Who may need a Malmquist analysis?
A Malmquist analysis is required when one party has a property they owned prior to marriage but the parties used community property funds to pay the property’s mortgage. The property is separate property by definition as it was owned prior to marriage, but a community property interest exists because the parties used community funds to maintain the property.

To conduct a Malmquist analysis, two appraisals are required: one from date of marriage and a current one.

McFarling Law Group can prepare a Malmquist analysis report for either or both parties in a case.

Fee: $1,250.00– includes appraisals.
