High Net Worth Divorce

Ventura High-Asset Divorce Attorneys

High-asset divorces have issues that are more nuanced and complicated than those of a traditional divorce. In addition to tracing all assets, one must understand the issues involved with valuation. In the case of highly compensated executives who are paid based on performance points or deferred compensation packages, it is often necessary to have an expert understanding of how these assets operate, particularly if and when they are cashed out.

Likewise, professionals with their own practice have valuation issues – accounts receivable and salary cannot both be considered for compensation. Additionally, it is impossible to sell a reputation so further issues arise.

Issues become further complicated when it comes to real estate and bank accounts. If portions of a house are added after marriage, then a portion may be considered marital property, even if it was obtained before marriage. The same goes for commingling funds.

If you are working through a complex or high-asset divorce, it is critical to reaching out to a skilled legal firm to protect your financial well-being.
