Your guide to understanding financial information in financially complex family law cases

This publication is essential for: all lawyers advising family law clients on financially complex issues

The Third Edition of Financial Issues in Family Law guides you through the financially complex matters that arise on the breakdown of a relationship when one or both of the spouses have business interests and interests in trusts. This includes characterization as family property or excluded property, financial disclosure, valuation principles, methods of division, tax consequences, and the calculation of income for child support.

To help illustrate the concepts, sample documents are presented and annotated with practical commentary. Among these are financial statements for a sole proprietorship, a holding company, and an operating company, as well as business valuations for the holding company and operating company, a trust agreement, sample tax returns, and a calculation of Child Support Guideline income.
