Division of Marital Assets –Jewelry
An appraisal for jewelry is usually required before individuals or a court can divide the marital assets due to the need to know the worth or value of the asset. Depending on the state, jewelry received as a gift post marriage can be considered marital property. Because this jewelry is marital property, both parties have a right to portion of its value. However, some jewelry, such as engagement rings, are usually not considered part of marital assets. The timing in which the jewelry is acquired has a big impact on whether it is considered a marital asset. Let your attorney give you the proper advice!
