Property Division

Property Division

New Hampshire generally divides assets equally with a 10 year or longer marriage, but some assets are worth more than other assets even if on face they appear the same.  For instance, if the parties’ divide stock based on current equal value, the stock with the higher basis (purchase price) is really worth more because less taxes will have to be paid on the sale of the stock.  Also, you have to evaluate the likelihood of future appreciation of that asset.  Further, deferred assets and assets that will be taxed upon receipt such as a 401(k) plan may be equal in face value for example to a cash bank account or equity in the marital home but are in no way near equal in a property division.
