Complex Property Division

Complex Property Division AttorneyKingston Complex Property Division Lawyer Serving New Paltz, Hudson Valley, Dutchess, Orange, & Ulster County

Under New York law, the assets spouses bring into a marriage and accumulate over the length of the marriage will be classified as either separate or marital property. New York is not a community property state. In the event of marriage dissolution, proper characterization of assets is often the most complex issue to settle. Attorneys must litigate the fair appreciation value of assets and whether separate property was commingled and is subject to equitable distribution.

What is the Value of Your Marital Property?

At the firm of Jonathan D. Katz, Attorney at Law, I understand the issues concerning separate property and marital property division, including complex financial issues involved in divorces involving high net worth spouses. I work with independent financial specialists and property valuation experts to determine property division issues, such as:

In addition to complex marital property division issues, prenuptial agreements and postnuptial agreements may or may not require litigation to determine their validity under the law.

Even the most complex financial estates can often be settled in skillful negotiation and arbitration, without a costly trial. My firm is recognized in New York family law courts for bringing experience and knowledge to the table for more than 25 years. Judges and opposing lawyers know that I come thoroughly prepared to find creative solutions that courts will accept as an equitable distribution settlement. If your spouse is not willing to come to acceptable terms, I assure you that you will have the strongest, most experienced trial attorney fighting for your financial interests in court.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
