What Assets Are Presented During a High Net-Worth Divorce?
All assets held within a marriage that were used or accrued during the marriage will usually need to be considered within a final distribution. In addition to commonly divided assets such as bank accounts and retirement funds, wealthy divorcing couples may have to address unique types of property.
The most common assets that are addressed in high net-worth divorces for Worcester couples include:
Once divorce proceedings start, some couples choose to form an agreement with the other party quickly regarding how property should be divided. This property settlement agreement is then presented to a judge for inclusion in the divorce decree. Other couples cannot come to an agreement and must move forward in court without first having an agreement. Either way, it’s important that you understand your rights or what liabilities you may face with the division of your property. We know that the assets from your marriage often have more than monetary value; property such as homes, cars, boats, and other expensive items can have a great deal of meaning and significance. During your divorce, our legal team can apply our firsthand experience to help you get a scope of the assets you could carry away after a settlement.

"I am so happy with the services Attorney Khan provided, she came in at the last minute after a previous attorney did not fulfil his duties and she found errors he had made, worked all weekend on a rush to finalize my divorce."- Courtney O.
"LaKeshia Parker Smalls and her team were so wonderful throughout my divorce process. I spoke with a few other lawyers before hiring her who made me feel like a burden with all the questions I needed answers to."- Jessica C.

These types of assets require additional skill in knowing the best way to divide them during a divorce. The assistance of a forensic accountant is extremely useful to ensure that all assets are discovered and accounted for, including the value of any overseas accounts, businesses, or property. When assets are so valuable, varied, and numerous, there is often additional conflict among divorcing spouses in Worcester. Our high net-worth divorce lawyers can stand by your side throughout this fight, supporting you in seeking the divorce terms you deserve.
Many couples who entered the marriage already in a healthy financial position will have had prenuptial agreements drafted. When there is a valid prenuptial agreement, the provisions of this agreement may significantly impact the financial interests of one or both partners during divorce proceedings. If the prenuptial agreement was not drafted correctly, there may be additional hearings surrounding the validity of the prenup. A divorce lawyer with a history of handling high net-worth marriage dissolutions can investigate marital assets and use their experience to negotiate an amicable settlement or fight for your rights within the courtroom.
