Central New Jersey Property Valuation Lawyers
In New Jersey, marital property is divided according to the principle of equitable distribution. This does not necessarily mean that marital assets will be divided equally between the parties. Instead, the court tries to distribute property in a way that it considers fair.
Each party in the divorce or civil union dissolution will likely have different opinions about what is fair, however. To protect your rights during property division, it is best to work with an experienced attorney. At Hanan M Isaacs, we have helped hundreds of people in property division determinations. To arrange a consultation with a central New Jersey property valuation attorney, please call 609-683-7400.

We Work With Experts To Value Marital Assets
To properly value specific assets, we bring in expert appraisers for each type of asset. This may include real estate appraisers, business valuators, art appraisers, jewelers and gemologists, antiques appraisers, silver appraisers, book appraisers and others. To value financial assets, we often work with forensic accountants, CPAs, investment advisers, tax experts and economists. If there are hidden assets, we will work with experts to locate them.
Once assets have been valued, we can begin negotiations to divide them. It is best to do this via negotiation or alternative dispute resolution (ADR) rather than let a judge decide. In most cases, both parties benefit from reaching a property settlement agreement that they create. However, when necessary, we will take the case to trial.
Some of the most common assets in a divorce include:
- Personal property such as cars and furnishings
- Real estate
- Retirement accounts
You can rely on our experience and thorough approach to asset valuation, regardless of your net worth or the size of your marital estate.
