Property division issues in high-net worth divorces

by | Jul 28, 2017 | High-Asset Divorce |

California couples who wish to divorce often have to deal with complex property division issues. Whether you are the spouse who has a higher net worth or the spouse who has a lower net worth in your marriage, going through a divorce may necessitate the help of a team of professionals.

When couples have accumulated substantial assets during their marriages, it may be difficult to untangle their finances and to divide their assets in their divorces. It may be important for you to get help from business valuation experts, real estate appraisers, retirement plan division experts and forensic public accountants.

High-net worth divorce matters may have to deal with the division of stock holdings, businesses, art collections and other valuable assets. They might also require that you determine what property is separate and what is marital, including the portions of the separate property that have become commingled during the marriage and that may be subject to partial divisions. In some cases, a higher-earning spouse may try to hide assets that will need to be discovered in order to protect your interests.
