Mediated Divorce Involving Trusts, Gifts of Stock and Cash


Rob Hill represented a client in a divorce whose family had set up various trusts for his benefit during the marriage and had given him frequent gifts of stock and cash. With the help of an accountant, Rob was able to trace the history of the gifts from his family and set those assets as his non-marital property. With the accountant's report, the spouses attended mediation and reached an amicable settlement. Both spouses were pleased that they never had to step into the courthouse as part of their divorce.
