Dividing Financial Investments In Everett And Snohomish County

Many married couples end up investing together, putting money away through pension plans (including military pensions), stock options, 401(k)s, IRAs and other retirement accounts. When a divorce happens, these assets are the subject of many property division disputes, because they represent not only years of planning within the marriage, but also an expected return for many years after the divorce is final.

At Akiona Law, PLLC, we help clients in the Everett and Seattle areas value and divide financial investment assets in high-asset divorce proceedings throughout Washington. With more than a decade of experience behind us, we offer quality mediation and negotiation and collaborative law services tailored to each of our clients’ individual needs. Instead of taking the matter to court, consider these alternative dispute tactics. You may find that the process is less stressful, less expensive and that it takes far less time than going to court. Speak with us to learn more about how it may apply to your circumstances. 

Helping Determine A Fair And Equitable Split Of Investments

We often handle cases that involve determining:

  • Each party’s claim to an investment (does the financial investment asset qualify as community property to be divided in the divorce?)
  • The estimated return on an investment over the course of years following the divorce
  • What constitutes equitable division of financial investment assets

You Need A Team That Can Handle Every Aspect Of Property Division

The average divorce lawyer does not necessarily understand the complexity of these assets and how they must be managed when negotiating divorce agreements or aggressively pursuing results in court.

Over the years, our team has developed an acute understanding of these issues and how they can influence our clients’ lives for years to come in other ways. For example, if you cash out an investment account now in an effort to split the assets during divorce, you will likely face tax consequences as a result.
