Protecting Your Assets In A Divorce

In addition to child custody considerations, and determining child support and spousal maintenance or alimony, the division of your marital property could also be contentious in a divorce case when there are significant assets. When couples have a combined high net worth, there are additional considerations, including:

  • Business ownership interests
  • Pension plans
  • Retirement savings
  • Luxury goods like cars, art, jewelry and electronics
  • Properties like vacation homes, commercial real estate and rental properties
  • Investment portfolios

Courts will first identify which assets are marital and nonmarital. Nonmarital assets do not have to be divided in the divorce. Therefore, in a high asset divorce scenario, designating an asset as nonmarital is important.

Access To Financial Experts

In high net worth divorce scenarios, we regularly work with experts. Our goal is to craft a legal strategy to protect your interests and help you finalize your divorce with the least amount of stress possible. Some of the experts we employ include:

  • Forensic accountants
  • Appraisers
  • Business valuation experts

According to Minnesota law, both parties in a divorce have to fully disclose financial information to one another. In a high net worth divorce, there are often concerns that one party is hiding accounts and assets from the other. By working with financial experts, we help minimize the risk that this is happening in your divorce.

Determining Alimony In A High Net Worth Divorce

Oftentimes, one spouse is making significantly more money than the other in a high net worth divorce. Working with financial experts can provide additional insight into spousal maintenance and alimony considerations. We understand that anticipating alimony can add additional stress. Oftentimes, it is possible to negotiate alimony payments during settlement discussions. Spousal maintenance is often discussed during mediation. This helps parties settle on a number together, which can alleviate significant amounts of stress.

Our attorney provides practical legal advice that considers your financial best interests. He will advise you on when it is worth fighting for an asset. He will also let you know when it might be wise to let something go. Most importantly, he will protect your financial interests when it comes to alimony negotiations and calculations.
