How High-Asset Divorce Cases Are Handled
Florida is an equitable distribution state, meaning asset distribution will be what is deemed fair by the court, rather than the strict 50-50 division used in community property states. When dealing with how the properties, investments, business holdings, and other assets will be distributed in a divorce, your attorney often utilizes the services of other professionals, including private investigators, forensic accountants, tax experts, appraisers, actuaries, and more.
High-asset divorces can involve:
- Investment portfolios, requiring the expertise of a forensic accountant to determine how stocks, bonds, and other investments were financed, as well as their value and growth
- 401Ks, IRAs, and pensions
- Business holdings or professional practices, also requiring an appraisal of the value and growth and an understanding of how they were financed
- Real estate holdings, such as the marital home, vacation homes, commercial property, and other income property, which need appraisals and financing information, plus growth factors
- Vehicles, including cars, trucks, private jets, etc.
- Watercraft, such as boats and yachts
- Other valuable assets, such as art collections, jewelry, and more
Factors that may influence how these assets are divided include:
- Whether spousal support is being paid
- The employability of an unemployed or underemployed spouse
- Whether a prenuptial agreement is in play
- Whether any of the property is considered to be separate from the marital or conjoined assets
