Minnesota High Net Worth Divorce
We represent business owners, professionals and others with a high net worth. We also represent individuals who are divorcing for the second or third time. In these cases, nonmarital property from a prior marriage may need to be protected during property division.
Complex marital estates may include assets such as:
- Businesses and professional practices
- Retirement plans/IRAs
- Farmland/family farms
- Cabins and lake property
- Winter property, vacation/second homes
- Nonmarital property from previous marriages
Our attorneys will thoroughly review your assets to ensure that they are valued correctly. We will argue for an equitable distribution that protects your interests. If there are disputes over marital versus nonmarital property, we can trace the ownership of the asset.
In addition to property division, a high-asset divorce must address spousal maintenance and child support when appropriate. When one individual has a higher income or net worth than the other party, it is important to balance the reasonable needs of the party receiving support with the income of the other. While the standard of living during the marriage may be a consideration, support for reasonable needs and expenses is more likely to be granted than support for expenses that are unnecessary. Every case is unique, however. It is best to discuss yours with one of our attorneys.
