Complex Property Division in Divorce
When Life Changes, We Are Here to Help
While issues such as child custody and visitation may be the most emotional components of a divorce action, complex property division is often one of the most complicated and contentious. At Law & Mediation Firm of Klueck & Hoppes, APC in San Diego, CA, we believe that careful research and aggressive negotiation are the key components to making sure assets are divided fairly among the parties.
Using the "mandatory California approach of community property," we can help you reach a fair property settlement and help you determine what can be deemed community property as well as argue what should or should not be considered separate property. We also have a keen eye to making sure the correct valuations are used and the tax implications of certain assets are factored in when considering your wealth.

Procuring the Proper Valuation & Distribution of Assets
Often in high net worth divorces, determining the actual value of your assets requires formal appraisals and valuations done by qualified experts. We work with respected professionals across all industries, including business valuation experts and real estate appraisers.
We also consult with accountants who can help us properly determine the tax implications that come with the division of certain assets, such as retirement accounts, investment portfolios, selling a portion of a family business, as well as stock options.
Our attorneys are also experienced when it comes to debt allocation as a component of any divorce agreement. We will be at your side, helping you sort through every asset and option. We also offer a wide variety of models when it comes to trying to negotiate these issues, including mediation and collaborative law, which are often more open, amicable, and cost-effective solutions.
