A: Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the coverture of the marital estate is date of marriage to date the divorce complaint is filed. Any asset that falls into that time frame is part of the marital estate and therefore presumed to be subject to equitable distribution. There are certain exceptions to this which can move the date of valuation such as a long separation and there are certain factors that must be met. I would recommend on meeting with an experienced attorney to discuss the valuation with you.
