Dividing future profits from work created during the marriage

Your soon-to-be-ex-spouse has been writing "the great American novel" for most of your marriage. Although you provided lots of encouragement, read more than a few drafts and suggested some plot points and character descriptions, you never thought it would amount to anything.

Why dividing artwork in divorce can be a complicated endeavor

As your and your spouse's incomes grew, you began collecting more increasingly valuable works of art. This art now adorns virtually every room in your home. Now that you're considering divorcing, it's likely to be one of the biggest areas of contention as you divide your property.

Property division in a high-asset divorce

When couples are going through a divorce, one thing that they usually have to confront is the division of their marital property.
