High-Asset Divorce in New Haven County

What Is a High-Asset Divorce?

High-asset divorce cases involve extensive amounts of real estate, investment and business accounts, and other financial assets that require the use of skilled and thorough financial planning. When facing a divorce, these assets become a large focus of the settlement, which can take months or even years to negotiate.

  • High-asset divorces take the following into account:
  • Real estate
  • Investment accounts
  • Retirement accounts
  • Business assets
  • Trusts
  • Stocks and stock options
  • Life insurance
  • Expense accounts

How Are Assets Divided in a Divorce?

In most high-asset cases, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement exists, however if this is not the case, Connecticut law states that all assets must be divided among the spouses based on several factors that the court will use to determine a settlement.

  • These factors include:
  • Present and future earning potential
  • The length of the marriage
  • The reason for the divorce
  • Each person's health and other needs
  • Other pertinent financial issues

When large amounts of money and other assets are involved, we may also recommend hiring a forensic accountant or other valuator. Our attorneys work tirelessly to not only handle all aspects of the divorce, but also work to keep the divorce discreet in order to protect both parties and all of the assets involved.
