Guiding Virginia Residents Through High-Asset Divorce
The complexity of a divorce often depends on the size of the marital estate in question. If you and your spouse have accumulated significant assets during your marriage, you will have to make tough decisions about how to divide them, no matter how amicable your divorce may be otherwise.

Understanding The Stakes Of A High-Asset Divorce
High-asset divorces involve many of the same assets that typical divorces do, albeit in much larger quantities. For instance, a typical couple may own one or two properties that they need to split ownership of, whereas couples with a high net worth may need to determine the ownership of multiple properties, both residential and commercial. Multiple retirement accounts may need to be divided as well.
High net worth couples also have unique assets to divide, including:
- Overseas assets
- Valuable collections
With so much property on the line, seeking legal assistance is vital. Our lawyers will meticulously examine every aspect of your financial situation to safeguard your wealth. We will ensure all your assets are accounted for, and we will collaborate with financial professionals to get an accurate value of your marital estate. Once we know your net worth, we can strategize the best path forward for you to maximize it after your divorce.
