The Challenges of Dividing Foreign-Held Assets
While divorces in the United States involve a pretrial discovery process in which spouses submit detailed financial disclosures, certain other countries may have different procedures or intentionally prohibit such sharing of information. For example, in France, notaries are given the exclusive ability to value assets such as real estate and businesses, whereas notaries in the US have a completely different function. If an asset is held in a foreign country, it may be far more difficult to value or even be identified, requiring a team of experts to obtain this information. Funds or assets within offshore accounts can have similar privacy protections that can be nearly impossible to penetrate without the assistance of a skilled legal team.
Our knowledgeable attorneys can handle all aspects of the division of overseas assets, including:
- Tracing documents and verifying the existence of assets
- Corresponding with foreign governments
- Preparing and filing enforcement actions
- Classifying overseas property as marital or separate
- Enforcing property settlements
