Program Summary

The party claiming appreciation usually bears the burden of proof to justify an award. Courts have developed various tests that the non-titled spouse must navigate to recover appreciated value, but the decisions are often unclear. Counsel should be familiar with the types of evidence needed. This course will address questions about distributing the appreciated value of assets in a divorce, property division, and the best evidence strategies. The program will discuss how to assert a claim to the appreciation of both marital and non-marital assets, including burdens of proof for demonstrating passive and active appreciation.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
