Frequently Asked Questions About High-Asset Divorces

The end of your marriage can feel like the end of the world. It is perfectly normal to have a lot of questions. Below are some of the ones we hear the most.

What is considered a high-asset divorce?

High-asset divorce typically refers to divorces involving significant financial holdings and marital assets. Those going through such divorces include couples that have substantial wealth or complex financial portfolios that they must divide.

High-asset divorces also often include the ownership of businesses and professional practices, significant incomes, luxury assets and even international assets. Spouses involved in high-asset divorces usually have unique concerns, including how to protect their privacy or public image. It takes an attorney with exceptional insight and skill to be effective in these complicated divorces.

Is Georgia an equitable distribution state?

Yes, Georgia is an equitable distribution state. This means that marital assets and debts are not automatically divided 50/50 between the divorcing spouses like they are in community property states. Instead, the marital property has to be divided in a way that is reasonable and fair.

This means that each spouse’s contributions to the marriage – monetary or otherwise – have to be evaluated, along with things like the length of the marriage, the needs of any minor children, the sacrifices that each party made during the marriage and each party’s financial needs.

How can I protect my assets in a high-asset divorce?

Make sure that you get copies of all your household’s financial records, including tax returns for the last few years and statements from bank accounts, retirement accounts and credit card companies. Good documentation will help your lawyer determine everything that you are entitled to receive.

Once a divorce is in motion, the best thing you can do to protect your assets is to hire an experienced high-asset divorce attorney to guide you.

An Experienced Lawyer Fighting For You In Emotional And Uncertain Times

Above all, you will likely want to smoothly move on to the next chapter after your divorce. Getting to that point will require a divorce attorney who will protect your rights, look out for your children’s best interests, and pursue the best outcomes possible through mediation or trial litigation.
