Why Does High-Asset Divorce Require An Experienced Team?
Divorce is always complex, as one family divides assets, develops a workable custody plan and becomes two. However, couples with significant assets face an even more challenging process. High-asset couples usually have more complex investment strategies, property holdings and accounts, making it increasingly difficult to accurately value and divide holdings.
If you face a high-asset divorce, you need to partner with a team that can confidently guide you through the process, ensuring a fair divorce settlement that protects your long-term financial security. Our firm has guided Indiana families through divorce since 1952. We can help you divide businesses, retirement accounts, investments and other assets in a logical manner that protects your best interests
Properly Valuing Complex Assets
Valuing a family’s investments, retirement accounts, properties and other assets is one of the most challenging aspects of a high-asset divorce. Typically, both the volume and complexity of the assets are much greater, requiring attention to detail and in-depth knowledge of proper valuation techniques.
With more assets, there is more at stake to lose or gain. It is essential to partner with a firm that can thoroughly analyze all factors at play and provide the insight you need to explain the financial effects, including tax repercussions, of various division arrangements.
Preventing Your Spouse From Concealing Assets
