Helping You Navigate Through Life’s Transitions

Protecting Your Interests In High-Asset Divorce

High-asset divorces present nuances, issues and challenges above and beyond typical divorces. As such, a cookie-cutter approach will not result in the best outcome for the individual. Business, investments, real estate and compensation packages all raise important questions that must be considered in the overall analysis of a divorce case.

Many assets in high net-worth divorces appreciate during the marriage, so it is important to consider the basis of each asset so that the tax consequences of a proposed division can be properly anticipated. There are times when assets cannot be easily divided (e.g. stock options), and the individual and attorney must take into account the tax impact of one party receiving the entire asset.
