The Many Complexities of High-Asset Divorces in San Mateo
High-asset divorces come with a large laundry list of complicated topics to resolve before coming to an agreement about property division.
In the state of California, any income earned or asset acquired while married falls under community property – meaning that, in the event of divorce, each party receives community property and assets that are equivalent in value.
A division of high assets also requires a comprehensive look at each spouse’s financial health, including a full disclosure of all assets, and an accurate determination of each party’s net worth. This may require the services of financial experts to help with valuation of property and the monetary value attached to each spouse.
The tax ramifications are also important to note in a high-asset divorce. The large amount of properties, transfer of ownership, and any capital gains on liquidation of investments can complicate an already complex division process.
In these cases, it’s always recommended to contact the capable attorneys at Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C. for assistance in proper, reasonable asset division.
