Minnesota basketball fans may have recently heard about some of the ongoing off-the-court drama of NBA star Allen Iverson. Iverson is in the midst of finalizing a divorce from his wife of 10 years, and she has now filed a court document asking the former NBA point guard to turn over the names and phone numbers of every woman he slept with during their marriage. His wife, Tawanna Iverson, has previously said that the divorce had nothing to do with infidelity.
She has also asked for full disclosure of his financial information. It has recently been reported that after earning $200 million throughout his career, Allen Iverson went broke this year. Tawanna Iverson has asked for full custody of their five children, child support and alimony and stated that he has spent large amounts of money on himself after the divorce filing rather than supporting his family.
It is unclear why Tawanna Iverson has asked for the specific information about the extra-marital affairs, but some have said it may be a power play in order to force a speedy settlement.
High net-worth divorces in Minnesota can be very complicated, especially when it comes to property division. One of the most complicated and essential elements of these divorce cases is to determine which debts and assets are a part of the marital estate and how to assign accurate value to them.
Often, the divorce attorneys involved in these cases access forensic accountants, valuation experts and other financial specialists to evaluate any business valuation and complex bank accounts as well as aid in the discovery of assets.
