This is no small task, and a court that is not careful about this important business can fail to divide the couple’s marital estate in a “fair and equitable” manner as required by statute. The opportunities for the court to commit errors and/or be misled by unscrupulous parties and their legal counsel only increase when there are one or more items of property and/or assets of a unique nature.
