Once it is determined what is marital property and debt, does it have to be valued?

Yes. A court cannot divide a marital asset or debt unless credible, admissible evidence is produced about the value of the asset or balance of the debt. It is necessary to obtain competent valuations of assets for the court to value it. For assets such as real estate, businesses, professional practices and certain retirement accounts, it is usually necessary to retain experts to provide an opinion of value.
