What Constitutes a High Asset Divorce?

There is no such thing as an “easy” divorce. The emotional strain of ending a marriage, as well as the challenge it places on family, friends, and loved ones, can be enormous. And that’s before you factor in the added financial headache that the average divorce can cause. Having earned substantial assets is a great accomplishment, but it makes the divorce process even more difficult at times. The family law experts here at Oxendine Law wanted to take some time to discuss what is considered a high asset divorce.

Dividing your marital assets in a fair and equitable fashion during a divorce is never simple. For couples with a high net worth, this challenge is only intensified. It gets even more tricky if you have a diversified portfolio of assets and investments. While some people believe that a prenuptial agreement will be able to protect them in this scenario, this is not always the case. Signing a “prenup” can still leave certain assets vulnerable, depending on the language and terms of your agreement.

Potential assets to consider during a high asset divorce include:

  • Bank accounts
  • Investment accounts
  • Personal trusts
  • Stocks and bonds
  • Pensions
  • Businesses (marital or premarital)
  • Vehicles
  • Property
