a Virginia divorce.

For example, if one spouse started a business or bought a house five years before a marriage began, a percentage of its value will be his or her separate interest while another percentage will be marital property. If an inheritance was used to buy or expand a business or remodel the home, the task of tracing assets may be intricate and complex.

Sophisticated accounting in tandem with precise legal analysis can provide the answers needed to present a clear case before a family court judge.

We understand the importance of asset protection for divorcing individuals who are undergoing negotiations or mediation. Equitable property division that maximizes our client’s long-term financial health after a divorce may affect an entire family’s economic outlook.
