NFTs in Family Law

  • Gain clarity about what non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are and how they are created, stored, and transferred
  • Discover the impact of property protection orders on NFTs
  • Explore discovery and valuation of NFTs in the divorce process
  • Learn how NFTs are divided and apportioned



Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, are digital assets that cannot be copied, as each token is digitally tracked on the blockchain. NFTs as a source of wealth can lead to several challenges for family law attorneys. 

First, as a novel technology, it can be difficult to ascertain the value of an NFT at a particular point in time. NFTs are impacted by the price of the cryptocurrency they are tied to. A second challenge is that NFTs are linked to digital wallets, and most digital wallets are set up by a single person, can be fairly (or completely) anonymous, and are often only brought up in discovery when the spouse who is a custodian of that wallet reveals them.

In this session, Ariel Leichter-Maroko, CFLS, presents the intersection of NFTs and family law. Mr. Leichter-Maroko shares how NFTs relate to cryptocurrency, and how NFTs can be valued. He discusses the challenge of dividing NFTs, as well as how a buyout might work in this scenario. After discussing how to determine equitable apportionment, he then covers tax implications for this new asset class.
