Complex Divorce

Dedicated Help With Complex Asset Division and Other Issues

The end of a marriage is never easy, particularly when there are a number of assets and other complicated financial issues involved. At the Law Office of Karen Schoenau, our Phoenix and Scottsdale complex divorce attorney has more than two decades of experience handling complicated marriage divorce and separation issues. We will work closely with you in order to ensure that your assets remain protected and any property division is carried out fairly and equitably.

We Handle all Aspects of a Complex Divorce

In general, all divorce cases are roughly the same. If children are involved, there will need to be a determination made as to child custody and visitation, and there may also be questions concerning child support and spousal maintenance. However, things can quickly get complicated when there are significant assets that are subject to property division. Our Arizona family law lawyer can help guide you through this complex area, and help you with:

  • Asset valuation
  • Business ownership valuation
  • Property rights valuation
  • Division of stocks and options
  • Division of pensions and retirement benefits

There may be some question as to whether certain assets were acquired before the marriage or during the marriage. Some assets that were acquired prior to the marriage can turn into marital property under transmutation. These are all things that must be considered during property division. The legal team at the Law Office of Karen Schoenau can parse out how assets are likely to be divided and develop strategies to protect them and ensure that they are divided fairly.

Client Reviews
Karen is highly respected in the legal community. She is effective and thorough. Karen just keeps going regardless of the odds.
Karen was extremely helpful setting up my petition for conciliation. She is by far the most knowledgeable attorney regarding the necessary paperwork, how to file the petition and where it has to be submitted. She listened intently when I was describing my situation and intentions. She was very responsive to my questions and request. She is trustworthy and diligent . I would recommend her to anyone having marital issues. Mark
Very high customer/client considerate. We found Karen when we were forced to leave another Phoenix lawyer due to his bad advice and lack of interest to help us. We were in Phoenix for six days from Michigan with nothing happening but a high wasted expense. Karen and her firm took us in and solved our issue with the courts etc. in two and a half days. Karen’s professionalism with us was very cost effective/productive. If we would have found her first, we would have saved thousands of dollars. Her interest for us was very high. She returned every call. She knew every answer to our questions. She did this for us with a death in her family. She left for a funeral and made sure we were treated with the same professionalism from her firm to finish up. I recommend Karen and her firm with very high satisfaction. Our case is custody with one parent in prison. We will return to Phoenix someday with interests for the child and his parent, if needed. Karen will be our top choice. Nolan
Karen and Bonita are wonderful!! I know that the word "wonderful" is used a lot, but the team they make and the work they did for me can only be described as WONDERFUL!! Yes there where ups and downs in my case, but that is the system and Karen along with Bonita guided and taught me as "WE" went through it together. Karen’s easy going manner and her knowledge really helped me with the emotional part of my divorce. I used the team of Karen and Bonita both times I needed to go to court with my ex and had results that were best for my little girl. Some times I did not get what I wanted, but it was what my daughter needed. Looking back at my case, I made the right choice and would do it again in a heart beat!! Jim
Karen was extremely supportive during a very trying time in our lives. She helped me to put things in perspective and think positive when I was overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to grandparents rights and the rights of the parents and knew how to provide the appropriate laws pertaining to the situation we were in. I am so grateful for her expertise and guidance. She proved to be very aggressive when she needed to be but was also supportive to my and my children. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation. Deanna
