Steps to organize assets in a high net worth divorce
In any divorce, it is best to avoid litigation. Avoiding litigation, however, is not always possible. If you and your spouse cannot agree on arbitration or mediation, it is essential that you follow specific steps to prepare for litigation. As a highly qualified Tampa high net worth divorce attorney, I can facilitate the steps that are necessary to organize your financial information so that you are well-prepared for the legal proceedings to commence. Key steps:
Identify non-marital assets — Non-marital assets are considered separate from the marital estate. Non-marital assets are generally any assets that were acquired before the marriage, received as a gift, or inherited.
Identify the marital estate —Both assets and liabilities that will be considered when dividing the marital estate. When taking inventory of assets and liabilities, you must take this very seriously and ensure all information is current and accurate. Do not hide assets with the hope that your spouse will overlook these. These can be set aside as fraudulent and you will lose credibility with the court. If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, I can help you investigate this matter to determine if any assets exist that are not readily apparent.
