VPS StraightTalk Webinar Series: Complex Compensation in Marital Divorce Disputes

Speaker: Marc Bello, CPA/ABV, CVA, MAFF, MST

If you are a financial expert working with family law attorneys in divorce matters involving equity-based compensation, you don’t want to miss this detailed program.

Equity-based compensation can be a significant hurdle for attorneys to understand when it comes to support and asset division issues pursuant to a divorce. Compared to cash wages (typically, salary and bonus), an equity-based plan may represent a major component of a spouse’s income and deferred wealth. As valuation/financial experts providing attorneys with support in understanding the inner workings of such plans, the components of income, deferral options, and tax implications can prove extremely valuable.

This webinar will help you gain an understanding of various types of nonqualified deferred compensation plans such as stock options, restricted stock plans, supplemental employee retirement plans, and more. Within each type of plan, we will analyze the mechanics to identify proper discovery requests, evaluate annual awards, and how to consider factors for asset division and support orders. The program will also cover the potential tax implications of equity-based awards.

Learning Objectives:
The participant will learn how to:

  • Understand financial aspects of various types of nonqualified deferred compensation plans
  • Identify documents to assist with the discovery process
  • Ways to evaluate equity-based compensation plans for support and or asset division
  • How to deal with the tax impact of equity-based compensation plans
