Complex High-Asset Divorce
High Assets Make Divorces More Complicated
In no circumstances could the divorce process be referred to as simple. However, there are factors that can significantly increase their complexity. One of the most common is high assets. When one or both spouses have businesses or business interests, real estate holdings in Virginia or other states, large bank and investment accounts, high-end pensions and retirement accounts, collections of classic cars and other antiques, and other similarly valuable assets, it is extremely important to choose a lawyer with the experience to make certain that property division is handled appropriately.
Our attorneys bring decades of experience to divorce cases involving:
- Business owners: If you or your spouse owns a business, it is vital to have it properly valued and divided in the divorce.
- Divorce tax issues: When getting a divorce, you must consider the tax implications of the assets and debts you acquire.
- Stock options: If one spouse acquired stock options or other deferred income during the marriage, those may be divided in a divorce.
- Long-term alimony: If you had a long marriage and one spouse depended on the other for support, long-term alimony may be appropriate.
- Retirement funds: Your 401K or other retirement funds can be divided in a divorce.
What assets are the most important to protect? We begin every case by learning about the specific needs of each client before we proceed through the four steps of the property division. This includes the identification of assets and debts, classification, valuation and, ultimately, division of assets and debts in a fair and just manner. We can help you understand the financial impact of your divorce and help you resolve issues effectively.
