Creve Coeur & O'Fallon, MO High Asset Divorce Attorneys
People with high incomes, large assets, and significant net worth obviously have much at stake when considering a divorce. Multiple trusts, a variety of investment portfolios, real estate and other luxury items, business shares, future options – all stand as potential targets in a dissolution proceeding. How does a person with significant assets protect their value? What assets are truly subject to division? Will dissolution result in enormous tax bills, capital losses, or other negative financial consequences?

Dividing Assets & the QDRO
In one sense, a high asset divorce is no different than any other divorce – the court must make a determination as to which assets and liabilities are separate property, which are marital property, set separate property apart to each party, and equitably divide the marital property. In practice, however, the type of assets owned by individuals above a certain income or wealth threshold can be very tangled, or commingled, governed by complex documents and perhaps not easily severable under the law, and subject to severe tax consequences.
As you can see from the issues to resolve, the process is not just a short set of simple, self-executing rules, but involves many complex and often difficult questions of proof. Only a skilled and experienced divorce attorney can properly advise you as to your rights with regard to high asset divorce and protect those rights in a legal proceeding.
