High Asset Divorce
Whether you’ve been married for a month or a decade, it’s rarely easy to divide marital assets in a divorce. The more you have, the more amplified those challenges tend to be.

High asset divorces aren’t just difficult for the average person; they’re beyond the expertise of many attorneys as well. Learn more about these unique cases.
A prenuptial agreement makes a high asset divorce simple, right?
Not necessarily. “Prenups” still leave certain issues that need to be negotiated and finalized depending on the language in your agreement. There are also specific issues which cannot be determined by a prenuptial agreement. In some cases, having a prenuptial agreement in place can even make a divorce more complicated. Whether you have a prenup, a postnup, or no existing agreement, you still need the specialized experience of a high asset divorce attorney.
What types of assets will we need to divide during our divorce?
A divorce is like moving: you end up finding accounts and assets that you forgot you even owned. We make sure every divorce settlement is as thorough as possible, accounting for important assets such as:
- Banking accounts (checking, savings, money market)
- Investment accounts
- Personal trusts
- Stocks and bonds
- Retirement accounts and benefits
- Businesses (marital or premarital)
- Professional practices
- Luxury items
- Real estate
Every divorce is unique, and this list is just a start. Our family law attorneys can guide you through the process of cataloging and prioritizing your assets so we can advocate for you.
I don’t want to lose the net worth I’ve fought for, but I don’t want my divorce to be an emotional train wreck either. How do I find a balance?
This is a balance that’s important for each and every client, especially if you have children and if custody and parenting time are issues in your divorce. Movies and TV shows lead you to believe that you either have to give your spouse everything you own or be willing to drag your spouse through the mud to come out on top. The truth is that while it takes finesse, experience, and intricate knowledge of the legal system, it is possible to obtain a great end result while allowing everyone in the family to retain their dignity. This is our goal for every client we represent.
