Course Description

One of the biggest issues in a divorce is the equitable distribution of assets. New Jersey is an equitable distribution state, which means that, in New Jersey, marital property is not automatically divided on an equal 50/50 basis. New Jersey law provides that marital assets should be divided fairly, but not always equally. Join Angela Scafuri, Esq., principal at Bressler, Amery Ross, P.C., for an informative program designed to review how New Jersey courts identify, value, and distribute assets between divorcing spouses.

This seminar will assist both new and seasoned family law practitioners in how to identify and value assets subject to equitable distribution, as well as how to utilize best practices to discover hidden assets.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the New Jersey Equitable Distribution Statute
  2. Identify assets subject to equitable distribution
  3. Develop an understanding of how to value different types of assets
  4. Gain a basic understanding of passive vs. active assets
  5. Review the differences between 401k’s, IRA’s, pensions, and other retirement assets
  6. Obtain hot tips to identify and discover hidden assets in divorce
