The division of assets, property and debts during a Minnesota Divorce is a process that requires financial acumen and precise attention to detail. The division does not need to be mathematically equal, only equitable. Frequently, the parties agree to divide the assets on the balance sheet in a manner that is approximately “equal.” The use of a CPA, ASA, CDFA, Actuary or Neutral Real Estate Appraiser may be required in order to provide neutral valuations of various assets, such as a 401k, 403b, Qualified Plan, IRA, Pension, Business and Real Estate.
