Knoxville High-Asset Divorce Lawyers
Fighting for Your Best Interests in Complex Divorce Cases
Going through a divorce involves physical, emotional, and financial separations. For couples with a high net-worth, identifying, untangling, and fairly dividing marital property can be a difficult, contentious, and challenging process. For these couples, the stakes are high; you may be dealing with wealth that has taken decades to accumulate through hard work, saving, and smart financial planning. The task may be made more complex in cases where one spouse has produced the lion’s share of the wealth while the other has provided crucial support over the years of the marriage.
It is vital to bring your case to a family law firm that has experience in representing high-asset divorce cases. With so much on the line, you need a highly-qualified legal professional protecting your rights and interests. At Held Law Firm, we have more than 50 years of combined experience in resolving divorce and family law issues. We understand how to deal with the complex division of marital property and alimony issues that must be resolved fairly and equitably in a high-asset divorce.
High-Asset Divorce Cases in Tennessee
In general, the more wealth you and your spouse have accrued over the years of your marriage, the more complex the marital estate can become. It requires a longer and more intensive process to identify, value, and divide these assets, especially in cases where disputes have arisen. In some instances, a spouse may have tried to hide assets from the other or may have used, sold, transferred, or squandered assets without the knowledge or consent of the other.
Marital assets can include:
- The family home and other real estate holdings, including multi-family properties, unbuilt land, or commercial property
- Stock portfolios and other investment accounts
- Valuable artwork or other collections
- Yachts, boats, and expensive vehicles
- Closely-held or family businesses or interests in such businesses
- Professionally licensed practices
- Retirement accounts, pensions, and deferred compensation
Clients with these types of assets can include high-level executives, CEOs, doctors, celebrities, athletes, and others. In such cases, the process of dividing and distributing marital property may include investigations to find and identify hidden assets, recovery of assets that may have been wrongfully gifted, valuing or appraising assets, conducting forensic audits, and more. These cases may also be impacted by prenuptial agreements that must be evaluated and/or enforced. The process may involve expert study, advice, and reporting, such as from forensic accountants, appraisers, and other professional advisors.
Fairly dividing and distributing such complex assets can be a lengthy and intricate process. While our firm will always make an attempt to help you resolve your high-asset case as amicably as possible, such as through mediation or collaborative divorce, it may take courtroom litigation to get a fair outcome.
