Generally, any money earned before you got married will not be divided when you get divorced. Property division can be highly complicated if your individual assets, including retirement benefits, were commingled during your marriage. Any assets acquired during your marriage could be subject to an equitable distribution. This does not necessarily mean a 50/50 split. One spouse, for example, could maintain a greater share of the retirement benefits while the other spouse may keep other property equaling the same value. Property division is based on guidelines but divorcing parties can reach settlements outside of the guidelines. Factors such as a disparity in health, employment history and child custody issues can complicate high-asset divorces making it important to work with an experienced lawyer.

Skilled Spousal Support Attorneys Working for You

In many high-value divorces, spousal support is an issue. Clients are often seeking support payments or attempting to limit their obligations. We have extensive experience representing financially independent spouses and clients seeking spousal support. Our firm can work to see that your rights are protected.

Maintain a Fair Share of Your Real Estate Property

Many couples who are dealing with a high-asset divorce may hold numerous pieces of property. Whether these are homes, vacation homes, rental properties or empty pieces of land, a proper value must be assessed in order for us to see that you get your fair share of the value.

Handling Business Valuations in Minnesota

One aspect of a high-asset divorce that may complicate matters is the holding of a business by one or both spouses. It is important for the business to be properly valued in order for the courts to determine how it should be divided.
