When is a Divorce Considered “High-Asset”?
A high-asset divorce, also known has a high net worth divorce, typically involves dividing a large marital estate. This may include obvious things such as various pension and retirement funds, IRA accounts, 401(K)s and other retirement plans. It can also include unique properties such as fine art, automobile or memorabilia collections, business ownerships and private/commercial real estate.
How are Assets Divided in a Divorce?
Whether you accumulated significant assets together or separately, the division of these assets is likely to take center stage during the divorce proceedings. According to the Indiana’s “marital pot” rule – if there is no prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement – all of the assets owned by either or both spouses will be up for negotiation. This also includes any assets that were acquired both before or during the marriage and any legal titles will be ignored.
Even if you both agree to split everything equally, you will still have to face many challenging issues during your divorce.
Protecting Your Rights and Interests
The importance of the property settlement cannot be overstated. It will form the foundation of your finances for some time to come. Accordingly, you should choose an Indianapolis divorce attorney with litigation experience and the advocacy skills needed to protect your rights and interests.
Work With an Experienced High-Asset Divorce Lawyer
When you retain our firm to represent you in your divorce, Angela Trapp will undertake a comprehensive examination of your marital assets (those acquired during the course of the marriage with some exceptions, such as inheritances and certain gifts). In a case involving ownership of a business, our law firm may call in experts in certain disciplines, such as a business valuation specialist or one or more appraisers.
Working closely with these experts, Angela Trapp will determine the true value of the business, including “hidden” assets and liabilities such as tax liabilities and tax loss carry forwards, and the value of any underlying real estate.
These analyses will form the basis of our case, and they open the door for a possible negotiated settlement that will result in a fair and equitable division of your marital assets and debts. If necessary, however, Trapp Law, LLC, will be prepared to represent you assertively in litigation to protect your rights and interests.
