Determining the Value of Individual & Shared Assets
In the state of Wyoming, spouses are required to disclose all owned real estate, debt amounts, and privately owned property during divorce proceedings. The state recognizes both separate and marital property—but this can be less straightforward than it seems. For instance, if one spouse owned a home prior to the marriage, but both spouses made contributions to the property throughout the duration of the marriage, the home may be considered marital property.
Assets that are eligible for reassignment through divorce include:
- Residential properties
- Commercial properties
- Rental properties
- Retirement accounts
- Bank accounts
- Vehicles and boats
- Investment accounts
