Residents of Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley facing divorce with high net worth should retain an attorney experienced in complex financial divorces. High asset divorces require specialized knowledge above and beyond a typical divorce. Our Fort Collins divorce attorneys have worked with forensic accountants, valuation analysists, appraisers, and other experts when representing clients facing a complex financial divorce.
The division of assets in high net worth divorce cases in Colorado proceeds by identifying what property exists, classifying the property interests as marital or separate, valuing the interests, then determining an equitable distribution of the property. Experts are commonly employed to determine the value of property interests such as:
- Business Interests
- Closely Held Corporations
- Retirement Investments
- Real estate
The equitable division of property needs to be determined before addressing maintenance. While Colorado has a guideline to suggest the amount and duration of maintenance, this guideline does not apply when the combined incomes of the parties exceeds $244,000 annually. When the income of the parties is high maintenance will be addressed.
Those facing a high asset divorce may wish to keep their divorce private. Celebrities, public figures, and business leaders may wish to keep their divorce proceedings out of the public arena and we offer options for a private divorce in Colorado.
