Divorce is a complex matter that involves different facets from parental and child-related matters to the financial-related issues, and they’re better addressed with a team of professionals that are experts in one aspect or another. Financials, for example, when one of the spouses have a closely held business, might require business valuators that could give their professional and unbiased opinion on the value of the business or in determining marital and non-marital assets. Vocational experts can also come in to evaluate the income-earning capabilities of a spouse that isn’t a wage earner to determine if and how much financial support should be allocated. Real estate appraisers can be needed to ascertain the value of any real-estate owned within the marriage. Divorce and Family Law Partners Jessica Winkler Boike and Thomas T. Field discuss what type of issues are usually involved and the experts they turn to for support.
