Northern Virginia High-Value Divorce Lawyers
In the process of dividing marital assets as part of a divorce, it is important to understand which assets can be included as part of the marital estate. While it is widely understood that certain facets of executive compensation plans can be included in the estate, some of the most widely misunderstood issues in the area of asset division may be those involving stock options.
At Hale Ball, we provide skillful representation to clients across northern Virginia in a broad range of complex divorce matters. Stock option division cases can be extremely complex and both spouses have a lot at stake. We represent clients on both sides of these disputes. Our understanding of how to approach these cases from multiple perspectives allows us to present a much more compelling argument for our clients.
The law in Virginia regarding stock options as part of a marital property division settlement is in a constant state of change. Our dedicated family law attorneys stay abreast of these changes and work tirelessly to secure the best result available for every client.
Seeking a Fair Resolution in Complex Stock Option Division Cases
In the limited number of Virginia court decisions that have dealt directly with the issue of stock options, the options have been largely treated as deferred compensation, subject to distribution under Virginia law. It is not relevant whether the options were vested or nonvested, only that they were earned during the marriage.
Our northern Virginia stock options divorce lawyers are committed to doing whatever is necessary to secure a positive result for our clients. We will work with you to gain a complete understanding of the nature and status of the stock options and build a plan specifically designed with your best interests in mind.
