Equitable Distribution of Property, 3d
This three-volume work, written by National Legal Research Group Senior Attorney Brett R. Turner, is one of the leading treatises nationwide on the division of property in divorce cases.
The work explains in considerable detail how to classify property as marital or separate, discussing in depth complex assets such as businesses, retirement benefits, and personal injury settlements. It then discusses the available case law on valuing these assets. Next, it considers at length the case law on determining what share of the marital estate should be awarded to each spouse. Finally, it covers questions of procedure, discovery, and the mechanics of division. Based upon a work originally written by Lawrence J. Golden, it is regularly cited in appellate opinions from many different states.
