High-Asset Divorce in New Haven County
What Is a High-Asset Divorce?
High-asset divorce cases involve extensive amounts of real estate, investment
and business accounts, and other financial assets that require the use
of skilled and thorough financial planning. When facing a divorce, these
assets become a large focus of the settlement, which can take months or
even years to negotiate.
- High-asset divorces take the following into account:
- Real estate
- Investment accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Business assets
- Stocks and stock options
- Life insurance
- Expense accounts
How Are Assets Divided in a Divorce?
In most high-asset cases, a
prenuptial or postnuptial agreement exists, however if this is not the case, Connecticut law states that all
assets must be divided among the spouses based on several factors that
the court will use to determine a settlement.
- These factors include:
- Present and future earning potential
- The length of the marriage
- The reason for the divorce
- Each person's health and other needs
- Other pertinent financial issues
When large amounts of money and other assets are involved, we may also
recommend hiring a forensic accountant or other valuator. Our attorneys
work tirelessly to not only handle all aspects of the divorce, but also
work to keep the divorce discreet in order to protect both parties and
all of the assets involved.
