Common Issues in High Net Worth Divorces

Like all couples, higher income partners who are divorcing worry about child custody battles, ongoing spousal and child support, and dividing resources. However, there are certain challenges that are unique to high asset divorce cases. In order to resolve them in a positive way, you will need to discuss your case with an experienced divorce attorney who is sensitive to your needs, and who has a solid understanding of all the financial factors involved.

Some of the financial issues specific to a higher income divorce may include:

  • Securing an unbiased evaluation for all property values
  • Valuating both commercial and residential properties
  • Analyzing the value of stocks and investment funds
  • Reviewing the terms of complex premarital agreements
  • Discovering any hidden streams of revenue via forensic accounting services
  • Calculating income for non-traditional sources of earning, including investments, real estate properties, etc.

Nebraska is what is known as an “equitable distribution” state. Of course, equitable does not mean equal: If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse cannot reach a settlement out of court, a judge will decide what is fair based on whether your properties are marital or personal. The judge will also consider the contribution of each party within your relationship, which can include your paid labor, total earning potential, and any unpaid work around the home.
