High Net Worth Divorce

High Net Worth Divorce

Murrieta Divorce & Family Law Attorney

No divorce is simple. The splitting of a couple is complex and can lead to immeasurable levels of difficulties - not only emotionally, but financially as well. This is true in divorces between two childless parties of low net worth, but is never truer than when the divorce involves parties of high net worth. Finances get complicated when high net worth gets involved and issues that were already difficult, such as alimony, property division and child support, get compounded.

In a high net worth divorce, it is important that marital property is valued fairly—as in California, all assets are awarded a value and then divided equally between the two divorcing spouses. As long as the assets and the property were obtained within the scope of the marriage, it will be subject to division—regardless of who actually owns them. A few exceptions apply to the "community property" laws in California, however, including inherited assets and/or money and gifts.

In order to make sure that property is divided fairly in a divorce, it is important to enlist the help of experienced legal counsel that will conduct a thorough investigation of the all assets included as marital property. This way, exclusions can be kept out of the divorce settlement. Also, if any legally binding prenuptial or postnuptial agreements have been entered into before the time of the divorce, all of the stipulations of that contract need to be taken into account.
