Is A Farm A Marital Asset Or A Nonmarital Asset?
- Farms are often inherited property, passed down from one generation to the next. The value of the farm is more than the value of the soil upon which it is built. A successful farm tends to be the result of an entire family pitching in and doing the work.
- One spouse may have inherited the farm from his or her parents, but the other may have spent full days tending to crops or livestock or handling other important duties. These issues need to be taken into consideration when handling division of property during a farm family divorce. We can help you.
- Addressing the valuation and division of farms and all farm assets are all important factors. While the land itself tends to have both the most financial and emotional value, other assets are often involved that make up the entire farming operation, including tractors, equipment, livestock and stored crops.
