High-Asset Divorce Cases in Fairfield County
High-asset divorce cases typically involve substantial assets and property of various types. These cases require an in-depth understanding of the complexity of each client’s circumstances. Lacking a valid prenuptial agreement, the court may consider any and all assets subject to division, no matter how they are titled or held.
These assets can include:
- Real property
- Business holdings
- Hedge funds and private equity funds
- Bank accounts
- Stocks and bonds
- Inheritance property
- Retirement accounts
- Executive compensation plans
- Intellectual property
- Offshore accounts
- Personal assets
- Hidden assets
With substantial assets, a party may attempt to devalue or hide their property. Thus, all assets in these cases must be properly identified, located, and formally valued before the issue of division can be resolved. This commonly requires independent experts such as appraisers, business valuation professionals, and forensic accountants. Furthermore, dividing assets may have tax and/or business consequences which must be determined prior to settlement or trial.
