Dividing High-Value Assets In Everett And Snohomish County
Every divorcing couple has issues of community property division to resolve. It is common to struggle with questions like, “Who gets to keep the family home?” and “Will I still be held responsible for my spouse’s debts?”
Some families, however, have particularly high-value assets to consider, which adds a distinct level of complexity to standard divorce proceedings. The average family law and divorce attorney is not necessarily equipped to resolve these issues because they require an understanding of the valuation of assets as well as the collateral consequences of liquidating versus retaining assets.
At Akiona Law, PLLC, you will receive skillful counsel from high-asset divorce lawyers who understand the full scope of issues you face as you negotiate or litigate property division in Washington state.
Comprehensive Answers To Your Property Division Questions
We work with our clients personally to help them consider complex questions such as:
- What if the value of my assets reflects physical property or investments I hold, as opposed to my income and cash flow?
- Will I be ordered to pay more child support or spousal support if I retain ownership over a highly valued asset?
- How is private business ownership split fairly in cases where neither party, only one party or both parties want to retain ownership after the divorce is final?
- If we invested in retirement accounts together, how can we split those assets without drawing funds from them and losing money in the process?
These are just a few examples of how highly valued and unique assets can complicate your divorce.
