Divorce is an unfortunate reality for many people.

High asset divorce requires significant attention-to-detail and extensive legal knowledge

While many divorces are rather straightforward and may be resolved in a matter of a few months, high asset and high income divorces require in-depth analysis and may take several months or even years to resolve. One of the first steps in the divorce process is to file an accurate statement of matrimonial net worth. Asset valuation is one of the most integral parts of high net worth divorces. Your net worth statement must include all assets such as:

  • Real estate holdings
  • Family owned business assets
  • Retirement investments
  • Stocks, bonds and executive interests
  • Checking and savings accounts
  • Property such as automobiles, jewelry, artwork and other valuables or collectibles

Accurate and honest statements of net worth are vital to ensuring that property division is equitable and you get the settlement to which you are entitled.

Planning ahead for potential challenges saves both time and money

Few people want to think about divorce when they are planning a wedding or newly married. However, pre- and postnuptial agreements are one of the primary ways couples can plan for a potentially costly and lengthy divorce. A validly executed marital agreement is a simple way for each party to establish which assets are considered separate property or joint marital property. Attorney Karen Jansen has helped numerous couples evaluate their assets and financial resources and develop a mutually beneficial and practical plan for the future.
