Frequently Asked Questions About High-Asset Divorces

High-asset divorces are complicated because of the nature of the assets involved, the difficulty of valuing that property appropriately and the tax issues that come with the division of the marital property and debts. In many cases, high-asset divorces end up in litigation.

What happens if there’s no prenuptial or postnuptial agreement?

In a community property state like Texas, nearly everything a couple acquires after the start of the marriage is to be divided equally in a divorce. However, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements can override this general rule, although their validity is sometimes a subject of dispute.

How do I handle employee benefits, including stock options, deferred compensation and business valuations?

Determining the values of these particular assets may require appraisers, real estate professionals, financial professionals and tax professionals. It is important to gather as much information as possible so that a couple can make informed decisions and reduce the emotional strain involved in the divorce.

How long does a high-asset divorce process take in Sugar Land, Texas?

There is no set answer to this question. It typically takes a long time to identify, value and divide complicated assets. If both parties are cooperative and willing to negotiate, the process can be quicker.
